Research overview

Catalysis plays a major role in the production of food, pharmaceuticals and energy. Kumar Resarch Laboratory (KuRLa) is striving in the area of green homogeneous catalysis. The lab is focussed to develop new environmentally-benign and sustainable catalytic processes for the production of industrially useful chemicals from the cheap and inexpensive starting materials using pincer complexes. A significant effort is also being made to develop new chemical hydrogen storgae materials, preferrably liquid of high gravimetric storage capacity for which both dehydrogenation and hydrogenation (of the spent fuel) processes are facile.
