SynBioC, the research group of Prof. C. Stevens is focussing their activities along three research lines.
A first research theme is the synthesis and the development of synthetic methodology of small molecules for medicinal and agrochemical applications. Attention is paid to azaheterocyclic compounds and aminophosphonates as enzyme inhibitors and to the synthesis of natural product analogues.
Secondly, research is performed on continuous flow microreactor technology for scale up of reactions which are difficult to scale up under batch conditions.
A third research theme deals with the chemical modification of renewable resources to develop building blocks for the industry to stimulate the transition to a circular economy.
