Research

Our research aims to exploit emerging and thrust areas of nanosciences, catalysis and coordination polymers. The intention is to develop functionalized  materials with potential applications at the interface of chemistry, engineering and biology. Our route is mainly through solution phase. Nanoparticles of noble metals like gold, silver, platinum and other transition  metals such as palladium, titanium, vanadium, molybdenum are being exploited for organic catalysis, hydrogels, solar cells,  LED applications etc. Self and directed assembly of inorganic and organic materials has been explored to develop these functional materials.  We are equally involved in studying metal-biomolecule interactions and development of functional materials derived from them.

 

 


Our research areas may be broadly classified into:

  • Nanoparticles mediated catalysis 

  • Inorganic nanoparticle enzyme composites

  • Coordination polymers and hydrogels

  • Functionalized materials based on carbon structures

  • Nanoparticles as in-vitro and in-vivo contrast agents
