Ph.D. Thesis Adjudication

Ph.D thesis submitted to Andhra University, Vishakhapatnam and Mysore University were adjudicated.

Polymer based carrier for separation and bio medical applications
In this area, my lab is focused on the development of various natural polymer matrices and their composites with metal and metal oxide especially in the form of films, micro and nanoparticles. These developed film shape matrices were tested for their ability in separating aqueous azeotropic mixtures using membrane based pervaporation technique. Polymer and composite fabricated in the form of beads, gels, and particles were used as carrier in delivering various drugs and bio molecules. In addition, composite materials were also tested for their catalytic and anti microbial activity.
CNT based dye sensitized solar cells
We are focused on developing CNT based photoanode materials for use in the dye sensitized solar cells using ruthenium based dyes. Further, we are working on using various polymeric materials as contiguous phase in bring the developed semiconductor photoanode compiste together in the form of film using doctor blade method.
