EFCS 2017 - Session V - K Vijaya Mohan Pillai 24 Sept 2017

Prof. K Vijayamohan Pillai (CECRI, Karaikudi) presented his talk on Smart Materials. Smart Materials can do multiple function. Many type of integument materials  which have difference in their smartness. They can be called as passively smart, actively smart or very smart. He explained many methods for making smart materials such as intelligent Batteries, Smart Seniors, and Smart catalysts. He also explained about Chemistry of 2D materials and synthesis of luminescent quantum dots. He mentioned about smart rooms.

 

 

EFCS - Session V - INN Namboothiri - 24 Sept 2017

 Prof. I. N. N. Namboothiri (IIT Bombay) presented a talk on Carbon Nanotube - Metal Nanohybrid. He mentioned the benefits of Heterogeneous Catalysis.

 

 

He proposed various reaction mechanisms of this hybrid. He also explained his work on Nanotube-Ruthenium Nanohybrid and their different reaction mechanisms. He also described about Pd-Nanotube hybrid and its reaction properties.

                                                                                        
EFCS 2017 - Session V - Kuriakose - 24 Sept 2017Prof. Subi Jacob George (JNCASR, Bengaluru)  spoke about the importance of Supramolecular Assemblies. He gave an explanation of his current research about supramolecular transient materials or supramoleculr non equilibrium materials.  He told that in biological system such transient assemblies are formed and by getting inspired by this,they make the synthesis fruitful. He explained about the  selectivity, dynamic nature of such synthesis. The work have application in many areas such as catalysis.
