Bio

My research interests focus on design and development of polymeric liquid and graphite electrochemical sensors, polymer resin for selective recognition and monitoring of toxic metals. I achieve these by employing molecularly and ion imprinting techniques via non-covalent protocol. I also synthesise superabsorbent polymers for improved liquid absorption and retention capacities via gel and emulsion polymerisations. Characterisation of the polymeric materials is achieved using Scanning Electron Microscopy-SEM, Differential Scanning Calometry-DSC, Thermogravimetric Analysis-TGA, Fourier Infrared Spectroscopy-FTIR and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance-NMR.
