NIT Trichy Prof Karvembu has been admitted as a Fellow of the prestigious RSC, UK

Dr. R. Karvembu, Professor in the Department of Chemistry, National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT-T) has been admitted as a Fellow of the prestigious Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), United Kingdom for his contributions in the fields of organometallic chemistry, catalysis and bioinorganic chemistry.

He has made significant contributions in both basic and applied fields. His research group observed new coordination modes for some important ligands, which lead to many other investigations in basic coordination chemistry. Many effective catalytic systems have been developed for industrially important oxidation, (asymmetric) reduction, hydrogen transfer, alkylation and coupling reactions. His investigations in sustainable catalysis provided processes for the conversion of waste biomass to valuable products. Transition metal complexes which have excellent anticancer activity and less toxicity to normal cells have been reported by his group. Extensive structure-activity relationships have been studied particularly with respect to ruthenium organometallic compounds, which will be useful for the design of effective anticancer drugs.

Dr. G. Aghila, Director, NIT-T congratulated and handed over the certificate to Dr. R. Karvembu.
