RESEARCH INTERESTS

  • Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) for the degradation of Environmental Pollutants: AOPs make use of the involvement of a highly oxidizing species like hydroxyl radical and its subsequent oxidative degradation reaction with organic water pollutants (mainly triazines, endosulfan derivatives and substituted phenols). Ultrasound, photolysis and radiolysis are generally being used.
  • Development of nanomembrane based Environmental Sensors for pollutants: Nanomembrane fabricated from biopolymers that have intrinsic fluorescence can sense air pollutants such as hydrogen peroxide upto pico molar concentrations. Ovalbumin immobilized nanomembranes is too promising in sensing mercury and nitro compounds as well.
  • Membrane technology for water purification: Multilayer nano-membranes (biodegradable synthetic membranes) are prepared using polyelectrolytes. Textile and papermill effluents can be treated with such membranes for removing color and COD. This is expected as a superior technology compared conventional methods.
  • Cloud mimic reactions on degradation of pollutants: Iron complexes (ferric hydroxyl complexes) on sunlight irradiation can produce the powerful oxidizing radical (hydroxyl radicals) in clouds. This may lead to the degradation of many organic pollutants in the atmosphere. Similar reactions are mimicked in the laboratory.
  • Radiation and Photo- induced modifications of DNA and related compounds: The genetic material, DNA, undergoes constant damages due to both internal and external factors. It undergoes nearly 10,000 damages in human body every day. Radiation induced damages are due to direct deposition of energy and to indirect effect from water derived free radicals. We investigate the damage induced by both low LET and high LET radiation using steady state and pulse radiolysis techniques. Photochemical changes are also being studied. Charge transport in DNA is another important phenomena which is extensively being investigated in our group using Femtosecond spectroscopy.
  • Computer based theoretical calculations for free radical reactions: A great deal of information on the probable reaction sites and energy channels in the free radical chemistry of organic compounds can be obtained using Density Functional Theory (DFT) based theoretical calculations. The DFT calculations are carried out with Gaussian 03 suite of programs by employing B3LYP method using the 6-31+G(d,p) basis set.

Experimental tools:

  • Pulse radiolysis, Laser flash photolysis, Time-resolved spectroscopy, Steady state radiolysis and photolysis, HPLC and other chromatographic techniques, UV-VIS spectrometry, GC-MS, LC-MS, Highcomputing systems etc.
