On the occasion of her 80th birthday we publish a special dedicated to Prof. H.Ila. Prof. Ila received her Ph.D. degree from IIT Kanpur (1968). After a postdoctoral stay with Prof. R. L. Whistler at Purdue University, USA (1969), she joined Central drug Research Institute, Lucknow (1970) as research scientist. Together with her husband Prof. H. Junjappa, also a chemistry professor, she moved to new North Eastern Hill University, Shillong in 1977, to establish a School of Chemistry there. She became professor in 1986, and joined the Department of Chemistry at IIT Kanpur, her alma mater, in 1995. After her superannuation (2007), she moved to Bangalore and joined Jubilant Biosys, Bangalore, as ‘Principal Advisor, Medicinal Chemistry’ (2007-2009). In 2010 January, she moved to New Chemistry Unit, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) Bangalore, as INSA Senior Scientist (2010-2014) and presently continuing there as ‘Hindustan  Lever Research Professor (2015 onward).

Recent Advancements in The Chemistry of Diazo Compounds
Namrata Rastogi (Send e-mail)
Deadline: April  30, 2024
Link to the virtual issue (coming soon)

The diazo compounds possess immense synthetic potential due to the inherently ambiphilic nature of the diazo group. The innovative design of diazo group bearing substrates has led to several classes of synthetically useful diazo substrates such as vinyl diazo compounds,  fluorinated diazo compounds, diazophosphonates etc. The reactivity umpolung in hypervalent iodine diazo compounds and diazo sulfonium salts further diversified their already versatile reactivity profile. Moreover, recent application of diazo substrates in visible light-mediated reactions has further widened their synthetic scope. This special issue would be a collection of research or review articles on the synthesis as well as reactions of diazo group bearing compounds aiming to highlight the recent advancements in the field.
