Abstract:
The present work is aimed to establish the utility of CuO nanorods in diversefields; from photocatalysis toantimicrobial applications. The CuO nanorods obtained via facile precipitation process (without any surfactant/ligand) depicted excellent photocatalytic activity when examined under natural diffused room light for thecomplete degradation of the organic pollutant, Rhodamine B. Neither any assistance of any oxidants nor anadditional light sources (e.g., with high power, lower wavelength etc.) was required during the whole process.The antibacterial property was also examined for the CuO nanorods. Effects on the microbial growth werenoteworthy; the maximum inhibition zone of 37 mm was noted against the Gram-negativeE. coli. The mostsignificant effect of the nanorods was depicted in the reduction of 99% ofE. coli, 98% ofS.flexneriand 93% ofS.aureuscells. The suitable activity response of the nanorods establishes the efficacy of the room temperaturesynthesis process

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
