Research Interest

Research Programme (new)

The research programme in the Loh’s research group is firmly grounded in modern synthetic methodologies. We are highly interested to develop new C-C, C-N and C-O bonding forming protocols utilizing state-of-the-art and sustainable catalytic methods such as transition metal catalysis, organocatalysis as well as main group element catalysis such as calcium catalysis.

Of specific interest is the development of stereoselective protocols to access synthetic carbohydrates and glycosides that will be further investigated as small molecule probes that target oncological pathways.
