Short-term Ph.D. Research Attachment Scholarship Award jointly by the British Council and HEC (Pakistan), for six month advance research study in UK.
This research was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Chris J. Richards at the School of Chemistry and Pharmacy, University of East Anglia, UK
This 9-months postdoctoral research program from the University of East Anglia, UK was based on enantioselective synthesis and application to asymmetric synthesis of planar chiral nucleophilic catalysts. A key Research Publication entitled, â€œEnantioselective Synthesis and Application to the Allylic Imidate Rearrangement of Amine-Coordinated Palladacycle Catalysts of Cobalt Sandwich Complexesâ€ has been published in Chemistry- A European Journal. 2013, 19, 17951-17962 (impact factor = 5.9)
