The Course is aimed for college teachers of Chemistry/Applied Chemistry/Materials Chemistry, etc. at BSc/MSc and at research level. It will cover different analytical techniques involved for charac- terization, through lectures and out of which two days will be experimental work at Department of Chemistry, Ravenshaw University with instruments like NMR, FTIR, GC, GC-MS, UV-Visible, fluo- rescence spectroscopy, cyclic voltametry, etc., with illustrative problems. Some advanced topics, and common difficulties faced by students will also be discussed. College/University teachers and research workers with at least a master’s degree in Chemistry/Applied Chemistry/Materials Chemistry etc. are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to College/University teachers.

Topics: There will be courses dealing with, molecular, resonance, lumination spectroscopy and its instrumentation. XPS, UPS, Mossbauer, UV-Visible, NMR Spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electroanalytical techniques, optical activity, surface enhanced Raman scattering, catalytic activity, electronic and nanoelectronic properties, thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction, determination of sur- face acidity and basicity, liquid and gas chromatography, group theory to electronic spectra, appli- cations of symmetry to Raman and IR active bands, non thermal plasma, fast dynamics, ion-solvent interaction, AFM, SEM, magnetic microscopy, Ac susceptibility, Dc magnetometry and susceptom- etry.

Resource Persons: Prof. Ashok Kumar Mishra [IIT Madras], Prof. T Pal [IIT Kharagpur], Prof. Ashutosh Ghosh [University of Calcutta], Prof. Dillip K Maiti [University of Calcutta], Prof. N N Das [Utkal University], Prof G C Pradhan [Utkal University], Dr S P Das [Ravenshaw University] and Dr Subhankar Bedanta [NISER, Bhubaneswar].
