We are a group of young, dedicated researchers determined to excel in our research. Our laboratory at present is located in Saharanpur Campus of IIT Roorkee. Soon we will be moving to Chemistry Department at Roorkee campus. Our research is mainly focused on functional materials and their applications in various fields. We are a multi-disciplinary research group with group members having background ranging from chemistry, biotechnology, paper technology to polymer science and technology.Our group is focusing on three major research projects:
(1)Low dimensional hybrid hierarchical nanoporous materials for environmental applications
(2)Inorganic-Organic hybrid materials for CO2 capture Here in we are focusing in synthesizing the phosphorous and silicon incorporated inorganic-organic nanoporous hybrid materials using condensation reaction method. These materials can be used for the storage of methane, hydrogen and carbon dioxide.
(3) Fabrication of chemi-bioactive paper for photocatalytic and antibacterial applications The main focus of this research is to fabricated the papers decorated with metal/metal oxide nanoparticles or biomolecules which can be used for the degradation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in the environment and also be used for the detection and deactivation of bacteria or fungus.
