At Banasthali Marie Curie Fellowship Awarded Dr Veera Sadhu Talks on Nanotechnology
Possibilities of Doctors inside Human Body, Sensors everywhere, Self Healing Structures, Making Big Data real and Tackling Climate Change are just only some of the impossibilities Nanotechnology holds in securing our future.
Starting from very basics of lizards, butterflies and lotus flower and leaves having something nano about them, he talked about nanomaterials, nanoparticles, nanorods, nanotubes, nanowires, nanoporous membranes, graphene and graphene quantum dots. Also he describes Nano lithography, soft lithography, photo lithography, E Beam Lithography (EBL), Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), Polymer nano particles, grapheme oxide using modified Hummers method, hydrothermal synthesis of Titanium dioxide nano particles. It was true eye opening for the audience when the nano applications included Dye Sensitized Solar Cells DSSC, Fuel Cells, Organic Light Emitting Diode OLED, Nano Medicines, Proton Exchange Membrane PEM Fuel Cells etc. He got a loud round of applause when he highlighted that Cell therapy with embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes encapsulated in injectable nanomatrix gel enhances cell engraftment and promotes cardiac repair.
Prof BR Natarajan welcomed the gathering and introduced the speaker to the audience and proposed vote of thanks. Prof Veera Sadhu's talk undoubtedly ignited nanotech spirit in many chemical engineering students who attended the same.
