This is Amit Gahlaut from IIT Roorkee, India requesting for a position of intern in the coming summers i.e May-July, 2012.
I am currently a 4th year student of Polymer Science and Technology( integrated 5 yr course) at IIT Roorkee.Below is the list of the projects I have completed till date.
Projects completed (till date)
Extensive Work on high performance nano-composite membranes ( with functionalized silica filler ) for Gas Separation and Reverse Osmosis at the K.U.Leuven, Belgium in the department of Bioengineering under the guidance of Asim Laeeq Khan and Dr.Ivo Vankelecom ( research paper under publication process).
worked with Polysulfone, Polyimide, Sulfonated PEEK and poly sulfone acrylamide with nano sized MCM-41 silica filler and MOF( metal organic framework) functionalized with sulfonated groups.
work showed that it is possible to overcome robeson barrier using Mixed matrix membranes.
functionalization of the filler showed upto 70% improvement in the membranes as compared to existing research paper data.
Worked on rubber sheeting reinforced with steel fillers in the form of rods and mesh
at Forech India Ltd., India.
showed the positive effect of using small sized fillers instead of whole length of steel cord.
Worked on natural fiber reinforced composites at IIT Roorkee.
I would request you to kindly go through my resume and my project summaries to analyze my work and hence would hope to receive a favourable response from your side. It would be an honour to work in your research group. If given a chance I would work efficiently and diligently to prove my credibility.
Hoping for a favourable response from your side.
