Materials Science, the most intriguing domain of current research, involves the fundamental properties and characteristics of materials for their applications in diversified areas.We aim in the sub-project at establishing a high quality Materials Science Research Laboratory in the Department of Chemistry, University of Dhaka. To accomplish the objective, the research laboratories in the field of Materials Science will be refurbished and be equipped with state-of-the-art instruments so that the research infrastructure is significantly improved. The quality of research will be enhanced by means of collective efforts from faculty members working in the field of Materials Science through exchange of views, ideas and experiences in seminars, workshops, trainings and discussions and establish long term scientific collaborations with experts and professionals in different universities at home and abroad. New materials of various kinds and functionalities will be developed and their significant properties will be exploited for technological applications.


Design and fabrication of intelligent materials will be targeted to provide firm underpinning for future development. The major outcome of the project will be enhancement of facilities for advanced innovative research by faculty members with research interests in various disciplines of Chemistry and creation of opportunities for postgraduate students in the interdisciplinary field of Materials Science. The project is expected to bring radical changes in the technical and institutional capacity of the Department for postgraduate research programs through effective access to specialized knowledge and information and the state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation. Finally, high quality M. Phil. and Ph. D. programs, national and international inter-departmental and inter-university cooperation, collaboration and academic networking would generate skilled human capital for Bangladesh.
