Varattur D. Reddy (V.D. Reddy), Professor of Chemistry (Physical Sciences), Kingsborough Community College.

Professor Varattur D. Reddy is an Organic Chemistry Doctoral Faculty at the Graduate Center-CUNY and Director of NMR Facility at Kingsborough. Varattur Reddy’s research focuses on the synthesis of organic and organometallic compounds to study anticancer activity. Organic synthesis involves total synthesis of natural and unnatural products and modified carbohydrates. Organometallic chemistry involves synthesis of novel organometallic catalysts, efficient methodologies for the synthesis of biologically active molecules, bioorganometallics, and drug delivery systems. Research facilities at Kingsborough are 400 MHz NMR Facility, IR, GC, and HPLC.
