CUSB JRF Bhavesh Kumar Dadhich presented paper at Faraday Discussion in London
Continuing its endeavour to make the waves in the academics and research worldwide and achieving new milestones, the Department of Chemistry of Central University of South Bihar has got an opportunity to present its research work at London (United Kingdom). The research work done on a new class of nanomaterials, namely, ‘ hollow silver nanocubes’ under the supervision of Dr. Amiya Priyam, Assistant Professor, Chemistry was presented at the prestigious meeting, Faraday Discussion, which was held at London, UK during February 18-20, 2019.
Providing details Dr. Priyam said that the international scientific event was organised by Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Cambridge, UK and the theme for the discussion was ”Hot-electron science and microscopic processes in plasmonics and catalysis”. I along with my team synthesized a new class of nanomaterials called ‘hollow silver nanocubes’ which show unique optical property, ‘Surface Plasmon Resonance’. These nanomaterials were then utilized to harvest solar energy for environmental remediation of dye-wastes produced in textile industry.
Mr. Bhavesh Kumar Dadhich, the Junior Research Fellow (JRD) in the project at CUSB, thanked Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India for providing International Travel Support (ITS). Mr. Bhavesh also said that the guidance and support received from Dr. Priyam was crucial for achieving success in the project which was also funded by DST Govt. of India.
It should be also noted that, recently, another leading scientific society, American Chemical Society(ACS) also recognized the work of Dr. Priyam and his team which was published in their journal (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsanm.8b01110). Faraday Discussions 2019 is the 300th ever Faraday Discussion since the meetings began in 1907, and many Discussions have become landmark meetings in their field. This meeting discussed the most recent breakthroughs in this multidisciplinary and emerging field from the different perspectives of physicists, chemists and biologists. The meeting provided a point of reference for the future development of plasmonics, catalysis, and more generally hot-electron science. The research papers and a record of the discussion will be published in a reputed journal, Faraday Discussions, mentioned Dr. Priyam.
