Dr. Dinesh Vidhani

Dr. Dinesh Vidhani is a Research Faculty member at the Florida State University. He earned his doctorate degree in Synthetic Organic Chemistry at the Florida State University, where he carried out research on gold(I)-catalyzed cascade cyclizations, gold(I)-catalyzed [3, 3] rearrangements and tin-mediated selective reduction of aromatic enones. He has published his research in several peer-reviewed international quality journals and is also the recipient of MDS (Molecular Design and Synthesis) Award. He has also patented a transition metal-catalyzed method in the USPTO. Currently, he works on multidisciplinary research projects that involve synthetic-organic, physical-organic, organometallic and computational chemistry. Besides research, Dinesh takes keen interest in the US Patent laws and Rules that are concerned with determining patentability of an invention [35 U.S.C 101, 102, 103 and 112]. He is also proficient with most sections of the MPEP and the landmark judgements of the PTAB, the Federal Circuit and the US Supreme Court.
