Dr. Devdutt Chaturvedi obtained his Ph. D. degree in Medicinal Chemistry, from the Medicinal Chemistry Division of the Central Drug Research Institute (CSIR), Lucknow, India. Thereafter, He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow (2003-2005) at the University of Georgia, USA. Later on, he has also worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow (2005-2006) at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, University of Goettingen, Germany. He returned to India and worked shortly as a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow (2006-2007) at the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology (I. I. T.), Madras and as a Scientist (2007-2011) at the Bioorganic Chemistry Division, Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine (CSIR), Jammu and Natural Products Chemistry Division, North- East Institute of Science and Technology (CSIR), Jorhat-785006, Assam. He has worked on several areas of organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry such as design and synthesis of novel classes of antidiabetic, antifertility, antitubercular, anti-inflammatory, hypolipedemic, anti-HIV/HBV, anti-cancer, antimalarial, antimicrobial, anti-alzheimer agents wherein he has investigated various kinds of structurally diverse synthetic/natural molecules such as steroids, terpenoids, nucleosides, structurally diverse heterocycles, carbamates and related compounds. He has published more than 70 research papers (containing more than 700 citations, with h-index = 20) in reputed international journals and filed 11 patents.
He is the reviewer of several leading international journals of different publishers such as American Chemical Society (ACS), Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Science Direct Journals, Theime journals, Japanese journals, Wiley Interscience journals, Bentham Science journals, Taylor & Francis journals, Hindawi Publishers journals, etc. His work has further been recognized from the various kinds of awards such as Most Cited Paper Award (2006-2009) for one of his Tetrahedron Letters publication, Young Scientist Award (2008-2009) from the Govt. of Uttar Pradesh, Highest Impact Factor Award (2009-2010) for publishing a review article in Chemical Society Reviews ( I. F. = 28.76) from the North-East Institute of Science and Technology (CSIR), Jorhat, Assam, India and DST-Fast Track Young Scientist Award (2010) from the Govt. of India. Recently, He has also worked as a Guest Editor, for publishing a hot topic issue entitled “ Organic synthesis using green reaction media” for a leading international journal “Current Organic Synthesis” ( I. F. = 3.95) published by Bentham Science Publishers, Ltd. He has also been invited to become a member of editorial board of several international journals. He is presently working as a Research Professor, at the Laboratory of Medicinal Chemistry, Amity Institute of Pharmacy, Amity University Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow Campus, Lucknow, U. P., India, on the design and synthesis of novel class of bioactive natural/semisynthetic/synthetic molecules for the treatment of various diseases employing novel synthetic methodologies and has been associated with the chemistry and biology of organic carbamates since more than a decade.
