  • Areas of Research :

    IRPA 09-02-02-0032-SR0032/04-04 " Nanomaterial Synthesis and Applications Using Glycolipids" (Grant for 2002-2004 , 3 years-now extended to March 2006).We are applying for another SR project ( extension of this project , concentrating on Organic-Inorganic Nanoparticles) .

    The projects covers : nanomaterial synthesis ( microemulsion , micellar and LC templating , electrochemical and mechanical alloying) , glycolipid chemical synthesis and characterisation of phases formed from glycolipids ; nanofabrication and materials modification using nanotechniques ; thermodynamics and rheology of lyotropic liquid crystal phases as well as non-equilibrium structures such as myelin figures and colloidal-gas aphrons.

    Previously (since 1995) I have been involved in 5 IRPA projects , one of which I am the Head , one CICHE Project (Coordinator) in 1994-96 and one Malaysian Toray Science Foundation (Head) in 1992-94.

  • Current Projects and Grants :

    Nanomaterial Synthesis and Applications Using Glycolipids under IRPA 09-02-02-0032-SR0004/04-04 (Head of Project 4).-Head of Programme is Prof. Dr. Rauzah Hashim , Dept. of Chemistry , U.M. Publications under this project since Jan .2002 totalled 52 (including proceedings).We  targeted 20 International and 50 (the rest) by Dec 2004.

    Scientific Advisor for this project is Prof. Dr. Peter Laggner, Director Inst. of Biophysics and X-ray Research (Graz, Austria) , a member of the Austrian Academy of Science and  Board of Director , European Inst. of Nanotechnology as well as Director of SAXS facility at the Electrra Synchrotron, Trieste , Italy. He had visited us twice , the last in Dec. 2003.

    Visitors in our project include Prof. Dr. Muradin Kumakhov ( inventor of Lab Synchrotron Source  and Kumakhov optics) , Director , Inst. of Roentgen Optics , Moscow ( August, 2004) and recently , Prof. Robert Holyst , Director , Inst. of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Science  in Oct. 2004.

    Under this project we have one patent: " Synthesis of Branched Glycolipids and Applications"  (with Prof. Dr. Rauzah Hashim) -filed under PHIM ref. PI 20051074 (now the patent coverage is already worldwide) .Under this patent we claimed up to 10 different applications of the generic glycolipids ( > 60 already synthesised).In 2008 we have another patent with researchers at Univ of Nottingham ( Dr. Khiew Poi Sim)  and in 2011 we are filing a patent on New Method of Nanooxide Materials Productiong Using Microwave Technique.

    So far (since 2003)  I have  graduated more than 40 MSc and Phd students and about 10 MSc (by course) miniprojects. Currently (as of Oct. 2011) I am supervising 9 Phd students and 4 MSc students in UKM  and another 2 Phs students at UPNM.
