Biography

Since 2002, She has joined group of Hon. (late) Prof. R.C. Mehrotra(known as father of metalalkoxides Chemistry) department of chemistry, University of Rajasthan, jaipur as a research scholar and worked on synthesis and characterization of matallorganic compounds of ‘P’ block elements during her research she has synthesized organometallic compounds (including Grignard’s reagent) as well as metal alkoxides  under anhydrous conditions using  Schlenk line technique or vaccum gas method (ref. Craig M. Davis and Kelly A. Curran, November 2007) and selected as a project fellow for three years (2004-2007) from UGC, New Delhi. During her Ph.D, she has synthesized different metallorganic compounds which have further used  as a precursors for nanocystalline metal / heterometal  oxides ( used as a ceramic materials in optical devices) and thin films and published several research papers in international journal of high repute and presented papers in several national and international conferences/symposium/workshops/ seminars.

 She has taught BSc. and MSc.(Chemistry)at P.G. College , jaipur, at theirs she has taught (theory as well as practical’s) Inorganic chemistry to undergraduate students and several  topics (Coordination Chemistry, Organometallic Chemistry, Spectroscopy) to Post graduate (Chemistry) students(2007-2009).

 Due to the active involvement in research and good profile she has awarded as a research associate from CSIR, Pusa, New Delhi (2009). She has joined nanotechnology laboratory, Department of Chemistry, IITDelhi, New Delhi.

She has learnt  many techniques like sol-gel, hydrothermal, reverse micelles and micro emulsions and using these techniques she has prepared several nanocrystalline metal [Si(IV), Ge(IV), Sn(II) (IV)and Pb(II)]/ heterometal oxides [Sn (IV) and Al(III)] and characterized them by spectroscopical  (U.V., FT IR, Fab Mass, multinuclear NMR , 1H, 13C{1H}, 119Sn{1H}, ) Molecular weight measurements using Backman’s thermometer (Einsteiithermometer n-Beckmann, Labortherm-N, Skalewert, 0.01K, made in GDR) , Microanalysis (N, kjeldhal’s method), halides (Volhard’s method) and metals were estimated by gravimetrically, metal oxides were characterized by P-XRD pattern, TGA/DTA, SEM, TEM etc. her main goals are :

  1. Handling of moisture sensitive compounds under anhydrous condition.
  2. Characterization of IR, NMR, Fab Mass spectra.
  3. Oil Bath Distillation under high temperature low pressure vaccum pump.
  4. Laboratory preparation of Grignard’s reagent .
  5. Preparation of nanosized metal/heterometal oxides.
  6. Molecular weight measurements using Backman’s thermometer.
  7. Microanalysis of Nitrogen by  kjeldhal’s method.
  8. Instrument handling like IR, UV, TGA/DTA, Spectrophotometer, Ultra centrifugal machine, autoclave, muffle furnace, glove box, electronic weighing machine, P-XRD, SEM.
  9. Computer software’s Chemdraw, MS PowerPoint, MSWord, MS Window, MS excel, Photoshop, scanning, internet etc.

She has selected as a lecturer (chemistry) from DTTE, govt. of NCT of Delhi, New Delhi (2011). She has also taught school students as well as engineering students with different organizations.

Still Now she has actively involved in current research methodology and currently working as a assistant professor at department of chemistry, school of basic and applied sciences, krmangalam university, gurgaon, Haryana.
