Dr. (Mrs.). GVN Rathna

Research areas

  • Polymer Chemistry
  • Materials Chemistry including Nanomaterials
  • Complex Fluids and Polymer Engineering
  • Solar Energy Research
  • We work on synthesis and modification of polymers, development of blends and composites of polymers in the form of nanogels, nanofibers and patterns. Study their structure and property relationship. Fabrication and formulations of the polymers. Applications of the polymers in the areas of biomedical (wound dressing, drug delivery, tissue engineeering), environmental (waste water treatment, air purifying filters ) and energy.
