Dr. Anupam Agarwal

Associate Professor & Head of the Department, Chemistry and Biochemistry


Dr Anupam Agarwal is an Associate Professor of Chemistry in Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Sharda University, Greater Noida, India. She obtained her Ph.D. degree on the topic “Synthesis, Mechanistic Interpretation and Kinetic Study of 2,4,5-Trichloroaniline Phosphate Esters” in Chemistry from Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Agra, India.  In 2009 she joined Western University, Ontario, Canada as Post-Doctoral Fellow. There she performed and led research on the applications of nanomaterials in water remediation, agriculture and catalysis and got international recognition in this area. There she also developed the modified protocol based on well-established OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) protocol to evaluate the leaching characteristics of Vive Nano's nanoformulated active ingredients. In 2010 she joined the Sharda University. In addition to teaching UG and PG students, she guides UG, PG and PhD students in the area of synthesis, characterization and applications of industrially important classes of materials.
