Major/Degree: Chemistry, Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria

BS: Chemistry, Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria

Project Title:


Bio: Oluwasegun Emmanuel Olaoye, born in Lagos, Nigeria, is a PhD candidate with particular interests in Catalysis, Solutions Thermodynamics, Dye-Surfactants Interactions and Solution Kinetics. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria and a Master’s degree in chemistry from this same University. Before commencing his PhD programme at the University of Botswana, Gaborone, he had worked as a Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant at Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. There, he was able to investigate the molecular interactions of mixed surfactants systems and kinetic study of the effect of a bleach activator on the fading of triphenyl methane dyes.

He is presently working on catalysts design for the partial hydrogenation of highly unsaturated bio-fuels.
