  Hydrogen storage is one of the main problems, to catalyse wide hydrogen use in transportation, technology and energetics. Composites involving nanostructured carbon species could be the solution for hydrogen storage problem because of their promising surface/volume relation. Not only catalysis and gas ...  Read More

Microscopic and spectroscopic evaluation of SPS sintered aluminium-graphene (Al-Gr) nanocomposites

Vipin Jain; Anil Kumar; Ajay Dhar

Volume 2, Issue 3 , 2017, , Pages 146-151


  Graphene possesses excellent properties such as, high Young’s modulus (1 TPa), high fracture strength (~125 GPa) and extreme thermal conductivity (~5000 W/m/K), therefore, can serve as an ideal reinforcement material for the metal based High Tech structural nanocomposites. In the present work, ...  Read More

Mahima Khandelwal; Anil Kumar; Richa Baronia; Shraddha Tiwari; Avanish K. Srivastava; Surinder P. Singh; Sunil K. Singhal

Volume 1, Issue 1 , 2016, , Pages 14-20


  In the present work we report a facile method for the synthesis of Pt nanoparticles supported reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) nanocomposite by an in-situ chemical reduction. The incorporation of MWCNTs to rGO leads to decrease in agglomeration between rGO sheets ...  Read More
