Graduate programs served by Dr. de Lima: 1. Chemistry; 2. Pharmacy
Main lines of research
- Organic synthesis
- Medicinal chemistry
Themes of interest
- Enhancement of biological activity of bioactive natural products via structural transformation (Medicinal Chemistry).
- Total synthesis of natural products of biological interest.
- Use of biocatalysis to generate derivatives of natural and synthetic substrates (Biotransformation). Biocatalysis of natural products abundant in plants allows the generation of derivatives that would be difficult to obtain via standard chemical reactions.
- Use of the Gif system for remote-site oxidation of organic molecules to yield new derivatives from natural products.
