Circular No. 73/2018
RECRUITMENT FOR PROJECT
Applications are invited from the citizens of India for filling up the following temporary
for the sponsored project
Metallurgical Engineering & Materials Science
of this Institute. The
temporary initially for a period of
and tenable only for the duration of the project. The requisite qualification & experience etc. are given below:
Project Code, Project Title & Funding Agency
RD/0118-DST0000-010 :"Diary No. SERB/F/1298/2018-2019 dated 28.05.2018 Title: Mopping oil withgraphene based composite sponge"
About the project: Superhydrophobic graphene-framework is expected to be an excellent candidate for oil adsorbent. Oxidized graphene frame-work is hydrophilic in nature and can be used directly for removing organic contaminants from water. Superhydrophobic hierarchical graphene-framework can be synthesized by reducing the oxidized graphene-framework through green chemistry route. Indigenously developed three dimensional framework of graphene will be extensively characterized using contact angle measurement with fast frame rate imaging which is the most crucial technique for measuring the surface properties and interaction of mixed phase with the surface. Variation with angle and temperature will also be recorded and studied in conjunction with several other tools available in the lab such as microscopy, spectroscopy. Other characterization will be done by central or department facilities such as BET, SEM, TEM etc along with toxicological and ecological feasibility testing. The ultimate aim of this project will be to focus on development of processes and devices that can be implemented in coastal areas after extensive characterization and studies.
