Connecting Science and Technology for a brighter tomorrow



Highlights of the Group
The glorious journey of Advanced Materials Group has started from 1964. At the beginning it was established as Fuel Division for research in Vertical Shaft Kiln technology for cement making. In 1967, it was converted to Cement Division for working on Vertical Shaft Kiln (VSK) technology. In 1971 the division was renamed as Silicate Technology Division for working in the areas of value added silicate materials. The department was further converted to Inorganic Chemistry Division in 1976, with its areas of research extending to cement and building materials, iron ore beneficiation and pelletization, oil field chemicals, zeolites, catalysts and other inorganic chemicals. Later the department added new and exciting research areas like ores and minerals of North Eastern region, adsorption, clay chemistry, organometallic and coordination compounds, supported nanometals, nanostructured materials, layered materials, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. The department was renamed in 1994 as Materials Science Division and from 2016 the group is rechristened as Advanced Materials Group. The group has taken up research in the fields of nanocomposite materials, metal organic frameworks, catalysis, small molecules activation and nano oxidic membranes for water and gas purification etc.
