Research interests

  • Chiroptical spectroscopy (determination of the absolute configuration or absolute conformation by VCD and theoretical calculation).
  • Conformational analysis of linear and cyclic peptides by CD (ECD and VCD), FTIR and NMR spectroscopy.
  • Spectroscopic studies on chiral crown ethers and their complexes with aralkylammonium ions and cations.
  • Spectroscopic studies on cation-peptide and cation-protein interactions.
  • Synthesis of fluorescence-labelled cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs). Spectroscopic and biological studies on CCP- oligonucleotide conjugates.
