Dr Martin Boland is a lecturer in Chemistry at Charles Darwin University. His areas of research have involved making plastic stabilisers by the tonne; synthesizing research drug molecules in milligram quantities; studying protein-membrane interactions using solid-state NMR and the Platypus neutron reflectometer at ANSTO, and various other projects related to pharmaceutical and biological chemistry.
Many compounds that could assist in the treatment of illnesses, such as cancer, exist in the natural environment. Unfortunately, traditional techniques can only uncover a limited number of compounds at a time. Dr Martin Boland will present on how the use of CDU’s newly purchased high-performance, liquid chromatography-quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometers, could enable […]
