Prakash Jai

National Institute of Technology (NIT), India.



Dr. Jai Prakash is working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry, NIT Hamirpur. Previously, He worked as ‘INSPIRE Faculty’ in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, India (2016-2018). His Ph. D (2007-2012), carried out at and sponsored by IUAC (formerly, Nuclear Science Center), New Delhi, was awarded by CCS University, Meerut (India). He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at INRS-EMT, Quebec (Canada), Aix-Marseille University (France), Universite Libre de Bruselles (Belgium) and University of the Free State, (South Africa). He has received several National and International scientific awards including DAAD Academic Award (2018), Merit Scholarship Award (ranked# 1) (2017) from Quebec Govt. (Canada), Promising Young Researcher Award (2016) from NRF (South Africa), Prestigious INSPIRE faculty award (2015-2016) and Young Scientist Fast Track (2012) award from DST (India), Guest scientist (2014) from NIMS (Japan), and Senior Research Fellow (2011) from CSIR (India). He has published more than 100 research articles including book/chapters in international scientific peer reviewed journals. Some selected publications in higher impact factor journals are J. Materials Chemistry A & C, ACS Appl. Materials Interface, Carbon, Energy Storage Materials, Molecular System Design and Eng. (MSDE), Adv. Energy Materials etc. have gained attention worldwide. Recently, he has been listed among World’s Top 2% Scientists List created by Stanford University (2021, 2022& 2023). Recently, he was selected as MSDE Emerging investigator (2023). He is serving as guest editor in several journals and also as “Associate Editor” in Frontiers of Environmental Chemistry journal. His major research fields are functional nanomaterials, surface science, ion beam modifications of nanomaterials and Chemistry of materials. His highly interdisciplinary research includes synthesis/characterizations of plasmonic, polymers, metal-oxides semiconductors nanomaterials, their nanocomposites for sensing, solar cell, optical, photocatalysis, SERS related environmental and energy applications.
