Welcome to Functional Materials and Electrochemistry Lab at IIT Kharagpur  led by Prof. C.R. Raj

Functional Materials for Electrochemical Applications

Prof. C. R. Raj

Raj’s group is working on interdisciplinary areas of materials electrochemistry and photoelectrochemistry. The research works range from fundamental studies of electrochemical and photoelectrochemical energy conversion and storage to electrocatalytic and bioelectrocatalytic sensing. His group design and synthesize various functional materials and molecular self-assemblies for electrochemical applications. The main focus is to develop new materials for amperometric sensing, oxygen reduction, hydrogen & oxygen evolution reactions and energy storage applications.
