Current interests include studies on the oxidation and stabilisation of polyolefins, the antioxidant mechanisms and performance of biological antioxidant in polymers, synthesis of reactive compatibilisers for polymer blends, upgrading properties of polymers by reactive processing techniques, free radical grafting reactions on polymer melts and photo-bio-degradability of polymers. Understanding the effects of the additives and the upgrading on the polymer, studying the additive in the polymer and after extraction by spectroscopic and thermal analyses methods.

Work History

Years Employer Title Department Responsibilities
Years: 2004 to 2011 Employer: Aston University Title: Research Fellow Department: Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry Responsibilities: Current research is on testing biological active antioxidant in polyolefin’s. Those antioxidants were extracted from plants, chemically modified and process in polymers. The behaviour of the polymer in processing, the effectiveness of antioxidants on the polymer stability and the stabilization and anti-oxidation mechanisms were studied. The migrating of the additives together with the long term durability and time control stability are the focus of the current project.
Years: 2002 to 2003 Employer: Greenwich University Title: Research Fellow Department: Applied Science Responsibilities: On the development of new methods to synthesize and control the polymerisation of organic silicon compounds.
