Food, water, and energy securities are interlinked. For example, water is used for drinking, irrigation, and to produce energy. Following are some of the major research areas in SBASSE right at the confluence of food, water and energy.

II. Water

In order to provide clean and safe water for drinking and irrigation, researchers in our Biology and Chemistry Departments have developed certain nanoparticles such as …, which can be used as sensitive probes (sensors) to determine, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the presence of harmful pathogens in drinking water, and microbeads (such as the ones found in face scrubs) for destroying harmful textile dyes.
