There are many interesting properties of magnetic nanoparticles that can be exploited in a range of applications, such as gas sensors, catalysis, EMI, energy storage, biomedicine and nano fertilizers. The focus of his research was on magnetic materials and semiconductor materials for gas sensors, moisture sensors, bioactive nano fertilizers and biomedical applications. For gas sensors and biomedical applications, he works on spinels and metal oxides for the last time decays. In reputed international journals, he has published 90 articles and attended numerous scientific meetings related to his field of research and he works together with a great researcher from the world's renowned universities. The materials researchers were more drawn to his published papers and they cited his articles in their study results. In the last 5 years, his papers have earned 1419 citations with a 26 h-index. He always periodically reviews, reads, and writes papers on materials and their applications. In addition, he serves as a reviewer for a variety of Elsevier, RSC, ASP, AIP, Springer, IOP and ACS journals. For his continuous contribution, he has received an excellent and respected reviewer award from different journals. To serve the scientific community, he is really involved in serving as a reviewer and editor.
