Current research interests of Dr. Amarjit Singh Sarpal
Presently, he is extensively involved in revealing the compositional aspects of algal/yeast oils cultivated by potential microalgae species by the application of analytical techniques (NMR, IR, MS, GC-MS, ICAP), especially by multipulse high field NMR spectroscopic techniques, at Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (INMTRO), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil . Newly developed direct and convenient methods based on NMR spectroscopic techniques have proved cost effective and rapid analytical tools for the screening of microalgae species/strains for the enhancement of biomasss and neutral lipid productivity, and monitoring cultivation process for biodiesel and nutritional potential. He has developed a ultrasonic extraction method for the efficient extraction of neutral lipids (Triglycerides), which are potential feed stocks for biodiesel production.The detailed component analyses of algal oils, obtained by ultrasonic solvent extraction, such as neutral (mono, di and triglycerides; free fatty acids) and polar (glyceroglyco/phospho) lipids, and their fatty acid profile including n-3 PUFAs (C18:3, C20:5, C22:6) have enabled to explore their biodiesel potential and quality aspects meeting ASTM 6751 specification. The results revealed that biomass and neutral lipids productivity as well as quality and composition of saturated and unsaturated fatty acid were influenced by nutrient media, microalgae species/strains, source of light and shape of the cultivated system. The developed fast and cost effective analytical strategy based on NMR techniques will facilitate algae cultivators for screening of species and optimization of cultivation parameters to produce a choice of product, biodiesel or nutritional supplement, thus contribute partly in the overall reduction in the cost of production of biodiesel. The microalgae species Chlorella, Scenedesmus, Tetrtaselmis and Spirulina are being studied for enhancement of neutral lipid productivity by utilizing cheaper sources of nutrients.
Analytical strategies integrated with environmental pollution control and co-product development - a cost effective options for biodiesel production from microalgae.
The biodiesel production from microalgae is not cost effective due to energy and infrastructure intensive steps involved in the cultivation, harvesting and oil extraction processes. Higher cost of biodiesel production from microalgae can be more environmentally sustainable, cost-effective, and profitable if combined with processes such as wastewater and flue gas treatment, and pollution control including biological fixation of GHG (CO2 and NOx). The cost can further be reduced by successful development and commercialization of high-value co-products, polymers or pigments, proteins, food supplements EPA/DHA rich oils, and other useful nutraceuticals. Analytical strategies based on NMR developed methods are direct, rapid, cost effective, requires minimum quantity of sample (5 mg of algal oil), and involve concept of green chemistry as analyses is carried out without subjecting to transesterification of microalgae biomasses. The detailed composition of neutral and polar lipids including fatty acid profiles and PUFA can be obtained from a single 1H NMR spectral analyses. The newly developed NMR methods can also be standardized for serial analyses of number of lipid extracts from large number of algae biomasses by the use of auto sampler in the same way as practiced by GC-FID or GC-MS methods, thus contributing immensely in reducing the cost of analyses compared to other techniques. The analyses by NMR methods offer sufficient scope and advantages in situations when large number of samples are generated from various cultivation processes such as kinetic studies, effect of variation in the composition of nutrient media on the lipid productivities, altering the biosynthesis pathways through genetic modification, selection of species or strains for enhancement in the neutral lipid productivities and quality aspects for meeting biodiesel specification or achieving objectives for enhancement of yield of n-3 PUFA products. The developed fast and cost effective analytical strategy will facilitate algae cultivators for screening of species and optimization of cultivation parameters to produce choice of product, thus contribute partly in the overall reduction in the cost of production of biodiesel.

Biodiesel potential of oleaginous Yeast biomass by NMR Spectroscopic Techniques
The study highlight and offer a great scope for the utilisation of commercial grade glycerine, a by-product of transesterification reaction, for the production of biodiesel. Analytical strategies based on NMR (1H and 13C), IR and GC techniques were developed for the molecular level characterization of soxhlet and ultrasonic solvent extracts of oleaginous yeast biomass samples generated on a lab scale by different bacteria, feed and diverse culture conditions with an objective to explore biodiesel potential.The extraction efficiency of each solvent (cyclohexane, chloroform, methanol) towards extraction of neutral lipids (Total Glycerides, TG) and free fatty acids (FFA) and polar lipids have been determined and compared with regards to the nature of fatty acid components extracted in each solvent fractions. The fatty acid composition of yeast oil extracts has been found to be similar to vegetable oils, mostly rich in C16:0, 18:0 and C18:N (N=1 to 3) fatty acids as indicated by the combined NMR, GC and GC-MS analyses. The analytical protocol developed has established that 1H NMR techniques can be used directly and rapidly without any sample treatment and prior separation to determine total neutral lipid content (TG, FFA), nature of fatty acids/ester, poly unsaturated fatty esters (PUFE), iodine value etc. The results have shown the presence of C18:1 and C18:2 as the predominant unsaturated fatty acid components besides common saturated fatty acids. The content and composition of biomass has been found to be specific to types of yeast and feed (glycerin and sabouraud, 2% glucose/dextrose) used for cultivation. The NMR methods offer great potential for rapid screening of yeast for generation of yeast biomass with desired lipid content, quality and biodiesel potential and value added PUFE keeping in view of the cost economics of overall generation of the biomass. The nature of fatty acid profile, iodine value of neutral lipids in the range of 48.9 to 72.6 g I2/100 g and presence of C18:3 in the range of 1-2.0% show that yeast oils can be considered as promising potential source for the production of biodiesel meeting B100 specification.

Existing challenges and Opportunities in Analytical Chemistry and message to Global Analytical Chemistry scientists, new innovations, industries, academic institutions and Government funding policies?
Analytical sciences, particularly process analytical technology, has been playing and will continue to play a significant role for the society in terms of improvement in quality of the products and technology, safeguarding ecology and providing safe environment for the existing and future generation. Improvement of detection limits and precise detection of trace organic pollutants of different origin emitted as a result of indiscriminate industrial and human activities, waste water treatment including biofixation of CO2 and NOX, bioremediation of industrial waste, quantification of trace residues of pharmaceuticals, quality up gradation of agricultural products, especially packaged food and genomics and clinical diagnostic. More important contribution would be in the development, commercialization and process control of sustainable environmentally friendly biofuels from algae and cellulosic based biomasses keeping in view of environmental effects of bioenergy production.
