RESEARCH AREAS

The main work of our department is the design of novel drug substances which can possess several biological activities, development of synthetic methods and characterization of these molecules by the use of spectral techniques. By these studies, it is also aimed to reveal structural features required to design more effective molecules which could show the targeted biological activity. Our synthetic work mainly concentrates on heterocyclic rings and screening of the biological activity of the compounds synthesized in our department, is conducted with national and international collaborations.

Studies on model compounds to determine their metabolic fate also have a basic importance in our department. These works particularly focus on nitrogenous compounds and aims at isolation and characterization of the metabolites generated, as well as elucidation of the mechanisms that plays role in biotransformation reactions.

Furthermore, studies on development and validation of spectroscopic and chromatographic methods, for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of drug substances in pharmaceutical dosage forms and biological fluids, are also carried out in our department.
