Effluent Treatment Laboratory

The research work carried in effluent treatment lab involves,

Removal of heavy metals by artemia species through bioaccumulation:

Bioaccumulation of heavy metals by artemia franciscana. Metallothionein protein in the species plays a special role in accumulation of the toxic heavy metals from the liquid medium. Removal efficiencies upto 95% was achieved.

Red mud based micro and nanoparticles for decolorization:

Green synthetic route using syzygiumcumini leaves was used for production of nanoparticles. The biologically prepared nanoparticles and chemically prepared nanoparticles were immobilized on beads fordye decolorization and textile industry waste water.


Reduced graphene oxide nanohybrid for lithium ion battery:

The 3D MS nanoflower distorts to an extent when embedded in reduced graphene oxide (MS/rGO) subjecting to controlled thermal annealing under H2 and CH4. This leads to the formation of a new nanohybrid composed of MC attached to MS nanoflowers embedded in a reduced graphene oxide network M(S+C) /rGO.

Biological reactivity of aluminoslicate based materials:

Certain quantity of Alumina (Al2O3) and Silica (SiO3) are carefully mixed and synthesized in such a way to analyze the biological response of the material. The biological response is studied by invitro analysis of various types of living cells.

Nontoxic nanosheets for wastewater treatment:

A simple one step method employed for synthesis of ternary material based nanosheets. The catalytic activity of the material was studied by photodegradation of the wastewater and toxicity tests on certain Artemia and bacterial species is also studied.

Transition metal dichalcogenide nanoparticles for electrochemical biosensing:

Transition metal dichalcogenides nanoparticles synthesized by various plant extracts. The physiochemical characterization revealed the formation of material and its compositional stoichiometry. The biosensing application of the synthesized material was analyzed through electrochemical approach.

Green nanotechnology for energy application:

The primary objective of this research work is development of metal oxide nanoparticles and its application as an emerging green catalysts. The research work is focused onlowering the photogenerated electron-hole recombination rate and extending the photon absorption edge to visible light region by green synthesis of ecofriendly Metal oxide deposited carbon based nanocomposites.
