Portable, user-friendly, low cost electrochemical toy - LapPot
A basic, easily fabricated low-cost potentiostat coupled with user-friendly software that makes it an effective tool to study electrochemistry in low resource centers such as an undergraduate laboratory.
Curd strip that can set customized and consistent quality curd anytime anywhere!
CSIR-CSMCRI has developed a curd strip that can be used to set curd of uniform quality and consistency, and allows for easy customization in the flavour profile and nutritional value of the curd.
Cost-effective process for manufacturing gamma-valerolactone from Levulinic Acid
CSIR-CSMCRI has developed an improved selective process for the preparation of γ-valerolactone (Gvl) by catalytic hydrogenation of biomass-derived levulinic acid (LA). The disclosed process renders excellent yield (100%) under mild reaction conditions within a short reaction time.
Novel degradable polyoxalates from renewable monomers for coating and film applications
CSIR-NCL scientists have invented novel, bio-derived polyoxalates that can be tailored to control the degradation kinetics, and can be a faster degrading substitute to polylactic acid.
