Dr. Abhijit P. Deshpande

Research focus

Our research interests are in understanding of polymeric systems, more specifically their aggregation and gelation behaviour. We use rheology as a probing tool to investigate polymer blends, sulfonated polymers, crosslinked hydrogels, supramolecular / living polymers and polymeric composites.

These polymeric systems are being investigated for their application as electrolytes, electroactive materials, biomaterials and rheological modifiers. Therefore, we also examine structure-property relations in these materials.

A set of video lectures on “Rheology of Complex Materials” are available, through NPTEL. You can see the videos through: NPTEL coursepage

This coursepage also provides transcripts of the lectures:  Module-wise lecture plan
