Research Work ( B.Tech Thesis )

Molecular Dynamics Simulations of n-Alkanes confined within a Cylindrical Capsule         

Conformations adopted by molecules present in bulk solution are very different from what are observed when they are confined to a much smaller space.  Behavior of these molecules is quite surprising in nanoscale dimensions which are predominant in many biological processes occurring in the human body. The conformational changes and interactions of n-Alkanes encapsulated in a cylindrical capsule and the free energy changes associated with the process are examined.

.Software packages:

  • GROMACS (MD Simulation Package, Computational Chemistry Package)
  • Amber Tools (MD Simulation Package)
  • Packmol (Creating initial input files required for MD Simulation)
  • Visual Molecular Dynamics, Chimera

Work Experience

May 2015July 2015

Summer Intern

CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad

Project: Separation of valuable organic compounds from aqueous and non-aqueous solutions.

Mentor: Dr.S.Sridhar, Senior Principle Scientist, Membrane Separation Laboratory.

  • Worked on the extraction of stevioside from Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni (leaves) through a series of processes which compromise of series of ultra-filtration, micro-filtration and Nano -filtration steps.
  • Using Aspen Plus as a simulation tool, we worked on setting up a distillation column with a main objective of selectively separating Anisole from a mixture of cresols and Phenols.
