Academic Interests

Research interests focused on the development of new organic materials having electronic and optical properties, containing tetrathiafulvalene (TTF), dithienothiophene (DTT), thienothiophene (TT), ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT), as well as development of new organic reactions particularly the new reactions of Lawesson’s reagent and P4S10. Design and syntheses of fluorescent probes, containing 3-hydroxyflavone. 


1987-1990   PhD in organic chemistry with Prof. A. McKillop.

                        University of East Anglia, School of Chemical Sciences, Norwich NR4 7TJEngland.

                        Title of Thesis: "Synthetic Studies on Cytotoxic Alkaloids"

                        Financial Source : Turkish Government Scholarship

During the course of PhD study, a short new route to the pyrido[2,3,4-kl]acridine ring system, the  main skeleton of cytotoxic marine alkaloids such as amphimedine, calliactine, cystodytins, petrosamine, diplamine, norsegoline, kuanoniamine, etc. was developed involving two key steps (i) synthesis  of 5-acetamido-3,4-dihydro-8-methoxy-4-phenylquinoline-2(1H)-one via cyclisation of N-(5-acetamido-2-methoxyphenyl)-3-hydroxy-3-phenylpropanamide and (ii) an intramolecular nitrene insertion reaction of the nitrenes derived from 4-phenyl-5-azidoquinolines.
