Brief Biodata

Dr. Bhanu Pratap Singh obtained his B.Tech (Chemical Engineering) in fist division with distinction from Institute of Engineering and Technology, Sitapur Road Lucknow in 2002. He was awarded GATE fellowship in 2002 and did M.Tech (Chemical Engineering) from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 2004. He obtained his PhD degree in 2014 from Indian Institute of Technology; Delhi on Studies on Carbon Nanotubes based Epoxy Composites. After completing M.Tech, he joined CSIR-NPL as Scientist B in 2004. Presently he is working in Physics and Engineering of Carbon Section of Materials Physics and Engineering division as a Senior Scientist.

Dr. Singh research interest is on large scale synthesis of carbon nanostructures (SWCNTs, MWCNTs, Graphene) and its advanced nanocomposites for structural applications, anode materials for Li-ion batteries and efficient EMI shielding materials. He has created a facility for large scale synthesis of multiwalled carbon nanotubes using catalytic chemical vapour deposition and developed variety of its composites of significant improved physical and chemical properties. He has also made significant contribution in the product development based on carbon nanotubes. One of the US patent on the synthesis of SWCNTs has been granted and two no patent on CNT based composites have been filed. He has also carried out exhaustive studies on mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of MWCNT and graphene based polymer composites. Presently he is focusing mainly in two major CSIR- Network project; Development of Advanced Materials for Next-Generation Energy Efficient Devices (D-NEED) and in CSIR-TAPSUN project. Dr. Singh teaches the Masters and Ph.D. level course on Engineering Materials in AcSIR.

More than fifteen students have done their dissertation work for their M.Tech/M.Sc/B.Tech degree under his supervision/co-supervision. Currently three PhD students are working under him.

Dr. Singh has also published more than 65 research articles in high impact factor Journals (Total impact factor > 180) i.e. 5 Articles in Carbon (I.F. - 6.2), 1 article in Nanoscale (I.F. 6.7), 6 articles in Journal of Material Chemistry A (I.F. 6.6, Journal of Material Chemistry), 12 articles in RSC Advances (I.F. 3.7) etc.. These articles are also highly cited (total citations > 1336 with h-index of 20, i10 index of 25 and m-index of 2 as per google scholar data. He has also published 3 chapters in books. He is also recipient of HEAM Young Scientist 2014 Award by Indian Association of Hydrogen Energy and Advanced Materials in 2014 and several best paper and poster awards. He is the member of editorial board of four no of international journals i.e. Journal of Nanomaterials, Journal of Composite and Constituent Materials, International J of Composite Materials and Matrices, International Journal of Polymer Science & Engineering. His biography has been listed in the 2014 Edition of “Marquis Who's Who” in the World. He is the life member of various national societies i.e. Indian Carbon Society, Materials Research Society of India, The Society for Polymer Science, India. He is the regular reviewer of various high impact factors international journals i.e. Nanoscale, J of Material Chemistry C, RSC Advances, Nanoscale Research Letters, Journal of Taiwan Institute of Chemical Engineers, Applied Physics A etc.
