Training on Advances in Applications of Nanotechnology

About the Training Programme Course

Nanotechnology deals with the manipulation of atoms, molecules, or molecular clusters to create functional materials and devices with enhanced & desirable properties. The first use of the concept of 'nanotechnology' was in "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom", a talk given by physicist Richard Feynman in 1959. Nanotechnology, no longer remain a theoretical science rather it has gained the status of applied science being used in multidisciplinary field. Agriculture and Food Production are no exception to it. This has realized the potential of nanotechnology in each stage starting from crop production to consumption. In India, Department of Science and Technology (DST) has initiated the Nano-Mission to foster the research activities in this field. Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in collaboration with state agricultural universities has initiated Consortium Research Project (CRP) on Nanotechnology to boost the research in the field of nanotechnology and its application in agriculture. ICAR-CIRCOT has done pioneering work in the field of nanotechnology and has developed more tahn a decade of experience and expertise in synthesis & characterization of nanomaterials and its application in textile finishing development of nanocomposites etc. In 2015, ICAR-CIRCOT has established India’s First Nanocellulose Pilot Plant. With this background, advanced trainings are being arranged to share the knowledge with diverse stakeholders. This training module on 'Advances in Applications of Nanotechnology' is 14th in the series, designed to impart basic and advanced knowledge of nanotechnology and its applications.

Objective

  • To acquaint participants with the Recent Advances in Nanotechnology
  • To impart hands-on training on synthesis & characterization of nanomaterials
  • To demonstrate the application of nanomaterials in textiles, composites, Pulp & paper, filtration, sensors and agriculture & allied sectors

Course Content
