The School of Natural Sciences, Department of Chemistry, invites you to a Colloquium titled En-Light-ening C-H functionalization by Prof. Debabrata Maiti, Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai on 31 January 2022.

Abstract
Mimicking nature has always been a coveted target for scientific communities. A precise understanding has emerged as to how enzymes accomplish chemical transformations. Enzymes catalyze inert C-H bond functionalization in a regio- and stereoselective manner using a metal-active site.

Inspired by the nature, we have developed catalytic methods to functionalize carbon-hydrogen (C–H) bonds which provides significant economic and environmental benefits over traditional synthetic methods. The applicability of our strategies towards synthesis of various complex molecules will be discussed.

About the Speaker
Prof. Debabrata Maiti received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 2008 under the supervision of Prof. Kenneth D. Karlin. After postdoctoral studies at MIT with Prof. Stephen L. Buchwald, he joined the Department of Chemistry at IIT Bombay in 2011. His research interests are focused on the development of new and sustainable synthetic and catalytic methodologies. Currently, he is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Organic Chemistry.
