Research interests

Research interests are generally directed in the following areas involving microporous materials:

  • Adsorption equilibrium and diffusion characterization of microporous materials. Use of the novel techniques such as extended ZLC chromatography for diffusive characterization of binary mixtures.
  • Zeolite based adsorption processes in air pollution control.
  • Adsorption breakthrough modelling.
  • Inorganic membranes.
