|Asst.Prof. Madhavi Srinivasan is in the School of Materials Science and Engineering since 2004. She received her Bachelor degree in Chemistry from University of Madras, Masters and Ph.D.degrees in Chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology and National University of Singapore respectively. Her research interests include nanostructured materials (viz. Carbon nanotubes) for Energy storage devices (lithium ion batteries,zinc-air batteries/fuel cells, supercapacitors), Ecomaterials (photocatalysts, ion-exchange ceramic membranes) and Nanostructured materials (Nanotubes/flakes/wires)synthesis and characterization XPS, XRD, SEM/TEM and spectroscopy). She has published over 50 top quality international journal and conference papers and has served as reviewer for a number of premier conferences and journals, including J. Mater. Chem., Langmuir, Electrochim. Acta, J solid state chemistry, J.Electrochem. Soc., J.Sol Gel Science and Technology, Separation & purification, J.Hazardous Mater. etc. and is a member of Materials Research Society.|
|Asst.Prof. Madhavi Srinivasan areas of expertise are in Energy storage devices (lithium ion batteries,zinc-air batteries/fuel cells, supercapacitors), Ecomaterials (photocatalysts, ion-exchange ceramic membranes) and synthesis/characterization (XPS, XRD, SEM/TEM and spectroscopy) of nanostructured materials. Her current research works focus on employing functionalized carbon nanotubes SWNT/MWNT)and decorated CNTs as electrodes in batteries/supercapacitors. Her ongoing work involves fabrication of nanostructures of transtion metal oxide and metal nanoparticles and optimization of their adhesion on to carbon-based materials.She is also working on visible light photocatalysts such as perovskite and nitrogen doped titania along with activated carbon.|
