Virtual Education Project Pakistan (VEPP) is going to organize a free online course entitled “Findings from Mass Spectrometric Data and How to solve the Mass Spectra” by Dr. Syed Ghulam Musharraf, commencing from May 12, 2016.
About the Course
This 1 credit hour course is designed for M.S. /Ph.D. Scholars. The learn objective of this course is to familiarize students with the basic concepts about the mass spectral interpretations and the reactions involved in different ion sources of mass spectrometer included Electron Impact (E.I), Fast Atom Bombardment (FAB), Chemical Ionization (C.I), Electrospray Ionization (ESI) and Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization (MALDI) of various classes of compounds ranging from low to high molecular weight.
- Gas phase ion reactions using Electron Impact (E.I) source
- E.I fragmentation patterns of different classes of compounds and their spectral interpretations.
- Interpretation of Fast Atom Bombardment (FAB)
- Analysis of polar compounds by Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS)
- ESI-fragmentation patterns of different classes of compounds and their interpretations
- ESI-MS analysis of proteins/peptides
- Spectra interpretations of ESI-MS
- MALDI-MS analysis of polar compounds and their spectral interpretation
- Use of modern software for MS spectral interpretation
Introduction of the Speaker
Dr. Syed Ghulam Musharraf is an Associate Professor at H.E.J. Research Institute of Chemistry, University of Karachi. He obtained his Ph.D. from University of Karachi. Dr. Musharraf has over 90 research publications in reputed international journals. His current research is based on the utilization of modern mass spectrometric approaches as a powerful analytical tool in (1) proteomics and metabolomics studies for the search of bio-signatures in lung, oral and breast cancers which are common cancers in Pakistan, (2) screening and optimization of algal oil in Pakistani algae for biodiesel production, (3) development of protonated / deprotonated fragmentation pathways and structure fragmentation relationship (SFR) of pharmacologically significant classes of natural products, and (4) LC- and GC-MS method development for marker compound analysis in Pakistani agricultural products and commercially important plant extracts.
