He did his M.Phil from Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad in the field of Corrosion Science. He is life member of various learned societies. He has published fifty articles and six books in the field of corrosion science and engineering. He has produced several Ph.D research scholars under his supervision in the field of corrosion science and engineering. He is studying the effect of corrosive pollutants on materials, assets, health and environment. He has used nanocoating technique for corrosion protection of reinforced steel. UGC has provided financial support for his minor and major projects in the field of corrosion science and engineering. Presently he is engaged in his D.Sc research work in the department of chemistry, Ranchi University, Ranchi, India of course in the field of corrosion science.  

This book provides the information of corrosion of building materials and their protection. Pollutants corrode building materials and they change their physical, chemical, mechanical properties and tarnish facial appearance. This book gives idea about various forms of corrosion which occurs with building materials and analysis of corrosion. This book covers the various corrosion protection techniques of building materials. This book is useful for constructions industries, civil engineers, corrosion engineers, Metallurgical engineering, corrosion consultants, corrosion researchers, UG and PG students.
