The S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences is an autonomous research institute engaged in research in basic sciences. The institute was founded under Department of Science and Technology, Government of India in 1986 as a Registered Society. The Centre was established to honour the life and work of Professor S. N. Bose who was a colossal in theoretical physics and has made some of the most fundamental conceptual contributions in the development of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Statistics. The Centre has emerged as a major institution for research and development in Basic Sciences.

The molecular mechanism behind the effectiveness of N-Acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) and vitamin C, a medical combination used by doctors to treat kidney ailments, has been cracked in research conducted by a team of scientists. This study will help clinically treat chronic kidney ailments more effectively and help pharmaceutical research to develop better medicines.
Researchers have found a new alloy that can act as an effective magnetic refrigerant that can be an alternative cooling agent for minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and meet the global demand for higher energy efficiency for tackling global warming.
Scientists have synthesized a class of porous and crystalline organic materials called covalent organic frameworks (COFs) incorporated with quinone groups and sulphur-containing thiophene groups that can act as efficient and versatile electrodes for pseudocapacitors because of their low density, high stability, and well-defined atomic arrangements.
An inorganic material called Hafnium oxide (HfO2), so far used in optical coatings, may soon find use as efficient memory devices in computers, sensors and sonars as an effective alternative to silicon dioxide (SiO2).
