We use different types of ambient ionization mass spectrometric techniques in developing new analytical methodologies for applications in chemistry and biology. We are investing our efforts to develop new high-throughput assay methods to test the performance of different types of catalysts. We are also working to develop new ionization techniques in mass spectrometry for detecting important molecules, which are difficult to detect by conventional techniques, from the biological samples. New methodologies will also be developed to study biocatalysis and enzyme chemistry.
