Pesticide residue in food and environment in Lao PDR

ISP support to at the Department of Chemistry, National University of Laos (NUOL), Vientiane, started in 2005, to the common research group IPICS LAO:01, but was from 2006 to 2011 separately directed to two groups LAO:02 and LAO:03. From 2012 the groups were again merged in LAO:01. Since 2011, the support is provided using the Stockholm University contribution to ISP. The activities are coordinated by Dr Kesiny Phomkeona.

Objectives

The group aims to continue the research activities on pesticide residues analysis and to conduct further comprehensive testing of pesticide residues in producing food such as vegetables and fruits, and grains in Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR. The group also aims to develop the methodology on pesticide residues analysis and enhance the analytical technique and skills of the chemistry department staffs and students in performing the determination on pesticide residues.

Analysis of bioactive compounds in natural products

ISP support to this research group at the Department of Chemistry, National University of Laos (NUOL), Vientiane, started in 2020. The activities are coordinated by Dr. Phengxay Deevanhxay.

Objectives

The group aims to:

  • Enhance research capacity on natural products in Laos.
  • Evaluate the biological activity of medicinal plants, by analysis of bioactive compounds in the investigated plants
  • To develop the necessary local competence in order to conduct research and provide useful information and relevant data to the private/governmental agencies regarding the utilization of plant resources.
