R&D Areas/Projects

  • Mass transfer with chemical reaction : Intensification of mass transfer processes, mass transfer theories, concentrated dispersions, interfacial reactions.
  • Biochemical Engineering : Enzymatic reaction kinetics, enzyme action in heterogeneous media. Fermentation technology - kinetic modelling, operating strategies for productivity enhancement, simultaneous saccharification and fermentation of starchy substrates, novel techniques for oxygen supply to viscous aerobic fermentations. Applications to lactic acid , diacetyl and xanthan gum fermentations.
  • Polymer reaction engineering : Interfacial polycondensation - kinetic modelling, correlation between reaction rate, polymer structure and performance in applications such as controlled release microcapsules and thin film composite membranes.
  • Liquid phase organic oxidations : Kinetics and reaction engineering of catalyzed and uncatalyzed autoxidations.
