About this book

This book presents state-of-the-art coverage of synthesis of advanced functional materials. Unconventional synthetic routes play an important role in the synthesis of advanced materials as many new materials are metastable and cannot be synthesized by conventional methods. This book presents various synthesis methods such as conventional solid-state method, combustion method, a range of soft chemical methods, template synthesis, molecular precursor method, microwave synthesis, sono-chemical method and high-pressure synthesis. It provides a comprehensive overview of synthesis methods and covers a variety of materials, including ceramics, films, glass, carbon-based, and metallic materials. Many techniques for processing and surface functionalization are also discussed. Several engineering aspects of materials synthesis are also included. The contents of this book are useful for researchers and professionals working in the areas of materials and chemistry.   



About the authors

Dr. A. K. Tyagi obtained his M.Sc. (Chemistry) degree in 1985 from Meerut University, Meerut and joined 29th batch of BARC Training School, Mumbai in the same year. After completing one year orientation course, he joined Chemistry Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai in 1986. Presently, he is Associate Director, Chemistry Group, BARC, Mumbai, and a Senior Professor of Chemistry at Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), Mumbai. His research interests are in the field chemistry of materials, which includes functional materials, nanomaterials, nuclear materials, energy materials, metastable materials, hybrid materials and structure-property correlation.   He has published about 650 papers in journals, several books and has supervised 30 PhD students.

He was awarded PhD by Mumbai University, Mumbai in 1992. He did postdoctoral research at Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research (MPI-FKF), Stuttgart, Germany during 1995-96 on a Max-Planck Fellowship. Subsequently, he regularly visited MPI-FKF, Stuttgart as a visiting scientist. In addition, he has also visited Institute of Superior Technology, Portugal; Institute for Chemical Process and Environmental Technology, Ottawa, Canada; Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada; Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia; Institute for Materials, Nantes, France; University of Malay, Malaysia; National Institute of Materials Science, Tsukuba, Japan; National University of Singapore, Singapore; Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden; Rice University, Houston, USA; Shanghai, China; University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain; Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel; University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia; US-Air Force Research Lab, Dayton, USA, Institute for Studies of Nanostructured Materials, Palermo, Italy and iThemba Labs, Cape Town, South Africa.

In recognition of his significant contributions to the field of chemistry of materials, he has been conferred with many prestigious awards, such as Dr. Lakshmi award by the Indian Association of Solid State Chemists and Allied Scientists (2001); Rheometric Scientific-Indian Thermal Analysis Society Award (2002); Gold Medal of Indian Nuclear Society (2003); Materials Research Society of India’s Medal (2005); Chemical Research Society of India’s Bronze Medal (2006); DAE-Homi Bhabha Science and Technology Award (2006); IANCAS-Dr. Tarun Datta Memorial Award (2007); Rajib Goyal Prize in Chemical Sciences (2007); RD Desai Memorial Award from Indian Chemical Society (2008) and DAE-SRC Outstanding Research Investigator Award (2010); CRSI-Prof. CNR Rao National Prize in Chemical Sciences (2012); ISCB Award for Excellence in Chemical Sciences (2013); MRSI-ICSC Materials Science Senior Award (2014); Coastal Chemical Research Society’s Award (2014); Platinum Jubilee Lecture Award in Materials Science from Indian Science Congress Association (2015); Metallurgist of the Year Award  (2017), from Ministry of Steel, Government of India;  Chemical Research Society of India’s Silver Medal (2018); Materials Research Society of India’s Prof. CNR Rao Prize in Advanced Materials (2018); JNCASR’s National Prize in Solid State and Materials Chemistry  (2018) and Acharya PC Ray Memorial Award from Indian Science Congress Association (2020).

He is an elected Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences (FASc); National Academy of Sciences, India (FNASc); Maharashtra Academy of Sciences (FMASc); Royal Society of Chemistry, UK (FRSC) and Asia Pacific Academy of Materials.

Dr. Raghumani Singh Ningthoujam obtained M. Sc. in Chemistry from Manipur University in 1994. He was awarded Ph. D. in Chemistry from IIT Kanpur in area of superconducting, electron transport and magnetic properties of nanostructured transition metal nitrides in 2004. He joined BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre), Mumbai as Scientific Officer (D) in 2006 after completion of Dr. K. S. Krishnan Fellowship. Presently, he is working in area of Luminescent and Magnetic Nanomaterials and their applications in sensors, imaging, diagnosis and therapy. He did Post-Doctoral Fellowship at University of Victoria, Canada in the area of quantum dots. Presently, he is Scientific Officer (F) at Chemistry Division, BARC, Mumbai. He is recognized for Guideship of Ph. D. at Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), Mumbai and Mumbai University, Mumbai. Many research scholars and students finished their projects under his guidance. He has published about 150 Papers in the refereed Journals, 5 Review Articles and 4 Book Chapters. In recognition of his significant contributions to the chemical science, he has been awarded DAE-Scientific & Technical Excellence Award in 2012 and Young Achiever Award, SSPS 2010. He has been elected as a Fellow, The National Academy of Sciences, India (FNASc) in 2016 and Fellow, Maharashtra Academy of Sciences (FMASc) in 2013.
