Major/Degree: Molecular and Materials Modeling

BSc: BSc. (Chemistry), 2014, KNUST

Project Title: Homogeneous Transition Metal Catalysts for the Selective Partial Hydrogenation of Biofuels.


Paul: I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry in 2014 from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi-Ghana. I am currently enrolled in KNUST as a postgraduate student in the area of Molecular and Materials modeling focusing on Computational studies on Homogeneous Transition Metal Catalysts for Renewable Energy generation. I also have a pet research interest in Theoretical and Applied Organic Spectroscopy (GC-MS, IR and NMR). I enjoy playing football as well as watching athletics and football during my leisure times.

Major/Degree: Computational Chemistry

BSc: BSc. (Chemistry), 2014, KNUST

Project Title: Homogeneous Transition Metal Catalysts for the Selective Hydrogenolysis of Aryl ethers for Applications in the Selective Depolymerization and Utilization of Lignin


Mary: Mary Chukwufunaiya Mensah. Obtained a BSc in chemistry from Kwame Nkurumah University of science and technology in 2014. Currently enrolled as a postgraduate student in the computational chemistry laboratory of the department of chemistry, KNUST, under the supervision of Prof. Evans Adei and Dr. Richard Tia. Current research is on “computational studies on homogenous catalyzed cleavage of lignin for the generation of biofuel and fine chemicals.” Would love to continue in research especially in the field of renewable energy and maybe do some lecturing particularly in the area of physical chemistry.



Cecil Humphrey Botchway


Major/Degree: Computational chemistry/ Material Science.

BSc: BSc. (Chemistry), 2013, KNUST

Project Title: Mechanistic study of ethanol conversion to hydrocarbons over zeolites perlialite and ferrierite.


Cecil: Cecil WAS awarded a BSc degree in chemistry in June 2013. His work in theoretical chemistry has given him some experience in employing powerful computational techniques to better understand and improve current applications of zeolites as catalysts for renewable energy fuels.
