Sreejith P. Nandan

Sreejith received his Integrated Bachelor-Master Degree in Chemistry (2016) from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research – Pune (IISER Pune). He was working with Dr. Angshuman Nag for his Master’s thesis on ‘Inorganic perovskite nanocrystals for optical applications’. He then moved to Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), Austria to start his PhD with Prof. Dominik Eder in the department of Molecular Materials Chemistry, where he’s working on strategies to improve the efficiency of heterogeneous photocatalysis using inorganic molecular nanoclusters.

Sreejith’s research interests include molecular metal oxide and sulphide clusters named polyoxometalates (POMs), and polythiometalates (PTMs) respectively, and heterogenizing them onto various functional substrates, particularly for applications in heterogeneous photocatalysis. This approach can then be helpful to bridge the fields of homogenous and heterogeneous (photo)catalysis and to utilize their respective advantages. He is interested in synthesis and investigating the fundamental properties of these nanoclusters with the overall aim to gain control over the heterogenization process.

He is currently involved in the following MMC group projects: Homogeneous-Heterogeneous Photo(electro)catalysis
