Research Interests

Synthesis of metal and metal oxide nanoparticles for catalytic and biomedical applications. Catalytic applications of nanoparticles  include degradation of pesticides and various organic pollutants which are present in industrial waste effluents. Biomedical applications of nanoparticles include engineering the surface of nanoparticles via conjugation with drugs or receptors or antagonists to deliver them to target sites. Encapsulation of model drugs or model dyes is also a key area for the research for optimising the sustained release of drugs and dyes.
