Primary office:
2444 LEEP2


Dr. Rajkumar Kore is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher with Dr. Mark Shiflett’s research group since May 2018. His current research interests are development of ionic liquids (IL) and zeolite for catalysis, separation, etc. Prior to joining Dr. Shiflett’s group, Dr. Kore worked as a postdoctoral research scientist with Prof. Robin D. Rogers group at The University of Alabama from Nov 2014 to April 2018. There, he worked on multiple IL-based projects and led a team of Industrially sponsored project (from Reliance Industries) and developed several homogeneous as well as heterogeneous ILs and used for catalysis and separation process. Dr. Kore completed his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar with Prof. Rajendra Srivastava, from 2010 to 2014. His doctoral study was primarily focused on “development of IL as well as porous materials like hierarchical zeolite for catalysis”. Prior to his Ph.D., he worked as a research assistant on development of continuous process for biodiesel in the Indo-US project with Dr. D. Srinivas in National Chemical Laboratory Pune from 2009 to 2010. He has 23 research articles (with 540 citations), and 4 US patents, and few more work under review.
