Dr. Someshwar Pola has been working as an assistant professor at the Department of Chemistry, University College of Science, Osmania University since 2018. Previously, he worked as an assistant professor at the Department of Chemistry, Nizam College, Osmania University (2013-2017). He received his B.Sc. from Kakatiya University, M.Sc. from P.G. Center, Mirzapur, Osmania University, and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Kakatiya University, Warangal, Telangana State, India. Dr. Pola worked as a visiting faculty member at the Institute of Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan in 2017. He also worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow (PDF) at the Institute of Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan (2008-2012). During this period, he focused on the synthesis and characterization of organic functional materials towards single-crystal field-effect transistors. During the period of his doctoral research work (2002-2006), he developed various methodologies in inorganic and analytical chemistry. He also has industrial experience in medicinal research and development (AR&D) from GVK Biosciences Pvt. Ltd., Hyderabad, India. Dr. Pola has published over 48 research papers in reputed international and national journals and has one book chapter to his credit. He has also presented research papers at 35 national and 25 international conferences and delivered guest/invited lectures in various colleges/conferences. He is a Life Member of the Society of Materials Chemistry (SMC), Materials Research Society of India (MRSI), Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA), India, and a member of the American Chemical Society (ACS). He is a reviewer for Elsevier, ACS, and RSC journals. He has 8 years of teaching and 20 years of research experience. His research focuses on supramolecular chemistry, solar cell device fabrication studies, organic field-effect transistors, photocatalysis of organic pollutants in the presence of titanates, perovskites, and related semiconductors and metal-organic frameworks. Under his supervision, 6 postgraduate students have completed their dissertation work, 5 Ph.D. students have been awarded, and 8 scholars are currently working for their Ph.D. degree. His research activities are supported by various funding agencies like NSC-Taiwan, UGC, DST, and CSIR, New Delhi, India.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Someshwar Pola

Investigating in the area of perovskite materials and the fabrication of devices for properties in optoelectronics, we have presented a brief outline of perovskite materials. The authors present a fairly comprehensive arrangement of this very active area of research, with its past changes and present position and outlooks. Discussions are presented regarding photocatalysis, fabrication of solar cell devices and their stability, lead-free materials, as well as thermoelectric and piezoelectric applications. In view of the present status of perovskite materials, I am assured that each chapter of the book will be of boundless encouragement for researchers, scientists, and academicians working in this field.
