In summary, a magnetic core-shell-chitosan nanocomposite was synthesized. A rapid, simple, agglomerate-free method was reported for the production of monodisperse gold-coated Fe3O4 nanoparticles using biopolymer chitosan as a stabilizing agent. Core-shell magnetic Fe3O4-gold-chitosan nanostructures show a great potential for biotechnological and biomedical applications in the near future, especially for biodetection and bioimaging, drug delivery, and magnetic bioseparation.

TiO2 nanofibers were synthesized using electrospinning [Jamil et al Ceramics International 38 (2012) 2437–2441]. The nanofibers were polycrystalline and porous in nature having average diameter and length of ~150 nm and 200 µm, respectively. Fig. 1 (a) and (b) shows scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM) image of TiO2 nanofibers, respectively. The bandgap of the nanofibers lies in optical range ˃ 3.2eV. Which showed relatively low photocatalytic degradation of toxic textile dyes (Fig. 2). To improve it photocatalytic activity we embedded Mn0.5Co0.5Fe2O4 nanoparticles into TiO2 nanofibers. Which showed improved photocatalytic activity for the degradation of toxic organic compound (Fig. 2). We are now investigating the effect of photocatalytic water splitting for hydrogen evolution. It is expected that these heterostructure nanofibers will show improve photocatalytic activity for hydrogen evolution via water splitting.


Gabriela V. Martins studied Chemistry in University of Porto and for the last 10 years has been developing scientific work as a researcher. She started with modification and characterization studies of biopolymers for biomedical applications, mostly their behavior on the interface material-biological matrix. During that time, she experienced the need to understand reaction and interaction phenomena in the nano-scale. So, she is currently a PhD student under the Doctoral Programme “Nanotechnologies and Nanoscience” and her PhD program encloses the development of new sensing devices for sustainable point-of-care platforms targeted for the detection of the most relevant biomarkers of oxidative stress in cancer disease.

Dr. Shah Mohd Ashraf after completing doctorial studies in Condensed Matter Physics, was appointed as Assistant Professor in National Institute of Technology Srinagar in year 1999. Here, Shah embarked upon new research programme, pioneered the synthesis of broad range of nanomaterials and established World Bank Funded Research Centre (Special Centre for Nanosciences) and laid the foundations to learn the new sciences-Nanotechnology in early twenties. In year 2009, shah moved to Middle East on deputation for a short period of two years and published book titled, "Principles of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology" with Dr. T. Ahmad, an eminent Chemist. Dr. Shah is teaching Nanotechnology, Materials Science and Materials Characterization from the last two decades and is actively engaged as reviewer /editor of many scientific journals. Shah has authored more than 75 international peer reviewed scientific papers in National and International journals and has written 5 Books on Nanotechnology and many Book Chapters with reputed international publishers. In his research, he has targeted bio-compatible and energy harvesting nano-materials, which has applications in day to day life. Shah has been awarded two major projects by the Govt of India under Nano-Mission and leadership qualities in taking lead role in innovative programmes have been acknowledged on many occasions. Shah has delivered invited talks in number of international forums. Dr. shah is also a member of many science academies and societies and his work has been cited by number of scientific reporters as well as scientific media. Organiser and Chair of several national and international symposia, schools and conferences which includes 3rd Int. Conference on "Nanotechnology for Better living" from 25-29 May 2016 in collaboration with IIT Kanpur. In his spare time, Dr. Shah is regularly organising INSPIRE internship programme launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India for the bright and genius students of the Kashmir Valley, which aims to attract talented students for the study of Science and Technology in early age which ultimately will bring peace across the globe.
