Three professors of Kurukshetra University sanctioned research projects by Haryana Science and Technology Department


KURUKSHETRA: The Haryana Science and Technology Department (HSTD) on Tuesday sanctioned 3 research projects to three professors and scientists of various fields of Kurukshetra University (KU), instructed the senior officials of the dept in Chandigarh.

As according to assets, Dr Ashok Khemka, main secretary, HSTD instructed in Chandigarh that conserving in view the importance of Research in the box of Science and Technology, the funds beneath the Research and Development scheme could be additional increased in order that quality research may well be carried out for the upliftment of the socio-economic usual of the society. Khemka additional instructed beneath this scheme, grant as much as Rs 20 lakh is sanctioned to the scientists or professors of Educational or Research Institute for wearing out Research and Development Project in the box of Science and Technology.


Three professors of KU were sanctioned other projects associated with their box by means of the government.


Research undertaking on remedy of cancer is sanctioned to Dr Ranjana Aggarwal, Department of Chemistry, KU. The research undertaking entitled `Multicomponent Domino approach towards regioselective synthesis of functionalized fused azaheterocycles as DNA-targeting agents' goals to develop small nitrogen-containing organic molecules as medicine to treat cancer. It is expected that working out the interaction behaviour of azahetreocycles with DNA as intercalators or groove binders or as DNA cleavers will result in anticancer agents which will selectively recognize base pairs, sequences, and conformational features of nucleic acids.


Research undertaking on building of hybrid perovskite primarily based energy harvesters for small space devices is sanctioned to Dr Manish Kumar, Assistant Professor, Department of Physics, KU. In this paintings, the inorganic-organic hybrid perovskite primarily based thin movies for photo voltaic cellular packages can be synthesized. The benefits of those photo voltaic cells over traditional Si-solar cells come with their synthesis from solutions at low processing temperatures, high efficiencies (over 23 according to cent), low manufacturing cost and possible for large scale production techniques corresponding to roll-to-roll printing. Like organic photo voltaic cells they are able to be placed on flexible substrates and will also be lightweight and semi-transparent. Perovskite photo voltaic cells will also be the way forward for solar power if the thermal balance is advanced by means of a suitable doping.


Research undertaking on manufacturing of bioethanol from Parthenium is sanctioned to Dr Neeraj Kumar, Department of Microbiology, KU. Parthenium hysterophorus is also known as congress grass is likely one of the global's maximum devastating weeds. It was once imported by accident in India as a contaminant along with various wheat and because then it has unfold to all states of India. The studies have indicated that during India Parthenium hysterophorus has unfold over 35 million hectares space in 2018.
