    Research

      Our research is focused on different properties of conducting polymer nanostructures and polymer electrolytes. The work involves synthesizing and characterizing of conducting polymer-based nanostructures and nanocomposites for sensing and biomedical applications. Studies on electrical transport properties of graphene and Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDCs) based conducting polymer nanostructures for high performance supercapacitorelectrode applications are also in our domain of research. The group is also focusing on developing polymer electrolytes based on ionic liquids and Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) for applications in rechargeable batteries. To gain an insight as to how ionic conductivity in polymers can be understood in terms of the dynamic aspects of local structure, including changes in coordination number and in the distribution of electronic charge is the prime interest. Modification of conducting polymer nanostructures and polymer electrolytes upon Swift Heavy Ion Irradiation is one of our research interests.
