Area of research
  • My research interests include isolation and structure elucidation of biologically active natural products from both higher plants and marine especially alkaloids, flavonoids, steroids, triterpenes, and volatile oils. 
  • Optimization of large scale extraction and isolation of natural products of commercial value. This includes the search of active components from plants used in folk medicine to understand validity of centuries old use of Herbal Medicine which possess antimicrobial, hepatoprotective, anti-cancer, antidiabetic properties. 
  • Chemical fingerprinting using metabolomics or metabolic profiling by HPLC, GC, and LC/MS, and NMR in medicinal plant products.  
  • Application of green technology to the production of natural product extracts using natural deep eutectic solvents, ionic liquids, deep eutectic solvents and supercritical fluids.
