Process Intensification through multifunctional reactors and catalysis

The work involves identification of a gowing fine chemical and develop a process for the same. Catalyst would be identified and synthsized if required. Catalyst would be characterised and teh performance will be evaluaed and comapred with the conventional counterpart. Various strategies such as combining reaction and separation in a single unit would be explored. Kinetic modeling would be performed for the new catalyst. Modeling and simulation would be performed to comapre the same with the conventional process and bring out the added benefits offered by the porposed process. The work involves both modeling and experimental work.
