Analytical Chemistry


Research Interest:

Designing novel chiral and achiral pseudostationary phases and stationary phases for different modes of Capillary Electrophoresis-Mass Spectrometry (CE-MS). This includes Micellar Electrokinetic Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (MEKC-MS) using Nanomicelles and Capillary Electrochromatography (CEC-MS) using Monolithic, Open tubular and Packed columns; (b) Development of Chip-HPLC-MS for analysis of small and large molecule Biomarkers for early Disease Diagnostics; (c) High throughput screening of Lead Chiral Drug; (e) Studying Drug-Drug Interactions; (f) CE-MS and HPLC-MS of Metabolomics, Proteomics and Foodomics; (g) Analysis of Herbal Anticancer Agents by HPLC-MS and CE-MS.
