My Ph.D thesis dealt with carbon molecular sieves derived from agro wastes. The feedstocks chosen based on availability and issues in their disposal problems. There will be separate workshop for fabrication works and testing the reactor performance. I have designed and developed a reactor for my thesis work with support of my chairman of advisory committee. With availability of latest instruments in the department and other departments, my quality of research was improved and published in high impact factor journals. I happy to say that I received student fellowship to carry out the research work.
