MALKOLAK INSTITUTE OF NANOSCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (MINT) , HYDERABAD.

MALKOLAK INSTITUTE OF NANOSCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (M-INT),Hyderabad is a well known focus point for research professionals from various sectors of research due to many well established academic universities and institutions, research laboratories and pharmaceutical industries. Most of the institutes have developed their own infrastructure and facilities to meet their research efforts at different levels. However, many institutes and laboratories are still suffering due to lack of facilities to ensure their research, especially in the area of nanoscience and technology, as highly sophisticated instruments and technologies are required to process and characterize the nanomaterials for techno-commercial applications. Hence, there is a growing demand to develop a unique platform for industry, academic and scientific community to identity their research interests. Henceforth, we have aimed to establish an individual center for nanoscience and technology to recommend distinctive proposals under one umbrella for young researchers and academic professionals to achieve their research dreams.
MINT is being conceptualized aiming at advancing knowledge in nano-science and technology which involves research and development of nano-materials such as multi wall carbon nano-tubes (MWCNT), nano particles such as SiO2, Al2O3, TiC, SiC, SiCN, BCN, TiCN etc. Further aim is to produce high strength machine and instrument parts and ceramic components by the processes such as thermal sintering or injection molding and designing complex devices using nano particles for specific applications. Besides which the institute also imparts technical training in the application of nano technology for industrial production, offer technology know how to desirous entrepreneurs and offer guidance to research scholars in PhD programmes.
