A 6-day workshop on new and innovative techniques in the field of Chemistry was held in Shoolini University campus. The workshop focused on High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectrometry (GCMS), techniques with wide applications.

It was inaugurated by Shoolini University Pro Vice Chancellor Prof Atul Khosla. Scientists at the University have created an exciting new way to learn about these two most powerful techniques in the analytical laboratory. The workshop was organised by the School of Chemistry under the Chairmanship of Dr Neeraj Gupta.

About 150 delegates participated in the workshop were exposed to exciting science and innovative skills in the world of liquid phase separation science and analysis. Addressing the participants, Head of Research Dr. Saurabh Kulsherstha said the workshop was of great benefit to the scientific community.

Dr. Neeraj Gupta, Chairman of the workshop, said GC can be used for reaction monitoring and combined with mass spectrometry. The overall goal of the training programme would lead to a multitude of careers in chemistry, pharmaceuticals, life science, food science, forensic science and biotechnology, Dr Gupta added.
