Bio: Professor Thomas is the Founder Director and Professor of the  International and university Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and also full professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at the School of Chemical Sciences of Mahatma Gandhi University, India. He is  an outstanding leader with sustained international acclaims for his work in Polymer Science and Engineering, Polymer Nanocomposites, Elastomers, Polymer Blends, Interpenetrating Polymer Networks, Polymer Membranes, Green Composites and Nanocomposites,  Nanomedicine and Green Nanotechnology. Dr. Thomas’s ground breaking inventions in polymer nanocomposites, polymer blends, green bionanotechnological and nano-biomedical sciences, have made transformative differences in the development of new materials for automotive, space, housing and biomedical fields. In collaboration with India’s premier tyre company, Apollo Tyres, Professor Thomas’s group invented new high performance barrier rubber nanocomposite membranes for  inner tubes and inner liners for tyres.Professor Thomas  has received a number of national and international awards which include: Fellowship of the Royal Society of Chemistry, London, Distinguished Professorship from Josef Stefan Institute, Slovenia, MRSI medal,Nano Tech Medal, CRSI medal, Distinguished Faculty Award, and  Sukumar Maithy Award for the best polymer researcher in the country. He is in the list of most productive researchers in India and holds a position of No.5. Very recently, because of the outstanding contributions to the field of Polymer Science and Engineering, Prof. Thomas has been conferred Honoris Causa (DSc) by the University of South Brittany, Lorient, France.  Professor Thomas has published over 650 peer reviewed research papers, reviews and book chapters. He has co-edited 53 books published by Royal Society, Wiley, Wood head, Elsevier, CRC Press, Springer, Nova etc. He is the inventor of 6patents. The H index of Prof. Thomas is 77 and  has more than 25,000 citations. Prof. Thomas has delivered over 300 Plenary/Inaugural and Invited lectures in national/international meetings over 30 countries.He has established a state of the art laboratory at Mahatma Gandhi University in the area of Polymer Science and Engineering and Nanoscience and Nanotechnology through external funding form DST, CSIR, TWAS, UGC, DBT, DRDO, AICTE, ISRO, DIT, TWAS, KSCSTE, BRNS, UGC-DAE, Du Pont, USA, General Cables, USA, Surface Treat Czech Republic, MRF Tyres and Apollo Tyre's.
