Focal points and main thrusts of research: Organic chemistry
Pesticides, insecticides

Research of the group is directed towards the rational synthesis of juvenile hormone (e.g. Methoprene) and insect pheromones, which can be used in the integrated environmental protection. They are also dealing with the preparation of new UVA light protective agents (e.g. benzotriazine and imidazo[1,2-a]pyrimidine derivatives), and the elaboration of new complex sigmatropic rearrangements, and their application for the preparation of novel heterocyclic compounds.
