Aman Pandey
Aman Pandey has completed his MSc. in Chemical Sciences from Central University of Gujarat, Gandhinagar. After completing his MSc. in 2014, He was selected as Junior Research Fellow at IIT Gandhinagar. He had worked in the broad fields of heterogeneous catalysis for solid gas phase reactions and got three international publications. The project which he performed was “CO2 reforming of methane to generate syngas using nanostructured doped oxides and nanoporous aluminosilicates” In this project he had tuned active site location of the non-reducible metal oxide (La2O3) and changed it into a reducible oxide through a suitable dopant and increased its oxygen storage capacity (Published at JPCC). In another project titled was “Langmuir-Hinshelwood adsorption mechanism for the green synthesis of 1, 4-benzodiazipines over La2O3 and La(OH)3 catalyst”. He did the adsorption study and determine the basicity of La2O3 and La(OH)3 (Published at RSC adv.) . In addition to this he had done hydrogenation of acetylene with Ni doped ceria and Pd doped ceria (published at PCCP). Now he was selected and joined IITB-Monash Research Academy for his PhD under the supervision of Prof.Anil Kumar (IIT Bombay) and Prof. Neil Cameron (Monash University). His research topic is Design, Synthesis and Application of Biocatalysis for Continuous Flow Synthesis.
