My research has focused on three broad areas within the concept of Natural Products Chemistry, Medicinal Plant Analysis and Material Chemistry. The areas are (i) Identification, purification and structural elucidation of potential bioactive compounds in plant materials that may be of importance for the promotion of health (ii) Isolation of volatiles and non-volatiles from plant sources by conventional methods and characterization of their aroma and flavor constituents; (iii) Evaluation of the pharmacological potentials of plant materials and implementation of in vitro and in vivo assays for bioassay-guided fractionation of plant extracts for assessment of IC50, LD50 and ED50, anti- inflammatory, analgesic etc values of isolated compounds; (iv) Synthesis, characterization and application of nanoparticles.
Present research focuses on the Chemistry of Cannabis for medicinal applications
