  • Landmark Research Contribution
    • Preparation of alumina disc shaped membrane for microfiltration application for laboratory use
    • Synthesis of different type of nano powders by hydrothermal and sonochemical technique
    • Preparation of crack free zeolite membrane coating on 25 mm disc for gas separation application.
    • Ten years teaching experience in the area of Industrial chemistry in Bhowbanipur Education society College in Calcutta University.

Research Interest

Materials science and engineering with special reference to ceramic membrane. ( specially Inorganic membrane like alumina and zeolite membranes). Nano powders preparation by sonochemical, hydrothermal, microemulsion etc methods and their processing by tape casting, hydrothermal coating, sol �gel coating are the area of interests. Clean energy related area like production of hydrogen and storage of hydrogen are the newer area of interest.
