Research Description
My research interests focus on the field of medicinal and natural product chemistry including the isolation and structural elucidation of natural products from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), analytical evaluation of herbal medicine, total synthesis of biologically active natural product, and design and development of anticancer drugs. My research involves a wide range of spectroscopic techniques, including 1D and 2D-NMR, FT-IR, and LC/MS analyses.
