Anil Kumar's Biography



Anil Kumar, Professor, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay

Anil Kumar is currently a Chair Professor at IIT Bombay, in the Department of Chemistry, Center for excellence in Nanoelectronics, National Center for Photovoltaic Research and Education and National Center for Excellence in Technologies for Internal Security. He also serves as Vice-President Flow Society of India, Secretary Polymer Society of India, Treasures Polymer Processing Academy. His group's research interests are in the area of continuous flow processes and printable optoelectronic devices based on conjugated polymers. In this direction, the main focus is on the development of handheld explosive sensors, electrochromic devices, thin film optoelectronic devices and transparent conductor etc. They have developed a state-of-the-art continuous flow process lab and also conduct regular training programs and workshops in Continuous Flow Process to train the next generation of human resources in this important emerging technology. Based on the processes, he started a company “Sycon Polymers India Pvt Ltd” (http://sycon.in/Home) and another start-up is in pipeline. His group also has developed many technologies including transfer of technology in the domain of handheld explosive sensors and continuous flow processes. For his contribution in this field, he has been awarded with the 2017 NASI-RIL Platinum Jubilee National Award for application-oriented innovations.

Continuous flow process provides a potential alternative to batch synthesis because of its inherent advantages such as very efficient heat exchange, high batch to batch reproducibility, fast mixing, high throughput, safety, and the ability to do multistep telescoping synthesis.  Due to these advantages, these processes have been referred to as the most promising “Green Technology”. In fact, continuous flow processes are projected to be the “CHEMICAL FACTORIES” of tomorrow. Continuous flow processes also provide an “On-Demand” synthesis with complete control over reproducibility, size, shape and these parameters can be achieved at various scales (lab synthesis to pilot to bulk production) with excellent reproducibility. This opens up the opportunity for synthetic chemists to prepare materials with precise control over critical molecular design parameters. It also enables one to carry out material synthesis at higher temperatures that were outside the domain of an organic synthetic lab. We have been exploring continuous flow processes for the synthesis of conjugated polymers, nanoparticles and nanofibers, fine chemicals, catalysis for heterogeneous processes etc. In this presentation, I will review some of the recent advances in these directions and some results from our laboratory.
