Track 1 : Natural Products Chemistry
Natural products are naturally occurring substances that are used to restore or maintain good health. They are often made from plants, animals, microorganisms and marine sources. They come in a wide variety of forms like tablets, capsules, tinctures, solutions, creams, ointments and drops. Natural products are used and marketed for a number of health reasons, like the prevention or treatment of an illness or condition, the reduction of health risks, or the maintenance of good health. They must be safe to be used as over-the-counter products. Chemistry needing a prescription are regulated as drugs. Natural Products are used for various purpose like skin and hair care, dietary supplement, baby care, herbal and organic products.
Track 2 : Natural Products
Natural products (secondary metabolites) have been the most successful source of leads for potential drug discovery. Natural products have been well documented for their medicinal uses for thousands of years. Plants have evolved and adapted over millions of years to withstand bacteria, insects, fungi and weather to produce unique, structurally diverse secondary metabolites. Their ethno pharmacological properties have been used as a primary source of medicines for early drug discovery. Macro and micro fungi have been part of human life for thousands of years. They were used as food (mushrooms), in preparation of alcoholic beverages (yeasts), medication in traditional medicine and for cultural purposes.
Track 3 : Pharmacognosy & Phytochemistry
The branch of Science concerned with medicinal drugs obtained from plants or other natural sources Pharmacognosy is in the strict feeling of the word came after investigation of phytochemicals. A significant number of these are known not security against bug assaults and plant ailments. They additionally show various defensive capacities for human purchasers. Phytochemistry can be considered sub-fields of Botany or Chemistry. Exercises can be driven in natural greenery enclosures or in the wild with the guide of Ethnobotany. The uses of the order can be for Pharmacognosy, or the disclosure of new medications or as a guide for plant physiology contemplates. Phytochemical procedure mostly applies to the quality control of Chinese solution, medicinal plants (Indian conventional drug) or home grown prescription of different concoction segments, for example, saponins, alkaloids, unpredictable oils, flavonoids and glycosides.

Various types of mass spectrometers are being used in an increasing number of clinical laboratories around the world, and, as a result, significant improvements in assay performance are occurring rapidly in areas such as toxicology, endocrinology, and biochemical markers. This review serves as a basic introduction to mass spectrometry, its uses, and associated challenges in the clinical laboratory and ends with a brief discussion of newer methods with the greatest potential for Clinical and Diagnostic Research.
Track 5 : Chromatography
Chromatography plays an important role in many pharmaceutical industries and also in the chemical and food industry. Environmental testing laboratories generally wants to identify for very small quantities of contaminants such as PCBs in waste oil, and pesticides. The Environmental Protection Agency makes the method of chromatography to test drinking water and to monitor air quality. Pharmaceutical industries use this method both to prepare huge quantities of extremely pure materials, and also to analyze the purified compounds for trace contaminants. These separation techniques like chromatography gain importance in different kinds of companies, different departments like Fuel Industry, biotechnology, biochemical processes, and forensic science.
Track 6 : Natural Products Research
The investigation of biological and chemical properties of natural products for the past two centuries has not only produced drugs for the treatment of several diseases, but has instigated the development of synthetic organic chemistry and the arrival of medicinal chemistry as a major route to discover efficacious and novel therapeutic agents. Structural alteration of natural compounds or synthesis of novel compounds, based on designs following a natural compound scaffolding, have offered us a lot of vital new drugs in the fields of medicine, agriculture, and food spheres. Nature has provided a fascinating array of chemical structures in the form of bioactive secondary metabolites.
Track 7 : Natural Products Drug Discovery
Classical natural product chemistry methodologies enabled a vast array of bioactive secondary metabolites from terrestrial and marine sources to be discovered. Many of these natural products have gone on to become current drug candidates. An advance in technology and sensitive instrumentation for the rapid identification of novel bioactive natural products and structure elucidation continues to improve the natural product discovery process. Chemistry has indeed revolutionized the development of novel active chemical leads resulting in the synthesis of structural analogues. Natural products constitute a key source of pharmacologically active ingredients in a variety of novel agents with therapeutic potential in a wide range of diseases. Pharmaceuticals containing natural products or compounds derived from natural product scaffolds or templates have to undergo the same stringent approval process as drugs obtained from purely synthetic origin.
Track 8 : Natural Products Research to Medicine
The valuable medicinal properties of different plants are due to presence of several constituents i.e. saponines, tannins, alkaloids, alkenyl phenols, glycoalkaloids, flavonoids, sesquiterpenes lactones, terpenoids and phorbol esters. Among them some are act as synergistic and enhance the bioactivity of other compounds. Natural products (and conventional medicines) offer great anticipation in the identification of bioactive compounds and their development into drugs for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. Previously, the plant-derived medicines were dispensed in the form of crude drugs like tinctures, teas, powders, poultices, and other herbal preparations. This eventually serves as the basis of the current modern drug discovery.
Agricultural Chemistry is the combination of scientific tools and techniques including genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, vaccines, and tissue culture to modify agricultural productivity, quality, diversity and species protection. Agricultural Biotechnology is developed to cope up with current challenges which are usually cannot be solved by traditional practices. Agricultural Biotechnology also helps in climate adaptation, stress management and disease management. Biotechnology has introduced modern technologies to deal with the global food crisis.
Track 10 : Phytomedicine
The branch of chemistry dealing with the chemical processes associated with plant life and the chemical compounds produced by plants Phytochemistry is in the strict sense of the word the study of phytochemicals. Phytochemistry can be considered sub-fields of Botany or Chemistry. Activities can be led in botanical gardens or in the wild with the aid of Ethnobotany mainly applies to the quality control of Chinese medicine, Aromatic Plants (Indian traditional medicine) or herbal medicine of various chemical components, such as saponins, alkaloids, volatile oils, flavonoids and anthraquinones. In the development of rapid and reproducible analytical techniques, the combination of HPLC with different detectors, such as diode array detector (DAD), refractive index detector (RID), evaporative light scattering detector (ELSD) and mass spectrometric detector (MSD), has been widely developed.
Track 11 : Natural Products and Heterocyclic Chemistry
Natural products are chemical compound produced by a living organism that is found in nature. Natural products remain the best sources of drugs and drug leads, natural products research in favor of HTP screening of combinatorial libraries during the past 2 decades. Natural products possess structural and chemical diversity that is unsurpassed by any synthetic libraries. More than 40% of the chemical scaffolds found in natural products are absent in now-a-days medicinal chemistry repertoire. Based on various chemical properties, combinatorial compounds occupy a much smaller area in molecular space than natural products. Medicinal Chemistry undergoes primary metabolites and secondary metabolites, Natural products under go biosynthesis and produce carbohydrates and fatty acids and polyketides.
Biologically Active Natural Products have been proven to be a profound resource on the development of natural product chemistry and upon the medical sciences. The improvement of natural products-based screening, rather than relying on synthetic sources, has been the aim of current pharmaceutical research and development. Alternative strategies to consider include the identification of potential new antibiotics from commercial crude bacterial fermentations. Recent research progresses reported that many bioactive natural products from marine invertebrates have striking similarities to metabolites of their associated microorganisms including bacteria. Compared with terrestrial organisms, the secondary metabolites produced by marine organisms have more novel and unique structures owing to the complex living circumstance and diversity of species, and the bioactivities are much stronger.
Track 13 : Herbal Drugs
The study or use of medicinal herbs to prevent and treat diseases and ailments or to promote health and healing. Herbal medicine is also called as Botanicals, Phytotherapy. A growing field with a long tradition. It is the oldest and most widely used system of medicine in the world today. It is used in all societies and is common to all cultures. The art or practice of using herbs and herbal remedies to maintain health and to prevent, alleviate, or cure disease—called also herbalism. They are used for treating anxiety, depression, Healing, ache and many more. There are different types of herbs like Anti Inflammatory Herbs, Smoking Herbs, Fertility Herbs, Adoptogenic herbs, Healing Herbs. There are also different types of herbal products used in various forms some of them are Herbal Tea, Herbal Hair Products, Herbal Cigarettes, Herbal Antibiotics, and Herbal Toothpastes.
Track 14 : Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis
Catalysis is the expansion in the rate of a synthetic response because of the cooperation of an extra substance called a catalyst. As a rule, responses happen speedier with a catalyst since they require less enactment vitality. Moreover since they are not expended in the catalyzed response, impetuses can keep on acting over and over. Frequently organic catalysis just little sums are required on a basic level. A portion of the biggest scale chemicals are delivered by means of reactant oxidation, frequently utilizing oxygen. Cases incorporate nitric corrosive (from alkali), sulfuric corrosive (from sulfur dioxide to sulfur trioxide by the load procedure), terephthalic corrosive from p-xylene, and acrylonitrilefrom propane and smelling salts.
Track 15 : Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Synthesis
Medicinal chemistry deals with development and synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs. The discipline combines expertise from chemistry and pharmacology to identify the lead molecule called as pharmacophore, development and synthesize chemical agents that have a therapeutic use and to evaluate the properties of drugs. Enantioselective synthesis, also called chiral synthesis and asymmetric synthesis is a multidisciplinary form of chemical synthesis. Enantioselective catalysis known traditionally as asymmetric catalysis refers to the use of chiral coordination complexes as catalysts. This approach is very commonly encountered, as it is effective for a broader range of transformations than any other method of enantioselective synthesis. Synthetic organic chemists and medicinal chemists have the power to replicate some of the most intriguing molecules of living nature in the laboratory and apply their developed synthetic strategies and technologies to construct variations of them
Track 16 : Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry
Bioorganic chemistry is a rapidly growing scientific discipline that combines organic chemistry and biochemistry. While biochemistry aims at understanding biological processes using chemistry, bioorganic chemistry attempts to expand organic-chemical researches (that is, structures, synthesis, and pharmacokinetics toward medical biology. When investigating metalloenzymes and cofactors, bioorganic chemistry overlaps bioinorganic chemistry. Biophysical organic chemistry is a term used when attempting to describe intimate details of molecular recognition by bioorganic chemistry.
Track 17 : Marine Drugs
A branch of pharmacology worried with pharmacologically dynamic substances display in sea-going plants and creatures; its goal is to discover and grow new helpful agents, Over 70% of the world's surface is secured by seas which contain 95% of the world's biosphere. Research typically focuses on sessile organisms or slow moving animals because of their inherent need for chemical defenses. Standard research involves an extraction of the organism in a suitable solvent followed by either an assay of this crude extract for a particular disease target or a rationally guided isolation of new chemical compounds using standard chromatography techniques. The traditional Western Pharmacognosy focused on the investigation and identification of medically important plants and animals in the terrestrial environment, although many marine organisms were used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, some chemists turned to more pioneering work looking for new medicines in the marine environment. In the United States, the road has been long for the first FDA approval of a drug directly from the sea, but in 2004, the approval of ziconotide isolated from a marine cone snail has paved the way for other marine-derived compounds moving through clinical trials.
Natural products play an important role in drug discovery. About more than 50 percent of FDA-approved drugs were Natural products or natural products derivatives. For thousands of year’s natural products have played a very important role in health care and prevention of diseases. It is estimated that about 70% of the supply of herbal raw material for Ayurveda and other homeopathic medicines in India comes from the wild. To meet the increasing demand for raw material, to conserve wild resources, and to reduce the potential variability in the active ingredient content in medicinal plants from different collection areas, it is important to implement more controlled cultivation programs to ensure quality and to protect resources.
The global market for botanical and plant-derived drugs was valued at $23.2 billion in 2013 and $24.4 billion in 2014. This total market is expected to reach $25.6 billion in 2015 and nearly $35.4 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% from 2015 to 2020.
Natural products sometimes have pharmacological or biological activity that can be of therapeutic benefit in treating diseases. As such, natural products are the active components not only of most traditional medicines but also many modern medicines. Furthermore, because the structural diversity of natural products exceeds that readily achievable by chemical synthesis, and synthetic analogs can be prepared with improved potency and safety, natural products are often used as starting points for drug discovery. In fact, natural products are the inspiration for approximately one half of U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs.
