REsearch Interest

The research theme of our group is the synthesis of Polyaniline-CNT/GO-based (PANI- CNT/GO) magnetic nanomaterials for wastewater treatment. Besides the development of PANI-CNT/GO-based nanomaterials, I also worked on polyaniline (PANI)-MOF-supported flexible electrodes for the treatment of textile dyes effluents using Microbial Fuel Cells (MFC). The development of green car air fresheners gels is another interesting wing of our research team.
