Title: Sol-Gel Mesoporous Silica Aerogels and Bio Hybrids for Functional Applications
Author: Smitha, Sasidharan; Dr. Warrier, K G K
Abstract: The thesis covers a systematic investigation on the synthesis of silica aerogels and microspheres with tailored porosity, at ambient conditions by varying the experimental parameters as well as using organic templates. Organically modified silica-gelatin and silica-chitosan hybrids were developed for the first time using alkylalkoxysilanes such as MTMS and VTMS. Application of novel silica-biopolymer antiwetting coatings on different substrates such as glass, leather and textile is also demonstrated in the thesis.
