Dr. Prajila M (Ph.D)

Assistant Professor




Dr. Prajila is an alumnus of Malabar Christian College and completed her post-graduation in Chemistry in 2007. She completed Ph.D from Department of Chemistry of University of Calicut in 2017. She joined in the PG and Research Department of Chemistry in January 2011. Major research activities include synthesis, characterization and corrosion inhibition study of different types of organic compounds containing heteroatoms towards the corrosion of metals in different environments. Conventional weight loss measurements and electrochemical methods such as potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy were used for the study.
