    Summary : CNR Rao .. the greatest

    CNR Rao
    Who is Prof. CNR Rao ??

    Chintamani Nagesa Ramachandra Rao FRS, also known as C.N.R. Rao (born 30 June 1934),
    He is 80 year old Indian genius in The field of chemistry who got
    Bharat Ratna recently for his path breaking
    research in nano science which will help to eliminate diseases like cancer & AIDS completely.

    Professor Rao has been awarded the Padma Shri (1974) and Padma Vibhushan (1985) by the Government of India, as well as the Karnataka Ratna by the Karnataka State Government. On November 16, 2013 Government of India declared that it would confer the Bharat Ratna on Prof. Rao.

    Dr. Rao has Honorary Doctorates from 60 Universities worldwide.

    He has received Honorary Doctorates from many Universities such as Bordeaux, Caen, Colorado, Khartoum, Liverpool, Northwestern, Novosibirsk, Oxford, Purdue, Stellenbosch, Universite Joseph Fourier, Wales, Wroclaw, Notre Dame, Uppsala, Aligarh Muslim, Anna, AP, Banaras, Bengal Engineering, Bangalore, Burdwan, Bundelkhand, Delhi, Hyderabad, IGNOU, IIT Bombay,Kharagpur,Delhi and Patna, JNTU, Kalyani, Karnataka, Kolkata, Kuvempu, Lucknow, Mangalore, Manipur, Mysore, Osmania, Punjab, Roorkee, Sikkim Manipal, SRM, Tumkur, Sri Venkateswara, Vidyasagar, and Visveswaraya Technological University.

    He was awarded the Hughes Medal by the Royal Society in 2000, and he became the first recipient of the India Science Award, instituted by the Government of India, for his contributions to solid state chemistry and materials science, awarded in 2004.

    Prof Rao have written 45 scientific books & 1500 research papers . It is estimated with Prof Rao’s nano science theory human life could
    be extended on a average by 10 years.

    Rao is currently the National Research Professor, Linus Pauling Research Professor and Honorary President of Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research,Bangalore which he founded in 1989. He was appointed Chair of the Scientific Advisory Council to the Indian Prime Minister in January 2005, a position which he had occupied earlier during 1985–89. He is also the director of the International Centre for Materials Science (ICMS).

    Earlier, he served as a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur from 1963 to 1976 and as the Director of the Indian Institute of Science from 1984 to 1994. He has also been a visiting professor at Purdue University, the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge and University of California, Santa Barbara. He was the Jawaharlal Nehru Professor at the University of Cambridge and Professorial Fellow at the King’s College, Cambridge during 1983-1984.

    Rao is one of the world’s foremost solid state and materials chemists. He has contributed to the development of the field over five decades. His work on transition metal oxides has led to basic understanding of novel phenomena and the relationship between materials properties and the structural chemistry of these materials.

    Rao was one of the earliest to synthesize two-dimensional oxide materials such as La2CuO4. His work has led to a systematic study of compositionally controlled metal-insulator transitions. Such studies have had a profound impact in application fields such as colossal magneto resistance and high temperature superconductivity. Oxide semiconductors have unusual promise. He has made immense contributions to nanomaterials over the last two decades, besides his work on hybrid materials.

    Let Professor Rao get the same no.of hits who is contributing to the science field from past 56 years
