The research focus of our group falls in the broader fields of inorganic and materials chemistry with emphasis to synthesis, physical and chemical properties and materials applications. We are interested I designing new molecules, host-guest assemblies, supramolecules and materials with ferroelectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric and other non-linear properties. Further we use several state of the art instrumentation techniques and computational analysis to characterize and study the Physical properties of the compounds and study them for their utility in chemical separations, catalysis, energy and electronic applications.
