Anjali Pal Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur India Biography
Biography of Anjali Pal
Dr. Anjali Pal has made original and significant contributions in the arena of science and engineering. Dr. Pal has introduced both treated and untreated laterite soil, a naturally occurring earth’s crust, to remediate arsenic pollution in drinking water. The wonderful results have encouraged her to develop a low cost earthen filter to remove dangerously toxic arsenic (III and V) compounds from water bodies.
Dr. Pal extended the idea of photoreaction on different pollutants to develop several analytical methods having high potential. Photoactivation (both UV and Visible) technique made Dr. Pal famous. Her developed methodology and later on photoreactor fabrication brought her a few international awards (Hall of Fame and R & D-100, USA).
