Nanocatalysis : Energy production and Energy storage

Nanoscopically designed graphene based precious and non-precious metal electrocatalysts are being explored for energy production reactions such as Oxygen evolution, Oxygen reduction and hydrogen evolution etc., CO2 reduction for fuel generation is being explored for higher electrochemical efficiency operations.

Nanotheranostics : Multifunctional Nanodesign for targetted, bioresponsive delivery, combined chemo-photothermal therapy and biomedical imaging

Multifunctional Nanomaterials systems for combined therapeutics and multimodal diagnostics are being designed and explored for in-vitro and in-vivo studies for theranostic applications. Gold Nanorods, Mesoporous silica nanoparticles, Graphene nanoflakes, Carbon-quantum-dots, Liposomes are few of the components used in designed these multifunctional materials. Bioresponsive nanogates are designed with biomolecules and graphene quantum dots for targetted safe delivery of anticancer drugs. || More reading :>> Bioconjug Chem 2018, 19;29(5):1510 ; DOI: 10.1021/acs.bioconjchem.7b00801 || Nanoscale, 2016, 8, 4537 ; DOI: 10.1039/c5nr06756a ||

Functional nanocomposites for Biomedical applications

3D scaffolds designed with engineered nanocarbon hydrogel structures along with artificial bone like minerals are investigated for bone tissue engineering. A recent addition is high load bearing bioactive glasses for bone crafts and fillers. Materials synthesis, structure-property correlations along with in-vitro and in-vivo studies are carriedout for possible patenting and further exploitation. || Biomaterials, 2018 (under print) ; Carbon, 2018 (under review) ||

First principle based computational research

Various experimental research carried at NCML group are complemented with computational research tools for molecular level insight. Nanocatalytic systems for energy production such as hydrogen evolution, oxygen evolution, oxygen reduction reaction and energy storage such as nanocarbon based ultracapacotors are few examples. Host-guest interactions such as heavy or radio active elements adsorption by calixarenes, alkali ion interactions with micro and mesoporous silica, zeolites etc., are some other examples.
