    Dr. Anand D. Sawant Associate Professor in chemistry and Dean research (R& D Cell)

    Our groupís research interests are divided into three projects that broadly address four (3, 7, 12, 13) UNSDGs. Project Green includes, Ionic Liquid (IL) catalyzed selective organic transformations. In our project Energy we are focusing on preparing functionalized molecules that can give tools to control morphology of materials for energy applications. Project Earth deals with use of natural molecules for biological applications and conversion of biomass (agri- waste to valuable products).
