KNUST Team

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology

Professor Evans Adei

Research experience

Development and application of computational chemistry techniques, particularly ab initio and density functional theory methods, to study organic and organo-metallic reaction mechanisms.

 

Prof. Adei is the leader of the Ghana team and is responsible for the research and training programme of this project for the Ghana wing. He has primary supervision of the students on the modelling of homogeneous catalysis. His experience as the head of the computational and theoretical chemistry centre at KNUST, and co-I of the Royal Society - Leverhulme project on Molecular Modeling for Energy Efficiency will be very relevant.

Dr. Richard Tia

Research experience

Development and application of computational chemistry techniques, particularly ab initio and density functional theory methods, to study organic and organo-metallic reaction mechanisms.

 

Dr. Tia has expertise in the modelling of homogeneous catalysis and will co-supervise the KNUST student on modelling homogeneous catalysts for the partial hydrogenation of biofuels, which will be synthesised and tested by the UB student. He will also help deliver the computational training programme in KNUST.
