We use logic design and synthetic organic chemistry to smart compounds with interesting physical properties including fluorescence emission, DNA binding, fluorescent-based sensors, functional organic dyes, chemosensor (for specific anions/cations and biomolecules),  and anti-cancer activity. Our synthesized compounds that bind to DNA with high affinity is used to probe their biological function, and may provide new leads for anti-cancer drugs.
