  1. Processing of nanoparticles, colloids, minerals, clays, powders, and films
    One of the major trusts of our research team is to understand the synthesis-microstructure-property relationship in materials systems. We are particularly interested to design novel processing strategies for synthetic clays, nanoparticles, colloids of metal/metal oxide hetero-junctions for electronics, photochemical, and biomedical applications.
  2. Photocatalytic materials & reactor designing for decontamination of effluents
    Photochemical technology has shown great potential for waste water treatment. However, this technology has not been properly utilized due to lack of large scale reactors and short life of catalytic materials. We are trying to design hybrid nanophotocatalysts by restricting the particle agglomeration. The technology will be tested with reactor system for removal of biologically active persistent organic pollutants and pathogens from drinking water.
  3. Designing gas sensors for detection & deactivation of pollutants
    Our groups has been trying to use the gas-sensing and photocatalytic activity of metal/semiconductor systems for designing a programmable device which can work-on “sense and shoot” concept to detect and destroy a particular toxic molecule.
  4. Bio-inspired synthesis of hybrid nanomaterials for biomedical applications
    Development of green protocols for the synthesis of medically important nanostructures can induced a paradigm shift in biomedical sciences owing to their greater biocompatibility. We are trying to exploit bio-recourses for the synthesis of metallic and metal oxide nanoparticles. These nanoparticles have shown great potential as DNA and drug delivery agents.
