Medicinal plants are a rich source of producing chemical constituents in the maximum effective way with specific selectivity. From the mid of 19th century, many bioactive chemical constituents have been reported from medicinal plants and numerous of them being used as dynamic constituents in the modern medicine.

Methodologies and workflow of Medicinal plants:

  1. Bioassay-directed studies on the chemical constituents of medicinal plants of Pakistan.
  2. Green synthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles and their biomedicinal applications.
  3. Pharmacological studies of both natural and synthetic organic compounds for the discovery of lead drugs by using different instrument like Spectrophotometer, NMR, and Mass spectrometery.
  4. Computer literate, proficient using Windows, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint also equipment sizing, load profiling.
  5. NMR, Mass Spectrometer, FT-IR, UV spectrophotometer, Recycling and Manual HPLC, Polari meter, GC chromatography.
