Dr. Chandramohan George

Research Associate

Chandramohan George is available for consultancy.


Dr. Chandramohan George received his PhD in nanotechnology from  University of Genova, Italy, investigating self-assembly and self-organization processes of nanostructures. He then joined the research group of Prof. Dr.L.Manna as a postdoctoral fellow at IIT Genova, where he developed advanced colloidal routes to produce tailor-made nanocrystals and their surface engineering/functionalization for Li-ion batteries, bi-functional heterogeneous catalysts and plasmonics. His research interests include the fabrication of novel nanostructures, hierarchical assemblies and their applications ranging from energy storage, plasmonics to photo-catalysts, as sustainable and cost-effective future technologies
