Research Areas

The research activities of my group are as follows:
  • Tailor-made functional polymers and  elastomers via controlled polymerization and “Click” reactions.
    Smart self-healing, self-cleaning, super-hydrophobic, Shape-memory polymer materials
    Block, graft, brush-like, multi-armed star copolymers, bio-active functional polymers  and their composites based on polystyrene, polyacrylates and polyurethanes.
    Stimuli-responsive polymers, polyzwitterionic gels for bio-applications.
    Green & sustainable materials and process ((Ionic liquid as additive & solvent. synthesis of polymers / bio-elastomers from bio-feedstock, like glycopolymer, polymyrcene etc.)
    No Record Found.
