Omvir Singh is presently working as Senior Research Fellow at CSIR-Indian Institute of Petroleum, Dehradun. His core areas of interest are Heterogenous Catalysis and Organic reactions transformation. He has published various research papers in international journals.

Research Interests:

1. Pore size engineering of porous nanocatalyst.

2. Study the interaction of CO2 with amine and organic reactants using ZIF as a single atom catalyst.

3. Direct conversion of aromatics hydrocarbon(BTX) from non-edible seed oil or used cooking oil.

4. production of value-added chemicals from renewable sources biomass, bio-oil.

Research Expertise:

1. Nanomaterials (novel surfcant for zeolite, Silica, Metal, Metal oxides, MOF) synthesis using sol-gel, hydrothermal, nucleation-growth, self-assembly, and microwave assisted techniques.

2. Material characterizations using SEM, TEM, XPS, XRD, GCMS, N2 sorption, TGA, UV-DRS, FT-IR, and solid state NMR.

3. Catalysis (Liquid phase, Gas-phase), batch and flow reactions, online monitoring by GC-MS.

4. High-pressure reactor for catalysis and synthesis purposes.

5. Synthesis of single atom heterogeneous nano-catalyst for various applications.
