Text Box: Back to HomeAbout Dr. Anil Kumar Nain, D.Sc.

I, Dr. Anil Kumar Nain, did my Masters in Chemistry from Jamia Millia Islamia (Central University), New Delhi, India in 1992. I completed my Ph.D. degree from Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, India in 1996. I worked as Senior Research Fellow (CSIR) from 1996 to 1998 and Post-Doc Fellow as Research Associate (CSIR) from 1998 to 2003 in the in the Department of Chemistry, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, India.

I worked as Project Officer under the Technical Education Quality Improvement Project (TEQIP) in the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi for one year during 2003-2004.

I worked as Principal Investigator of SERC Fast Track Young Scientist Scheme (a highly prestigious fellowship) of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, New Delhi, India from 2004 to 2007.

I joined as Lecturer in November 2004 and at present I work as Associate Professor (Physical Chemistry) in the Department of Chemistry, Dyal Singh College (University of Delhi), New Delhi, India. I am actively engaged in research and at present working on a major research projects (funded by CCRH). 03 Students had been awarded Ph.D. under my supervision and 04 research students are presently working under my supervision. I have successfully completed 03 major research projects from various funding agencies. So far I have published 130 research papers in indexed refereed journals.

I was awarded the prestigious degree of Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) for my independent research works in the area of Solution Chemistry by University of Allahabad (Central University), Allahabad, UP, India in 2007.

My broad research area of interest is molecular interactions in solution (physical Chemistry). My research work is focused on the study of molecular interactions in industrially important binary/ternary solvent systems and solute-solute and solute-solvent interactions in solutions containing electrolytes/amino acids/carbohydrates/surfactants/drugs by using volumetric, thermodynamic, viscometric, acoustic and conductometric methods. The main objective of work is to establish the relationship between physicochemical/thermodynamic properties and structural properties (interactions) of these multi-component solvent systems.

Recently I have started work on the project entitled, “Physicochemical studies of homoeopathic drug formulations by using volumetric, acoustic, viscometric, optical and conductometric measurements” funded by CCRH, New Delhi.
