Catalysis is one of the oldest branches in Chemistry. This field primarily deals with the speed of chemical reactions and ways of manipulating them. Right from living systems to large-scale production of fine chemicals like pharmaceuticals and plastics, the science and technology of catalysis plays a pivotal role. I will introduce the chemistry aspects of catalysis at a general level and proceed to discuss on the increasing relevance of this science in sustainability. I will draw a few examples from my research as well as others during the discussion.
In this talk starting from a pre-defined problem, how certain bottlenecks encountered resulted in the above work – where we demonstrated a low cost method to synthesis a carbon based material – Graphene oxide. The work demonstrated that high quality synthesis of graphene oxide can be achieved without expensive filtration methods for carbonaceous and metallic residues. I will also outline some of the practical applications of this material which we are working on at present.
