Chemical separations, capillary electrophoresis and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry, Chip HPLC-MS; column engineering and fabrication, chiral organic synthesis of nanomicelles and ionic liquids


Key areas of research in our group includes:

(a) Designing novel chiral and achiral stationary phases for different modes of CE-MS using glycolipids, amino acid lipids and glycopeptide nanomicelles,

(b) Developing Monolithic, Open tubular and Packed columns for CEC-MS for Metabolomics;

(c) Development of Chip-HPLCMS for analysis of glycan library markers;

(d) Studying enantioselective drug-drug Interactions by CE-MS
