Dr. Sanjib Banerjee
Ph.D. (Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, Kolkata)
Assistant Professor, IIT Bhilai

Areas of Interest :

The main focus of Dr. Sanjib Banerjee’s research group is on functional polymer synthesis, surface chemistry, nanomaterials and materials science. Synthetically we are utilizing numerous modern polymerization techniques in combination with the post-polymerization modification techniques to prepare polymer based advanced materials for emerging applications. With the development of a powerful synthetic toolbox, we are extending and pushing the current limits of polymer chemistry. Our work involves material design, molecular characterization and prototype device fabrication.

Extensive research is being done in the field of self-healing sealants for photovoltaics, carbon di-oxide capture/recycling, and multi-stimuli responsive polymer for biomedical applications.
