He is now working as Emeritus Scientist after retiring as Prircipal Scientist from the Division of Agricultural Chemicals. IARI. New Delhi. Dr. Singh s main research interest is in chemistry of natural products including essential and fixed oils. At the institute, in the Division of Agricultural Chemicals, he was actively involved for twenty-three years in research and teaching of Botanical Pesticides and guided students of M.Sc. and Ph.D. Dr. Singh has vast experience in natural and synthetic pesticides including isolation, characterization, synthesis and analysis of both phytochemicals and pesticides. He has developed pesticidal potential compounds from several Indian plants of economic importance. He has also synthesised several fatty acid semithiocarbazide fungicides effective against blast disease of rice caused by the fungus Pyricularia ryzea. His contribution to work out glyceride structure studies of several rare oil seeds has been significant. Dr. Singh has published more than 50 original research papers in various national and international journals of repute, some book chapters and also presented research papers in various seminars and symposia. He is winner of M/s Uttam Chand Jam Memorial Silver Medal Award and a certificate of merit for the paper published in Indian Perfumer in 1982, a reputed journal of Essential Oil Association of India.
