Atmospheric Aersosols

Interactions with several faculty across the institute for problems related to the environment. Many of these collaborators have also worked with the Indo-German Center for Sustainability. The focus of interaction with these faculty members in Civil engineering, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Humanities and Social Sciences and Applied Mechanics are in the areas…

ILDS (Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Data Science)

This research initiative seeks to advance and implement practices for gathering, processing and analysing data across different engineering and social branches. The primary aim of the initiative is to be one-stop-solution for all data analytics related needs — gathering, processing and analysing — of the IIT community as well as…

Catalysis

To elucidate the reaction mechanisms and kinetic of reactions few of our faculty use computations tools such as quantum chemical ab-initio calculations, density functional theory (DFT) calculations, classical kinetic pathway modeling and stochastic population balances. Some applications include micro-kinetic modeling, complex transformations in oxidation and pyrolysis, gas hydration nucleation and…

Combustion

1. National Center for Catalysis Research (NCCR): Cutting edge research is performed in the domain of development of mesoporous heterogeneous catalysts with engineered pore size and pore size distribution. A number of complex organic transformations involving biomass model compounds and woody biomasses are carried out to selectively produce fine chemical…

Soft matter

With an objective of understanding mesoscale systems and their behavior, our faculty uses a variety of techniques such as Monte-Carlo, Molecular Dynamics, Brownian Dynamics, Lattice Boltzmann and continuum field simulations. With a combination of these tools based on equilibrium and nonequilibrium approaches, they are involved in investigating the physical behavior…
