Electrochemical Process Engineering Overview

The research focuses mainly on the electro synthesis of inorganic chemicals like chlorate and perchlorates of alkali and alkaline earth metals and ammonium perchlorate. Also focuses on development of electrode materials for electrosynthesis of inorganic chemicals. Now the main focus involved,

The generation of hydrogen (i) by PEM based water electrolysis, (ii) by photochemical oxidation of water using molecular catalysis and (iii) by water oxidation by functional electrocatalysts and novel composite electrolytes.

  • Development of electrochemical processes for a cleaner environment viz., drinking water treatment thro electro-oxidation, electro-reduction, electrocoagulation, electrosynthesis of oxidants (ozone, hypochlorite, hydroxyl radical etc.,) and electrochemical advanced oxidation processes.
