Research Summary

Natural Products Chemistry

In our laboratory, we explore the flora of Malaysia for novel drug leads: isolation and structure determination of natural products possessing significant potential for application as therapeutic agents. We also pursue the total synthesis or semisynthesis of biologically active natural products. We carry out structural modification of natural products to understand the relationships between the molecular structure and its biological activity. We study natural products and novel structures for application in treatment of cancers, hypertension, and other disease-states. The major class of natural products that we are studying are alkaloids.
