Brief Statement of Research Interest
Synthesis of Metal Stabilized nanoparticles / legends and their sensitivity towards detection of toxic metals, pharmaceuticals in drinking water; ability of nanoparticles/legends towards detection of toxic metals in human blood plasma.The selective optical sensing strategy has been striking due to its ultra-sensitivity, rapid response, non-destructive nature and cost-effective.
