Prof. Alka Sharma, born in a family of Engineers in Rajasthan, graduated with Chemistry Honors and doctoral degree in Electrochemistry, has 30 years of academic and research experience as faculty, Department of Chemistry, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur.
Her major research thrust areas: Corrosion Science; Eco-fabrication of nano-structured materials, industrial & eco-remediation applications; innovative materials focus on eco-sustainability. With 50 research papers publications to her credit, she has also authored 2 book chapters published from renowned internationally acclaimed publishing houses, namely, Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim, Germany (2012) & IGI Global, Hershey, Pennsylvania (USA) (2014) and four book chapters for UG-Chemistry text books. Besides, she has also contributed for UGC-MHRD e-PG-Pathshala Project (2014) as content writer in Environmental Sciences (Chemistry) and prepared a module on Aquatic redox Chemistry (https://epgp.inflibnet.ac.in/Home/ViewSubject?catid=14) and as Editor, brought out TWO volumes of prestigious Annual Magazine “Bhagirathi” of multi-faculty prestigious University Maharani College, UoR, Jaipur (2015-16 & 2016-18 – combined volume of two academic sessions).
As MHRD-DIC-course coordinator of Innovation in Material Sciences for Inclusive Development, her proclivity is to bring out some prototype via innovation & design in material science for environmental-remediation & other industrial sectors, viz., non-toxic lead-free-soldering materials; nano-composites adsorbent to eradicate pollutant; nano-coated corrosion impeders, etc.
As an innovative remedy to eradicate toxicity in environment, a Patent has been filed on her findings (application No.202211035057 A; Date of filing of Application: 18/06/2022; Publication Date: 08/07/2022 in Patent Journal).
