Chemical Sciences

Mallika Pathak is an active researcher in the field of Green synthesis of Nanomaterials and Bimolecular Interactions. She has been able to successfully publish her work in high impact peer reviewed journals (total publications: 12). Also, she is the reviewer of many Journals like Medicinal Chemistry Research, Spectrochimica acta etc. She is a faculty advisor to DU Innovation Projects 2015-16: MH 306 Design of Affordable Water Purification devices using Green and Ecofriendly Silver Nanoparticles and 2013-14: MH 203 Efficacy of natural dyes in dyeing and imparting antimicrobial properties to different textile materials and various Summer Projects. Through these she has been encouraging students to follow an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to learning. Paper emerging from these studies have resulted in two research articles in peer-reviewed journals, 2 full papers in Conference Proceedings besides many oral and poster presentations at national and international conferences.
