Field of Research

🔬 Exploring the realm of “Colloidal fluids (Microemulsions, Hydrogels, Micelles) as drug carriers and nanoreactors,” my research delves into the expansive applications of microfluids. These colloidal self-assembly fluids, acting as nanoreactors, play a pivotal role in advancing pharmaceuticals, clinical science, and nanotechnology. Their potential spans biomedicine, nanoelectronics, and catalysis, showcasing their versatility. On another front, my work in “Adsorption (wastewater treatment)” highlights the innovative and cost-effective nature of the adsorption process. Leveraging clays and organoclays, this approach offers a promising solution for wastewater treatment, combining performance with environmental friendliness. 🌐🧪
