Research

Dr. Msimanga’s research focuses on the applications of multivariate analysis techniques to develop calibration matrices for analyzing complex mixtures (medicinal drugs). He also uses chemometrics to discern very similar traces (spectra, voltammograms, and chromatograms) where instrument limitations occur. His other area of research involves studying the chemical composition of plant medicines whose chemical composition is not well known. Most of the research is done with undergraduate students.
