Course Synopsis

The course has been designed while keeping in view the three aspects of modern research in inorganic chemistry. Firstly MOFs have been included that are recently developed materials for various industrial applications. Secondly, Boron chemistry provides the basis for BNCT technology. and finally the focus will be on the advanced processes that can be adopted for economic and efficient treatment of water to conserve water resources.

Course Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to understand the latest techniques used to synthesize and characterize the MOfs, their underlying chemistry and applications. They would be able to understand the chemistry of BORON and various latest techniques introduced to treat the water and wastewater.
