Research

The Centre of Excellence (COE) is engaged in research and development activities in the broad areas encompassing the individual developments in, or an integration of Advanced Materials and Green Technologies based on material synthesis, material characterization, material modification, and innovative methodologies of application. The four main focus areas proposed in the research activities of the Center are Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites for Green Applications, Environmental and Biological Sensors, Bio-inspired Materials for Green Applications and Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Development. There is a significant overlap between these four focus areas due to the interdisciplinary nature of most of the projects. The Centre aims to study the physicochemical interactions of materials in various environments and engineer novel materials for suitable applications in these environments. The research activities of the Center encompass considerations of sustainability, advanced technological developments, basic research, industrial involvement, medical needs, ethical considerations, and governmental regulations.
