About the Authors

K. L. Ametareceived his doctorate degree in organic chemistry from M. L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India. He is assistant professor of chemistry in the Faculty of Arts, Science and Commerce, Mody Institute of Technology and Science, Deemed University, Lakshmangarh, Rajasthan, India. His research area is the synthesis, characterization, and biological evaluation of bioactive heterocyclic systems of different sizes. In addition, he has keen interest in heterogeneous catalyzed organic synthesis and photocatalysis. He has published a number of research articles in various journals of national and international repute.

Andrea Penoniis assistant professor in organic chemistry at the Department of Science and High Technology at the University of Insubria, Italy. He received a PhD from the University of Milan. He did his postdoctoral training at the University of Milan, and at the University of Oklahoma, where he studied annulation reactions between nitro- and nitrosoaromatics with alkynes. Since 2003, he has been a faculty member at the University of Insubria (Como). His research is particularly focused on the synthesis of heterocycles, naturally occurring compounds, and potentially bioactive molecules. He is also involved in research projects on the carbon-nitrogen bond formation mediated by metals and metal complexes and in the synthesis of nitrogen-containing heterocycles by metathesis reactions.
