Structural Tuning of MIL-53 (Al) to enhance CO2 uptake and Selectivity
Large pore form
Narrow pore form
Activation of MIL-53(Al)
at 493 K under vacuum
•CO2 adsorption at >1 bar and 293 K
•CO2 desorption under vacuum at 293 K
Why MIL-53(Al) ?




Novelty


High temperature stability (up to 750 K)
Does not degrade upon exposure to moisture
Low enthalpy of adsorption
Exhibits structural transformation
Effect of adsorption history on the structural transformation of MIL-53(Al)
Narrow pore tuned from of MIL-53(Al) exhibits four fold enhancement (from
0.42 to 1.75 mol kg-1) in CO2 uptake at 0.17 bar and 293 K. It also show
almost infinite selectivity for CO2 over CH4, N2, CO and O2 at sub-atmospheric
pressure and 293 K
Membrane for CO2 Capture from Flue Gas
Highlights
• Novel poly(vinyl alcohol)-poly(vinyl pyrolidone) blend
membranes with amine carrier were synthesized for CO2
capture
• Highest CO2/N2 selectivity of 398 and CO2 permeance of 40
GPU were obtained

SAW sensors are MEMS devices which use modulation of surface acoustic waves to sense
mass loading, small size, low power. Applications in resonators, sensors, actuators & signal
processing.

Replacing sensing film by pillars leads to unusual mass loading when the resonance frequency of the pillars is close to
resonance frequency of the device. Unusual mass loading characteristics at three resonance modes of the pillars.

• Center of Excellence
– Department of Civil Engineering
• Integrated Land use Planning and Water Resources
Management
• For hazard free development in hills
– Technology for improving population carrying capacity
•
Optimal Ecological Management Practices
(EMPs) has been developed to enhance hazard
free carrying capacity
– Single ownership: OPTEMP-LS
– Multiple ownership:OPTEMP-LM
• Pilot project implementation in collaboration with
government depts. and people has started

Managing dynamic river like Brahmaputra
under climate change impacted water
scenario is extremely challenging
– Temp increase by 0.5 to 1.0 degree
– Precipitation increase up to 20%
– Shifting of Monsoon
Homogeneous clustering to reduce
uncertainty in Climate Change Prediction
Indigenous River Model BRAHMA
(Braided River Aid: Hydrodynamic and
Morphological Analyzer) is developed and
applied with Optimization Module

• New Delhi, May 1, 2014
– IIT Guwahati has shown the way to the new siblings
• The young IIT from Assam has brought cheer to
Indian academic institutions
– Occupying a place among the top 100 YOUNG universities published by
London-based Times Higher Education (THE) magazine
•
Young – under 50 years of age
– Placed 87th in the ranking that analysed 800 new-breed universities from
29 countries, including the US and the UK.
• The magazine has started a separate ranking for
universities two years ago
– For below 50 years of age
– Suggest which institutions have the potential to become the
next generation’s Harvard or Oxford
Stratagem (Improvement of Rank)
•Research focus: Modern Manufacturing; Nanotechnology; Cancer
Therapeutics; Creating new Fuels and Improved Energy Storage Systems;
Improving Himalayan Habitat; Control of Flood and Land Erosion;
Hydrology; Road and Infrastructure; etc.
•New-Pedagogy, such as, Flipped Learning and Education 3.0 have appeared in
teaching strategies
• Group work is an essential part of this new style of learning and classes have
to be designed to engage students in group work as much as possible.
•The strategy ensures success of Outcome Based Learning:
•Graduates will demonstrate basic knowledge in mathematics, science
• and engineering
•Graduates will demonstrate the ability to design and conduct experiments,
• interpret and analyze data, and report results
Community Outreach
a)
IIT Guwahati is the mentor Institute for IIIT Guwahati and IIIT Manipur
b)
IIT Guwahati is helping NIT Meghalaya and NIT Sikkim on several academic
aspects of institute-building
c)
IIT Guwahati is associated with IIM Shillong
d)
IIT Guwahati is the mentor Institute for CIT Kokrajhar
e)
IIT Guwahati (RuTAG) has successfully set up a pilot project on production of
Muga Silk fabric with power loom at the Export Promotion Industrial Park (EPIP) ,
Guwahati. Muga Silk is one of the costliest fabrics in the world obtained from
Antheraea Assamensis.
f)
IIT Guwahati (RuTAG) has developed a low cost machine for
production of compressed feed block fortified with micro
nutrients to supplement the feed for Yaks and Mithuns
(only available in Arunachal, Nagaland and Manipur)
g) Construction of Flyovers and laying Rail Track in N-E states
g) IITG is eager to start special MS program for the College Teachers of North East
Education is
the manifestation
of perfection
already in man
and character
is the test of that
manifestation
