Artificial Photosynthesis
Artificial photosynthesis can transform CO2 into useful organics with the help of an efficient photocatalyst. This leads to renewable carbon fixation and sustainable energy conversion. The goal of this project is to build up artificial leaf which can work like natural system under visible light irradiation. Development of the photoelectrochemical cell (PEC) to continue the process of sustainable energy conversion  and production of  ~1 L of H2 per day by using the sunlight will be the ultimate achievement of this project.
 
Metal Organic Framework Derived Catalysts for Energy Conversion 
Exploring new materials with high efficiency and durability for the electrochemical processes is the primary requirement for the development in the field of energy conversion and storage. Application of metal organic framework (MOF) derived materials for the electrochemical energy conversion like oxygen evolution, hydrogen evolution, oxygen reduction or battery materials have been found to be an emerging field of research in last few years. In this project, we will focus on the systematic design of the materials from MOF and control over their inherent properties to enhance their electrochemical performances.
Photocatalytic Organic Reactions with Quantum Dots and Semiconductors 
Photocatalytic organic reactions such as selective oxidation, oxidative couplings reactions by using visible light active photocatalyst are of great importance towards achieving sustainable chemistry. In practical applications there are several challenges like low selectivity, sluggish reaction rate etc. Therefore, or objective is to develop suitable protocol to improve the activity and selectivity. We investigate the application of semiconductor materials or quantum dots by band engineering to improve the selectivity. Development of the cocatalyst systems to control the electron-hole separation and transport is also the objective of this work. 
 
Bioinspired Electrochemical Oxygen Evolution Reaction
Electrocatalytic oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) have been considered to play the pivotal role for the energy conversion and storage. Designing of new catalyst systems following the principle of nature could be the most useful way of energy conversion. In this respect, understanding the natural catalyst systems is essential to improve the efficiency of the artificial catalysts. In this project we shall develop transition metal based catalysts which can mimic the nature both structurally and functionally. Comparison of the natural and synthesized system and correlating them in the molecular level will also be studied to develop the basic understanding of this subject.
