Nanosciences and Engineering

Nanosciences and Engineering focuses on research in the areas of Supercapacitors, Heterogenous catalysis, Biosensors and Thermal interface materials. The nanocomposites of multiwalled carbon nanotubes with transition metal/s and metal oxide/hydroxides are synthesized by wet chemical process and utilized efficiently as electrode materials in supercapacitors & biosensors, catalysts supports for fine chemical synthesis and thermal interface materials.


Nanocomposites of oxides/hydroxides of Manganese (Mn), Iron (Fe), Cobalt (Co) Nickel (Ni), Ruthenium (Ru), and mixed metal oxides of Ni and Co with Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), have been successfully synthesized. The nanocomposites have been methodically characterized for their structure and morphology by appropriate analytical techniques such as powder XRD, FT-IR, SEM-EDS, TEM, BET surface area and Raman spectroscopy. The characterization results revealed the formation of spherical h-RuO2, bristles like α-MnO2 and hexagonal β-Ni(OH)2 in their nanocomposites. The electrochemical performances of these composites have been found to be enhanced in the presence of MWCNTs which has been attributed to their structural and morphological properties.

TEM images of spherical h-RuO2, bristles like α-MnO2 and hexagonal β-Ni(OH)2 nanocomposites with MWCNTs

These nanocomposites materials were investigated by different electrochemical methods such as Cyclic Voltammetry (CV), Chronopotentiometry (CP) and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) in an aqueous electrolyte using a three electrode system. The Specific Capacitance (Cs), charge-discharge cycles (life cycle test), columbic efficiency, capacitance retention, energy density, power densities of these nanocomposites have been evaluated.

It is interesting to note that Ni(OH)2/MWCNTs, h.RuO2/MWCNTs and MnO2/MWCNTs exhibit exceptional electrochemical performance. Further, asymmetric supercapacitor devices are fabricated separately using these nanocomposites as positive electrode and inexpensive activated carbon, functionalized MWCNTs and KOH activated carbon derived from biomass as negative electrode.

Applications of fabricated asymmetric supercapacitors

It has been observed that carbon from biomass exhibited superior electrochemical capacitance, compared to other conventional carbon materials, which have been used as negative electrode. As an extension of this work, low cost biomass such as banana fibre, extract of Pongamia pinnata oil seeds are carbonized, activated and efficiently developed and used as negative electrode materials in asymmetric supercapacitor devices.

“GREEN” carbon derived from Hemp – Cannabis sativa – nanosheets topple expensive graphene for supercapacitors.

In recent developments with respect to energy storage devices especially supercapacitors, involves developing electrode materials that are easy to synthesize, cheaper, and hold as much energy as traditional graphene-based devices — graphene being the current gold standard in the industry. Among biomass, Hemp-Cannabis sativa has gained attention as it turns out that electrodes made from hemp-based carbon nanosheets produce supercapacitors that outperform commercial ones in both energy density and wide operating temperatures. Carbon derived from hemp fiber is used as electrode materials post chemical activation process. The activation process aids in tailoring surface properties such as surface area, porosity, pore volume etc. The activated “GREEN” carbons electrochemical properties are investigated in three electrode system prior to device fabrication. The devices are fabricated in forms of coin cell and are tested for their performance.

Flexible solid state supercapacitors

Flexible solid-state supercapacitors are of considerable interest as mobile power supply for future flexible electronics because they can provide substantially higher specific/volumetric energy density compared to conventional capacitors. Additionally, flexible solid-state SCs are typically small in size, highly reliable, light-weight, easy to handle, and have a wide range of operation temperatures. In this regard, solid-state SCs hold great promise as new energy storage devices for flexible and wearable electronics compared with the SCs using liquid electrolyte.

Based on the results of our previous studies made on development of electrode materials for supercapacitors, especially mixed metal oxides of Ni, Co & Mn with MWCNTs nanocomposites have be narrowed down for fabrication of flexible solid state supercapacitors. Developing high performance flexible solid state devices for different applications in portable electronics.

Heterogeneous Catalysis 

Development of solid, acid–base or redox catalysts for organic transformations or synthesis of organic fine chemicals under environmentally benign conditions is one of the active fields of research in heterogeneous catalysis. A number of bulk and fine chemicals are manufactured using heterogeneous catalysts such as metals, metal oxides, zeolites, clays etc. The metals/metal oxides are used either in their native form or very often supported on an inert material.

Currently, carbon nanotubes and mesoporous carbon are being developed as new environmental benign supports for solid catalysts and are applied in the synthesis of organic fine chemicals via Amidation, Hydrogenation and Esterifications. The organic fine chemicals are derived from these reactions and are industrially important. They find their applications in polymer, agrochemicals, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Mutiwalled carbon nanotubes and Mesoporous carbon have been successfully modified by anions (Sulphate, Borate and phosphate) and different transition metal/metal oxide deposition. These materials are characterized for their structure and morphology by different analytical techniques like powder XRD, XPS, FT-IR, SEM-EDS, TEM, BET surface area method.The characterization results reveal successful modification of anions and uniform deposition of transition metal/metal oxides.

SEM and TEM images of Synthesized Nanocomposites

Sulphate anion modified MWCNTs (S-MWCNTs) have been explored as good recyclable catalyst for esterification of benzyl alcohol and acetic acid. Similarly, S-MWCNTs catalyst has been found to be selective catalyst for the preparation of monoester i.e. Benzyl ethylmalonate. Cu2O nanoparticles deposited on MWCNTs are found to be good and recyclable catalyst for the synthesis of a wide variety of amide derivates via oxidative amidation reactions. Bimetallic catalysts of Cu with1% Ru supported on MWCNTand MC has beenfound to be selective catalyst in the hydrogenation of α, β-unsaturated aldehydes and reduction of aromatic nitro compounds. The catalysts has given yield of the expected product and found be recyclable.


Conductive Ink

Conductive ink is an ink that results in a printed object which conducts electricity. It is typically created by infusing conductive materials into ink. Conductive ink has a variety of applications in the market of photovoltaics, touch screen edge electrodes, automotive, in-mound electronics, Electronic textile and wearable electronics, 3D antennas and conformal printing, EMI Shielding, 3D printed electronics, ITO replacement (hybrid, direct printing, etc), printed piezo resistive, capacitive and bio sensors, PCB (DIY/hobbyist, professional, seed-and-plate), RFID (HF, UHF), printed TFT and memory, OLED and large-area LED lighting, flexible e-readers, reflective displays, large-area heaters (battery, plant, seat, etc.) and more. Efforts are underway to develop means to produce such inks at affordable cost.

Thermal interface materials

Nanofluids of MWCNTs with transition metals /metal oxides with appropriate base fluids have been developed as thermal interface materials. These thermal interface materials are inserted between heat producing device and heat dissipating device (Heat sink) for efficient heat transfer in heat sinks. The enhanced heat transfer observed is due to unique properties of nanoparticles dispersed in the base fluids. Further, these nanofluids were effectively used in LED’s, electronic cooling systems and heat exchangers.
