Special Seminar

 
 

GIAN course by Prof. Martin Albrecht from University of Bern, Switzerland

Title: Sustainable Chemistry through Catalysis
Date and Venue: 21-24 March, 2017

Overview:
To meet improved living standards of earth’s growing population, a constant supply of chemical products must be maintained. These chemicals need to be accessed in a simple and energy-efficient manner utilizing cheap and abundant natural sources with minimal chemical waste. Catalysis is the key technology to convert challenging substrates to useful chemicals. This course covers the fundamental and applied aspects of homogeneous catalysis. A specific focus will be directed on catalysis for oxidative transformations, and the ensuing aspects related to ligand design. Underlying design principles for ligands to operate under specific conditions will be discussed as well applications and perspectives, for example towards artifiicial photosynthesis and water splitting.

Global Initiative on Academic Networks (GIAN) funded course on "Catalysis for Energy Source" by Professor Xile Hu from EPFL, Switzerland on March 21-24

To attend GIAN lectures one need to register in the GIAN portal. Once you are enrolled in the portal, you need to apply for the aforementioned course. You will be notified through an e-mail if you are shortlisted to attend. The number of students in a course is limited to make it as interactive as possible. Details of the visiting faculty can be obtained from his homepage: http://lsci.epfl.ch/huWe have planned to admit one PhD student from each group who can be nominated by the faculty member (may be through a mail). Also 10 students from MSc, MS, BS will also be admitted apart from the students from other institutes. All the lectures will be recorded for future use according to the norms of GIAN. Apart from the GIAN lectures, interactions with students, faculty members and a department seminar are also planned. More details will announced at later stage. To get more information please contact Professor J. Bera ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or Dr. R. Angamuthu ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). Further details are in this link.
