Rajakumar has been invited to serve in Editorial Advisory Board of “International Journal of Chemical Kinetics”.

Welcome to Prof Rajakumar Group

Prof. Rajakumar's research group focuses on understanding the elementary reactions that happen in both the Troposphere and the Stratosphere of the Earth's atmosphere on one hand and in the combustion on the otherhand. The absorption measurements of the radicals originating from the oxidation processes of volatile organic compounds via their reactions with hydroxyl radical, chlorine atoms and many such oxidizing species those are important in the Earth's atmosphere, are being pursued. Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) is used as a tool for this purpose. This CRD spectrometer is completely...
