The DST FIST project, with a budget of 2.20 crores, has been awarded to the Department of Chemistry at SRM AP. This project aims to establish a research facility that will significantly increase our ability to conduct advanced research. The proposal seeks to attain specific goals related to the creation of metal-based nanomaterial catalysts for organic synthesis, as well as multifunctional mixed metal oxide catalysts for hydrogen production from methane. The Department has been recommended a 400 MHz NMR spectrometer by DST, which will enhance our expertise and aid in achieving the proposed objectives.
Development of new multi component and oxidative coupling reactions using metal-based nanomaterials/metal oxides as the catalyst
