Books Authored

1) Chemistry of Natural Products
Sujata V. Bhat, B.A. Nagasampagi, Meenakshi Sivakumar
Publishers Narosa Publishers ,Springer Science & Business Media, 04-Jan-2005 – Science – 840 pages

Preface : During the last few decades, research into natural products has advanced tremendously thanks to contributions from the fields of chemistry, life sciences, food science and material sciences. Comparisons of natural products from microorganisms, lower eukaryotes, animals, higher plants and marine organisms are now well documented. This book provides an easy-to-read overview of natural products. It includes twelve chapters covering most of the aspects of natural products chemistry. Each chapter covers general introduction, nomenclature, occurrence, isolation, detection, structure elucidation both by degradation and spectroscopic techniques, biosynthesis, synthesis, biological activity and commercial applications, if any, of the compounds mentioned in each topic. Therefore it will be useful for students, other researchers and industry. The introduction to each chapter is brief and attempts only to supply general knowledge in the particular field. Furthermore, at the end of each chapter there is a list of recommended books for additional study and a list of relevant questions for practice.

2) Biomaterials, 3rd Edition Published in 2017
Sujata V. Bhat
Publishers Narosa Publishers, New Delhi , Kluwer Press, New York.
Preface: As biomaterials are used in medical devices, meeting needs in such diverse surgical disciplines as ophthalmology, cardiology, neuromuscular surgery, orthopaedics, dentistry, etc., they must have intimate contact with patient’s tissue or body fluids, providing a real physical interface which seriously restricts developments.
This book is written for those who would like to advance their knowledge of biomaterials. The subject matter of the book is divided into twelve chapters dealing with the structure and relationship of biological and man-made biomaterials. The application of these materials for various medical devices, and recent developments in tissue engineering, are also discussed.

Evolution is the quest for improvement, conveniences, more comforts, and better lifestyle. It is often triggered by morphological changes at organic, technological, institutional, and social domains. Such a paradigm shift causes frictional noise where existing systems undergo a rapid change, diminish or vanish. Disruptive innovations belong to this league. While it is said that necessity is the mother of invention disruptive innovation does not necessarily happen due to necessity but sometimes from the need to excel.

Clayton Christensen, in 1995, first postulated disruptive innovation as an ‘innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and the value network, displacing the established market-leading firms, products, and alliances.’ It is any new technology or startup that aims to shake up an industry and alter its competitive patterns. Innovations do happen in every industry but to be truly disruptive an innovation must entirely transform a product or bring an easy solutions to something which was complicated in the past.

This virtual inter disciplinary conference aims to provide a platform for the academicians and researchers across the globe to deliberate and discuss on various creative disruptions in business, science and humanities.  It also aims to provide students a platform to articulate their research thinking in the form of a paper presentation. Through an interdisciplinary approach the web conference aims to analyze the topic from various perspectives. Commerce, science, social sciences, humanities and media have been revolutioned by disruptive innovations and hence the conference hopes to ensure academic engagements in all these domains.
