Utilization of Mining Wastes as Backfill Material for Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) Walls
Generation of mining wastes is a problem that is common to both Australia and India. To support circular economies in both the countries, it is imperative that these by-products are stabilised and reused effectively. One of their potential usage could be as backfill materials that support mechanical...

Rational Design of Carboxylate Supramolecular Complexes for Pyrolysis Bio-oil Valorization
A rational design of porosity has rarely been investigated in this class of carboxylate based supramolecular complexes for their use as catalysts in these bio-oil upgradation reactions. Theoretical investigations using DFT calculations will be performed first for the design of these new catalysts.

Biochemical and molecular characterization of Cytochrome P450 (CYPs) from extremophilic sources and their biotechnological applications
Cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs) are heme-containing monooxygenases, broadly distributed among living organisms, which play crucial roles in natural product biosynthesis e.g. steroids and the degradation of xenobiotics e.g. drug metabolism. P450s are considered amongst the most versatile biocatalysts ...
