Welcome to the Azam Group!

We are a materials and surface chemistry research group in the department of chemistry at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh. Our multidisciplinary research is focused on the development of new multifunctional materials for energy, health and environment. Multicomponent hybrid materials for achieving increased complexity and functionality in nanoparticles have attracted enormous attention from researchers. These nanomaterials are composed of discrete domains of different components and thus can exhibit the properties of different components in the same assembly. In the Azam group, we synthesize surface-tailored, size-controlled inorganic nanoparticles and polymeric materials as well as investigate their properties and potential applications. We also work on the synthesis of quantum dots (QDs), which are in the range of 2-10 nm size, and their applications in the detection of biomolecules and ions at sub-ppm level.

We welcome enthusiastic researchers, who aim to get hands-on experience in nanomaterials synthesis and characterization, to join our group. Interested Ph.D., M.Phil., and M.Sc. students are requested to contact Dr. Azam.
