Dr. Sabita Nayak currently an Associate Professor at Department of Chemistry. She has more than 11 years of teaching and research experience in the extended field of organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry research. She has 36 publications in peer reviewed journals to her credit. She completed Ph.D. on 2008 from NCL, Pune under the supervision of Dr. Mukund Gurjar.. The thesis work was based on “Synthetic studies toward the total synthesis of Eunicin, Palau’amide and Asimitrin”. After completion her Ph.D., she was worked as a Research Associate in Chembiotek, Pharma- Ltd, Pune. Her postdoctoral work at University of Southwestern Medical Research Center, Dallas, Texas, USA consisted of medicinal chemistry research. She has special interest in natural product synthesis, hybrid natural product synthesis, medicinal chemistry, Carbohydrate Chemistry and 1,3 dipolar cycloaddition reaction.

Base mediated green synthesis of enantiopure 2-C-spiro-glycosyl-3-nitrochromenes

A novel green synthetic methodology has been developed to obtain enantiopure (2S)-2-C-spiro-glycosyl-3-nitrochromenes following the oxa-Michael–aldol condensation reaction of sugar derived 3-C-vinyl nitro olefins with substituted salicylaldehydes using Et3N as a base under neat conditions at rt–40 °C. The stereochemistry of the product is confirmed by a single crystal X-ray study. Several advantages are associated with this protocol such as cost effectiveness, easy accessibility, short reaction time, high yields, wide substrate scope and high enantiopurity.

Microwaveassisted Onepot, Threecomponent Regiospecific and Sterospecific Synthesis of Spiro Indanone Pyrrolidine/Piperidine Fused Nitrochromene Derivatives Through 1,3Dipolar Cycloaddition Reactions

The synthesis of a new series of spirocyclic molecules has been expediently accomplished via a onepot, three component 1,3dipolar cycloaddition reaction. 2Phenylnitrochromene dipolarophiles were reacted with azomethine ylides, generated in situ by the condensation of dicarbonyl compound indane1,3dione and secondary amino acid (Lproline/pipecolic acid), to produce the corresponding cycloadducts in good yields (85–90%) under classical as well as under microwave irradiation. The cycloaddition reaction was found to be highly regiospecific and diasterospecific.

Diastereoselective synthesis of novel spiro indanone fused pyrano[3,2-c]chromene derivatives following hetero-Diels–Alder reaction and in vitro anticancer studies

A diastereoselective oxa-hetero-Diels–Alder reaction for the synthesis of novel spiro indanone fused pyrano[3,2-c]chromene derivatives and studied their in vitro anticancer activities.
