Research Activities

Scholar are working day and night in various fields of Science and Technology to produce highly lucrative results, which in turns benefits/improves the Socio-Economic as well as health conditions of the community. This also promotes skill development by presenting new ideas, information and understanding according to the job orientation and market requirements. Following are some of the area in which the research is conducted, which may appear in many different forms as published articles, books, press releases or over the internet.

Water Quality Assessment

Water quality of surface and groundwater is being assessed in terms of cations and anions using instrumental and classical techniques from all over the Sindh and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan. Among this area, river indus, canals, lakes, natural springs and groundwater resources used for drinking purposes are being monitored and assessed. The effects of pollutants are analyzed and evaluated quantitatively.

Analytical Method Development

Spectroscopic (Spectrophotometry, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry, Spectrofluorometry, FTIR and Mass Spectrometry) and Chromatographic Techniques (Gas Chromatography, High Performance Liquid Chromatography, Capillary Electrophoresis and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) are used to develop analytical procedures for metal ions, non-metal ions, biological active compounds (Pharmaceutical products, catechcols amines, Neurotransmitters, alpha di-ketones, guinidino compounds, ketoacids) from real samples including geological materials and biological fluids.

Removal of Toxic Materials

New materials are being developed as adsorbents for the removal of toxic substances from water. These includes new synthetic materials and common natural waste products cheaply available (E.g. Sawdust, Orange peels, fish scalps etc) are being investigated.

Synthesis of New Polymers

New Schif base polymers and polythioamides are being prepared, characterized (by spectroscopic techniques, thermal analysis, and viscosities measurements) and are examined as chelating resins for removal of metal ions.

Pesticide Analysis

Spectroscopic and Chromatographic techniques are being used to develop analytical procedures and analyze different pesticides.

Development of New Stationary Phases

New stationary phases are developed for Gas Chromatography using metal chelates together with ov1, as mixed stationary phases for the separation of organic compounds based on donor acceptor properties of metal chelates.
