Dr. V. Yegnaraman is currently heading the Electrodics and Electrocatalysis division of the Central Elerctrochemical Research Institute, Karaikudi. He passed M.S c in Chemistry from the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. Later from the same university, he obtained his Ph.D. degree for his studies on “Exponential relaxation techniques for corrosion rate determination”. He has more than three decades of research experience in the areas of electroanalytical chemistry, modified electrodes and electrochemical sensors.
He has been associated with the know-how development for electrochemical marking of metals, indigenous reference electrode for ECG measurements, Ag/AgCl electrodes for ELFE sensor, electrochemical sensors for the estimation of antimicrobial agent in healthcare formulations and glycated hemoglobin in blood samples. He has more than 65 publications in peer-reviewed/SCI journals and has four Indian patents. He teaches B.Tech. and M.Tech. students in Electrochemical Engineering of Anna University. He was awarded Exchange Fellowship to visit CNRS (France, 1990), Raman Research Fellowship to work in Rutgers University (USA, 1995) and INSA-DFG Fellowship to work in Kurt-Schwabe Institute (Germany, 2007). He has served as Secretary and later as Vice-President of the Society for Advancement of Electrochemical Science and Technology (SAEST). He is a Life Fellow of SAEST. He has rendered editorial service to journals, Bulletin of Electrochemistry, Trans SAEST, Current Titles in Electrochemistry.
