A Professor from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, has been selected for the prestigious C N R Rao National Prize for research in Chemical Sciences.

Dr M V Sangaranarayanan, Professor, Department of Chemistry, IIT-M, was selected for the award, instituted by the C N R Rao Educational Foundation for the promotion of Chemical Research in India.

The award was constituted by the Chemical Research Society of India, a professional body that promotes and facilitates research and education in all branches of chemistry.

An IIT-M release said the award was in recognition of his contributions to the theory of electron transfer processes at various interfaces using thermodynamic and statistical mechanical models for de-mystifying a large class of experimental observations and for applications of conducting polymers to electrochemical supercapacitors and biosensors.

It said Prof Sangaranarayanan along with his research group has been analysing various fundamental questions on the thermodynamic and microscopic analysis of electrochemical systems.

Further, statistical mechanical modelling of electrical double layer, non-equilibrium thermodynamics of charge transport processes, supercapacitors, and biosensors were among his other significant contributions.UNI GV CS1705
