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.

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).
A newly synthesized crystalline, chemically stable material, belonging to the class of crystalline porous organic polymers with permanent porosity and highly ordered structures, could enhance energy density of found to be ideal as a cathode for Li-S batteries and make them more efficient.
A research team under the leadership of Prof. Tanusri Saha Dasgupta at the S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, an autonomous institution of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) focused their computational research on 2-D quantum materials, which are materials with confined geometry in one of the directions. 2-D materials are important as they are easier to assimilate in devices.
