Prof. D. B. Ramachary, professor at School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad has been invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, in recognition of his significant contribution to  the chemical sciences, and in particular seminal contributions in developing new, novel and green sustainable reactions.

Prof. D. B. Ramachary’s laboratory at School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad has made some seminal contributions in developing new, novel, and green reactions of both achiral and chiral version of organocatalytic reductive coupling reaction, dienamine-catalysis, aminoenyne-catalysis, base induced ring opening (BIRO) reaction, organocatalytic TZC reactions, asymmetric supramolecular-organocatalysis, an enamine- and enolate-mediated organocatalytic azide–carbonyl [3+2]-cycloaddition reactions through bio-mimetic organocatalysis. These findings have received wide attention of researchers world-wide; it is expected that they will pave way to utilize for the design and synthesis of new drugs, materials and natural products in more economical manner and also will give inspiration for the development of new reactions with enhanced selectivity and reactivity.

Prof. Dr. D. B. Ramachary ( ) has more than 95 publications to his credit and has won other awards and recognitions like the Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences-Bangalore; Fellow of the Telangana Academy of Sciences-Hyderabad; CRSI Bronze Medal-2016; University of Hyderabad Chancellor’s Award-2014; B. M. Birla Science Prize in Chemical Sciences-2011; Anil Kumar Bose Memorial Award of the INSA-2010; Certificate of Appreciation as Best Thesis Adviser from Eli Lilly and Company, USA for 2011-2014; Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry; INSA Medal for Young Scientist-2006; Editorial Advisory Board Member of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry Journal; Editorial Advisory Board Member of The European Journal of Organic Chemistry; Associate Fellow of the Andhra Pradesh Akademi of Sciences; and Member of The National Academy of Sciences, India. He has successfully guided more than 15 PhD scholars and his research areas include Asymmetric Organocatalysis, Supramolecular-Organocatalysis and Designing New Chemical Reactions.

The Royal Society of Chemistry is the world’s leading Chemistry community, advancing excellence in the chemical sciences with over 50,000 members and a knowledge business that spans the globe. It was formed in 1980 from the amalgamation of the Chemical Society, the Royal Institute of Chemistry, the Faraday Society, and the Society for Analytical Chemistry with a new Royal Charter and the dual role of learned society and professional body.
