311. Justification for the manpower requirement


The salaries will be used for recruiting two students to do PhD (Rs. 18000/- per month, per student x 12 months = Rs. 2,16,000/- per students annually, for the first two years and, Rs. 20000/- per month, per student x 12 months = Rs. 2,40,000/- per students annually, for the third year). One of them will work on nanoparticle modeling and simulation techniques, developing new hybrid models to address issues of anisotropic particles, reaction and nucleation in large single molecules like dendrimers and specifically adapting existing models for optimizing Ag-AC systems.
The second student will exclusively focus on synthesis and characterization of Ag nanoparticles of controlled size, shape and composition. Colloidally stable and biocompatible Ag samples will be embedded by him to make Ag-GC composite for antibacterial tests, leading to a filter design. A combined synergistic approach between these two students and the PI, handling modeling and experimental parts of the work, respectively, will accelerate towards the goals of the work.

351. Justification for the proposed equipment
High temperature furnace with controller: Synthesis and impregnation of nanoparticles requires heating to a high temperature with a controlled heating rate and maintaining a constant temperature during reaction. A furnace with a PID controller is necessary for this.
Fluorescence spectrometer: It is needed to measure cell viability. For example, the signal from SYTOX green nucleic acid stain is proportional to the number of cells that have lost membrane integrity. So it will directly quantify the cell death or inactivity and rank the relative efficacy of antibacterial properties of different Ag-GC composites. In addition, an anionic dye (sulforhodamine 101) measures total protein by forming complexes with basic amino acid residues. Fluorescence spectrometry technique can be used to detect changes in cell size or population over a range of 100 to more than 100,000 cells.
Homogenizer: This is required for making dispersions and emulsions of two immiscible liquids, which will be directly useful in synthesizing Ag nanoparticles and for further impregnation. For example, a homogenizer can produce emulsions of quite monodisperse droplets of a well-controlled droplet diameter. Thus one can systematically vary droplet diameter and hence diameter of nanoparticles (synthesized in emulsion droplets), to study its effect on amount of Ag impregnation and its antibacterial properties.
Constant temperature circulator: One can maintain reaction temperature between -20 °C to 100 °C, by using a circulating heating/cooling water bath, thereby studying the effect of reaction temperature on nanoparticle synthesis. Lower temperature synthesis will result in almost no aggregation of particles, enhancing surface area of Ag for enhanced contact with bacteria.
Refrigerator: Many chemicals and samples for further analysis (like dendrimer, nanoparticle dispersions) need controlled temp. storage at low temperatures. So a refrigerator is essential.
Sonicator: It is necessary for making stable dispersions of particles for any analytical sampling, and TEM sample preparation for imaging particle size and shape.
