Welcome to the website of our chemistry research group at the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Our research is aimed at the development of new synthetic methodologies based on the application of pericyclic reactions, including transition metal catalysis. We are strongly focus on asymmetric transformations and synthesis of biologically and pharmacologically active organic compounds including amino acids, peptidomimetics, alkaloids, carbohydrates, iminosugars or β-lactams.
