    Dr. Sanmitra Barman Associate Professor
    • School School of Engineering and Technology
    • Department/Programme Applied Sciences
    • Position (additional roles) Coordinator (Career Services for Higher Studies)
    • Email sanmitra.barman@bmu.edu.in

    Dr. Barman teaches courses such as chemistry, environmental sciences and nanoscience. He was trained during his doctoral studies as a synthetic chemist. He worked in homogeneous catalysis for the synthesis of different chiral functional groups. During his postdoctoral work, he gained experience in supramolecular sensing, medicinal chemistry and catalysis. His current research interests are designing and synthesizing photocatalysts that can undergo oxidation and reduction to synthesize valuable chemicals and environmental remediation. He is also working in photocatalytic proton reduction to produce hydrogen, an efficient source of energy. Apart from teaching and research, he is also looking after international collaboration of the university and assisting students for higher studies abroad.

    Lastly, his current research interest lies in the area of semiconductor-plasmonic coupled materials for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopic sensing of biologically relevant analytes.
