Prof. Polshettiwar has been recommended for Young Career Award in Nano Science & Technology for the year 2020 by Nano Mission, Department of Science & Technology, Government of India. He will receive the award during International Conference on Nano S&T (ICONSAT-2020) during 5-7 March, 2019 at Kolkata.
Mr. Amit Mishra's work on perfecting defects in nanomaterials (imperfections) and make them catalytically active for transforming CO2 to fuel, is now accepted for publication in reputed PNAS (USA). This work is a kind of fundamental breakthrough for our goal to achieve a sustainable process for CO2 to fuel conversion, as it does not use any metal and ligand.
Our work on "Black Gold to Fight Climate Change" by Mahak Dhiman and Ayan Maity, which was recently published in Chemical Science, was covered by leading news papers
Prof. Polshettiwar received prestigious Materials Research Society of India - MRSI Medal 2019
This will be presented to him during the Annual General Meeting of MRSI to be held at IISc, Bangalore, during February 12-15, 2019
Mr. Ayan Maity, PhD Student of NanoCat lab, received best Oral award (1st prize) in National Conference on “Advanced Materials for Energy and Environmental Applications (AMEEA-2018)” at National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela, 12 - 14th December, 2018.
Mr. Ayan Maity (PhD Student) received two best Oral talk awards in below conferences on his work on synthesis of nano-sponges of aluminosilicates as well as on nano-catalysis;
1. International Conference on Nanotechnology, ‘NANOCON’ during 25-26 October 2018 at Hotel Shereton Grand, Raja Bahadur Mill Road Pune.
2. “ACS Publications Forum: Expanding Frontiers in Chemical Science” on November 1, 2018 at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi.
