Contributions of Dr. P.D. Sethi to Pharmaceutical Analysis

Dr P. D. Sethi received his Ph.D from Madras University in Pharmacognosy. He worked towards the betterment and advancement of pharmaceutical analysis in India for more than 40 years. 

In his life he had served at many prestigious Institutes like Banaras Hindu University, Central Indian Pharmacopoeia Laboratory, Ghaziabad and Central Drug Testing Laboratory Mumbai, etc.

He was the founder and director of the Central Drugs Laboratory, worked with Federal Drugs Control Laboratory and was a National evaluator with the Dept. of Science & Technology, Govt. of India.

He has published many books on the pharmaceutical analysis of HPLC and HPTLC. His work on HPTLC has been used even today.
