Our group mainly focuses the target on the advanced nanomaterials for smart technology. The investigation is carried out using various materials such as soft materials (amphiphiles, block copolymers, and dendrimers), carbon materials (fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, carbon microcoils, graphenes and carbon nanohorns), nanoparticles (metal and metal oxide particles) and mineral materials (clays and porous materials). Such materials can be incorporated as components in the fabrication of functional hybrid and composite systems (nanoarchitecture). Thus prepared hybrids/composites are built up into systems, devices, and sensors, which are applicable to energy, photonics, environmental and biomedical sciences. Present projects are focused on (1) development of validated systems for energy production and storage, (2) architecting of advanced systems for air pollutant removal and decomposition and (3) fabrication of nanobiotechnological systems for inspection and therapy.
