About Us

Since the inception of the Amity Institute of Phytochemistry & Phytomedicine (AIP&P) in the year 2010, the institute has been striving hard to provide innovative solutions for some pressing problems of society. AIP&P being a research and innovation driven institute, it has developed several indigenous technologies focussing on societal benefit like Biodegradable Plastic, Vegetarian Capsules, Herbal Shampoo, Herbal Hair Dye, Herbal Hair Colour, Herbal Sunscreen, Self Defence Spray, Cling Films, Anti-Diarrheal Formulation etc.

The core research areas of the Institute are Natural Product Chemistry, Phytoformulations, Applied Carbohydrate Chemistry, Drug Discovery, Medicinal & Synthetic Chemistry.

Currently the institute is running Ph.D. Programme (Full and Part time) in Natural Product Research. 

Additionally, students of U.G. and P.G. have completed their dissertation work covering different aspects of Natural Product and applied Carbohydrate Chemistry as follows:

  1. Characterization of certain biopolymers used in targeted drug delivery 
  2. Natural Polymer Based Biodegradable Plastic 
  3. Extraction, isolation, and Formulation of Mucuna pruriens and Berberis aristata 
  4. Natural Polymer in Drug Delivery 
  5. Phytochemical Investigation on High Altitude Medicinal Plants 
  6. Extraction, Purification, and formulation of Medicinal Plants 
  7. Natural Polymer Based Cling Films for Food Packaging 
  8. Biocomposites from Natural Resources 
  9. Study of Different Medicinal Plants by Bioactivity Guided Fractionation 
  10. Phytochemical Screening of Medicinal Plants having High Therapeutic Value 
  11. Extraction of Colors from Natural Sources for Cosmetic Use 
  12. Assessment of Antioxidant and Antimicrobial properties of Different extracts of high-altitude Medicinal Plants 
  13. Different Formulation of Lesser Utilized Fraction of Selected Medicinal Plants
