Landmark Research Contribution
Organophillic nanoclays from Indian bentonite have been developed by his group, is being validated for real-life application with industrial collaboration. He also made significant contribution to the understanding of phase and microstructural evolution in fly-ash and Slag - incorporated K2O-SiO2-Al2O3 system.
