ICAR-CIRCOT organising Training on Spectroscopic & Chromatographic Techniques for Material Characterization at Mumbai from November 27-29, 2018 onward

Newer materials are being developed every day for diversified applications and to meet the consumer demand for improved performance. It is true evenfor the basic human needs of food and clothing. Food has to be nutritious and free from harmful substances such as heavy metals and pesticides. Similarly, textiles today not only meet the basic human need for clothing and fulfill various quality parameters but are also expected to have various functional characteristics such as anti bacterial, flame retardant, UV protective etc. The later is achieved by application of various functional finishes and dyes to the fabrics using various auxiliaries and finishing agents in the process. At the same time, textile industries need to adopt
environment friendly processing and fulfill various eco parameters in view of the concern for the environment and safety of the textile users. Spectroscopy and chromatography are the two modern techniques which prove to be very helpful in study and characterization of textiles and materials. Various forms of spectroscopy such as UV- Visible Spectroscopy, FTIR, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) are powerful tools in characterization of any materials. Chromatography on the other hand is a separation tool where compounds of interest present in a complex matrix are separated and then identified and characterized. A thorough knowledge of these methods is very much important for the personnel working in the 
industry, research and for students. This unique training programme on spectroscopic and chromatographic methods for material characterization has been designed by CIRCOT for the benefit of industry personnel as well as researchers to provide them hands on training and to acquaint them with the basics of these techniques and their applications.


  • To acquaint the trainees about basic and advanced spectroscopic and chromatographic methods for the characterization of materials including textiles
  • To demonstrate and to provide hands on training on various analytical techniques
