CPRI

Center for Process Research and Innovation (CPRI) :

CPRI is the Institute’s Chemistry vertical. The research activity in CPRI is supported by Industry. CPRI has two main thrust areas: Process R&D and Medicinal Chemisty.

Process research involves the identification and development of non-infringing routes of synthesis to meet industry needs and leading to intellectual property generation. In process development, an existing process is optimized to meet specific requirements of industry and the know-how is transferred.

Research @ CPRI:

  • Total synthesis, Semi-synthesis, Scalability Optimization and Catalysis, Methodology Development, Solid-supported and Recyclable reagents.
  • Green Chemistry, Reactions in Aqueous media, Solvent-free reactions, Recyclable reagents and Environmentally benign processes.
  • Asymmetric Synthesis, Novel Enantioselective Methods, Chiral Auxiliaries and Induction.
  • Heterocyclic ring constructions, C-C bond coupling and Novel Protecting Groups
