It has the capability of handling a wide variety of sample types; such as, solids, liquids, volatile and viscous samples in the field of pharmaceuticals, polymers, chemicals and energy. Based on the classical Pregl-Dumas method, samples are combusted in a pure Oxygen environment, with the resultant combustion gases measured in an automated fashion.

 

This instrument also incorporates a newly developed gas separation method, which utilizes time proven solutions. It adds an instrument with special performance for small and very small sample amounts of 1-10 mg or less

 

 

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer 

                                                                                                                                                 

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer Shimadzu 7000 F has recently been procured by the Department of Chemistry. AAS is used to estimate exact amount of metal particles both major (e.g. Na, K, Ca, Mg) and trace elements (e.g. Pb, Cu, Cd, Cr etc) up to ppm (parts per million) level in food, pharmaceutical, water or any other types of samples. This instrument is equipped with Autosampler and HVG (Hydride Vapor Generator) that will help in estimating toxic elements like As, Hg, Sb up to ppb (parts per billion) level. 

 

 

UV/Vis Spectrophotometers                                                                                                                      

 

The electronic spectra of the synthesized compounds or complexes can be obtained in the solutions using UV-Visible Spectrophotometer (Shimadzu, UV-1700 with UV PC software). This system is also being used for performing Spectro-photometric titrations, measurement of stability constant and optimization of reaction conditions for the preparation of metal complex ions with organic ligands. Using this system, the Department has also established the facility for the measurement of oxidative stress and anti-oxidant activity of biological and abiological samples through ABTS, FRAP, DPPH methods.

 

 

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer

 

The Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer QP-2010 is being used for the analysis of volatile constituents in the samples of natural or synthetic origin. GC-MS has extensive application in forensic and pharmaceutical analysis of drugs. Various research groups in the Department working in the areas of natural products, organo-pharmaceutical synthesis, pharmaceutical analysis, pesticides process design and production are actively using this facility.
