DBT sponsored National seminar for staff - 15th September- 2016.Nanomaterials are cornerstones of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanostructure science and technology is a broad and interdisciplinary area of research and development activity that has been growing explosively worldwide in the past few years. It has the potential for revolutionizing the ways in which materials and products are created and the range and nature of functionalities that can be accessed. Nanomaterials are of interest because at this scale unique optical, magnetic, electrical, and other properties emerge. These emergent properties have the potential for great impacts in electronics, medicine, and other fields. It is already having a significant commercial impact, which will assuredly increase in the future. Keeping the advancement of nanomaterials and the extensive research progressing worldwide, Andhra Loyola College (autonomous), which acts as a nerve centre in south India to impart scientific temperament and inspired research pursuit among the academicians, students and industrialists, organized a two-day national level seminar on the topic “ADVANCES IN THE SYNTHESIS OF NANO MATERIALS AND THEIR MULTI-DIMENSIONAL APPLICATIONS IN CHEMICAL & BIO-SCIENCES” by the department of Chemistry in association with botany, biotechnology, microbiology and zoology departments, and in collaboration with Krishna university and Andhra Loyola institute of Engineering and Technology (ALIET) during 14th& 15th September- 2016.
Prof. Dr. T. RAVIRAJU, the Vice-Chancellor of Dr.N.T.R University of Health Sciences was the chief guest at the inaugural session and emphasized on the use of nanomaterials and nanorobotics in surgery and tissue development related to biosciences. The number of technical sessions and enthusiastic oral presentations during the two days, out lined below, were very useful and highly inspirational.
Sri. Y. V. S. T. SAI, IAS Secretary, APPSC the chief guest at the valedictory function,highlightedthe innumerable applications of nanomaterials in dat-to-day life and the vast use of nanomaterials and nanotechnology towards super structured buildings. A total of 350 academicians and 150 students from different parts of India representing various academic, professional and scientific bodies participated in this seminar. The organizers are indebted to the Department of Biotechnology under the ministry of Human Resources Development, New Delhi for their financial support. We look forward to organize many more such events under the sponsorship of DBT
