Ph. D. (Tech) RESEARCH TOPIC:Studies on Cottonseed products having potential therapeutic value


  1. Protein Separation: After gossypol and oil extraction kernel was treated, and separated high quality protein by precipitation techniques which is suitable for human food protein supplement as well as for use in poultry and fish feed.
  2. 2. Amino Acid Purification by Column Chromatography: Meal protein was hydrolyzed by acid hydrolysis and the arginine (Amino acid) purified up to (99%) by Ion Exchange column chromatography method for its therapeutic use. Different chromatography methods tried for the purification of amino acids like Reversed phase chromatography, Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography, Affinity Chromatography, Ion exchange Chromatography.
  3. 3. Chromatography Modeling: The optimized data obtained by above chromatography method were run over freundlich and Langmuir models and match model was selected.
  4. 4. Extraction & Refining: Oil has been extracted from cottonseed by mixed solvent in such way that gossypol and oil were separated. Oil was refined and the gossypol was extracted and purified (99%) from soap stock.
  5. 5. Extraction & Crystallization: Gossypol has been extracted by aqueous acetone from the seed kernels and purified by crystallization process to a state (99%) for its therapeutic and other uses. The oil from the marc was extracted by hexane and the meal was utilized for protein extraction
