Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati and South Dakota Mines, a university in the United States, are working together on a joint project. An agreement has been made between the two universities so that they can share resources, get more money, and do research that isn’t just about one thing. 2D materials and biofilms could be used in the medical field, energy, and farming.
- The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati is teaming up with South Dakota Mines, a university in the United States, to do joint research on two-dimensional (2D) materials and biofilms with applications in medicine energy, and agriculture.
- Both universities have struck an agreement to pool resources, increase funding, and engage in multidisciplinary research.
- The research on 2D materials and biofilms, according to IIT Guwahati, has applications in the medical field, including anti-cancer, antibiotic, and other drugs.
- It can aid in the development of novel energy generation and storage technologies.
- According to IIT Guwahati, the discovery can prevent corrosion and maintain the durability of infrastructures such as steel bridges, ships, and buildings.
There are two-dimensional materials that can be used for energy and farming. The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati and South Dakota Mines, a US university, are working together to research these materials. An agreement has been made between the two universities to share resources, get more money, and do research that crosses different fields.
According to a statement from IIT Guwahati, the research on 2D materials and biofilms could be used in the medical field to make anti-cancer, antibacterial, and other medicines. It could be used to develop new ways to make and store energy. The research could help farmers get more yields by protecting and nourishing their crops. This is how it works:
IIT Guwahati says that the research could also keep steel bridges, ships, and buildings from rusting, which would make them last longer.
Also, new businesses in any of these fields could be started due to the collaboration, the statement said.
Researchers and graduate students at IIT Guwahati can use world-class, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment at the Central Instrumentation Facility and the Center for Nanotechnology with the help of experts from the school. This collaboration between the IITG and Mines will be good for everyone because it will help us all. To move us forward and benefit society, we need to use many different skills and talents in our research. That’s what a professor at IIT Guwahati, Tapas Kumar Mandal, told me.
