About Me:

I, Dr. Vinuth M, working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry, NIE North campus, Mysore.I work in the area of preparation of clay minerals, remediation of environmental toxicants like Cr, Ar and Mo etc. using Fe(II) and Fe(III)‒Mt in aqueous medium and detailed study on removal of toxic metals. Furthermore, having sufficient knowledge in preparation of MWCNTS composites with ferrite nanoparticles and their role in degradation.

I have also expertise in the preparation of nanoparticles through Microwave method, their application in photo catalytic activity and detailed study on optical, structural and magnetic properties of few elements and thin films.

Further, I have published more than 25 research articles in peer-reviewed international journals, associated with most preferred publishing houses, such as Elsevier, Springer, Taylor and Francis, Willey, VBRI press and so forth. In addition, I have presented more than 25 research findings in National and International conferences and seminars.

In addition to teaching, I have taken up responsibilities in NIEIT which includes Anti-ragging squad member, Class monitoring committee member, Research and development member, Data Coordinators committee member etc. Further, I am a recognized research supervisor in VTU-Belagavi. I am looking for good students to guide under my supervision.
