Carleton Chemistry professor P.R. Sundararajan recently returned from India where he is part of a research collaboration between Carleton University and Anna University in Chennai, India.

The collaboration, which is now in its sixth year, is headed in India by Professor M.S. Sarojadevi of Anna University and is funded by the Shastri Indo-Canada Institute, the Commonwealth Scholarships Program of Foreign Affairs Canada and NSERC. Seven graduate students from India have spent six months to a year in Professor Sundararajan’s lab at Carleton. Their research is in the area of polymers for high temperature applications.
