Research Interest

My main research areas are synthesis of carbon nanotubes (SWNTs/MWNTs) using plasma technology and their characterization. Application of CNTs especially development of pressure sensors and nanocomposites. I have also interests in experimental and theoretical study of transport phenomena (Thermal heat transfer, diffusion and viscosity in alloys. However, currently I am working more on development of nanocomposites based on biopolymer and CNTs.

Current Research Project

  1. Preparation and characterization of FG/MWNTs nanocomposite films

   Fish gelatin (FG) will be prepared from fish scale (Hilsha fish) by using chemical Method. Solvent-casting method will be employed to prepare FG/MWNTs film, where MWNTs will be used as reinforcing agent.

  1. FG/MWNTs composites coating for perishable fruits preservation

   Edible and washable bio-nanocomposite coatings from fish scales-derived polymers and carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) will be prepared.

  1. Extraction of Crystalline Nanocellulose (CNC) from water lily fiber

CNC will be extracted from water lily fiber using chemical and mechanical method. Produced will be characterized using XRD and FTIR.
