Das’s research focuses on nantotechnology innovations for future energy, electronics, food packaging, different rubber products including tire, cable etc. His interdisciplinary research program integrates nanomaterials synthesis including carbon nanotubes, nanowires, nanoparticles etc., characterization, processing and applications. His recent research activities include synthesizing nanocomposites, thermoplastics elastomers and fabricating flexible sensors, transistors. He is also working on conductive polymer nanocomposites, rheology/morphology and phase behavior of polymer blends, and developing novel techniques in-situ small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and neutron scattering (SANS) on polymer/nanomaterials/protein/virous, etc.
. Dr. Das has published more than 150 papers in international referred journals, 45 conference papers and 01 books on nanomaterials and their nanocomposites. He has guided 10 PhD students and 19 Master students. Currently 12 PhD students, 4 M.Tech students are working in his group.
Few technological major areas are:
- Development of new generation tire compounds
-Nanocomposites for food packaging, radiation absorbing, sensors, membrane, medical and energy storage applicaitons.
-Smart textile materials for microwave/X-ray absorbing applications.
-Recycle of waste rubber: extraction of oil and carbon black
-TPE/TPV based EMI shielding materials for automatice and aerospace applications.
