A R M Nabiul Afrooz

My general interests are in aggregation, deposition and transport mechanisms of metallic nanoparticles. I am also interested in fundamental understanding of the role of physical attributes of metallic nanoparticles in their interaction with microbial population. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Saleh since January 2010.


Currently I am working on following projects:

» Investigation on aggregation kinetics of gold nanoparticles having different physical characteristics and understanding the underlying science behind these difference.

» Probing into the aggregation kinetics of copper nanoparticles in different solution chemistry

» Toxicity of gold nanoparticles on pseudomonas arigonosa: a quest to separate physics from chemistry
