Assoc Prof Zaher Judeh
Associate Professor, School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
Asst Prof Zaher Judeh is currently in the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering since 2004. He received his Bachelor degree in Chemistry from Poona University, Master degree in Chemistry from Bombay University and Ph.D. degrees from the University of New South Wales, Australia. His research interests include organic synthesis and catalysis. He has done significant research work and published over 40 international conference and journal papers.
My research interests are in the following areas:

1. Organic synthesis: Reaction mechanisms new methodologies
2. Asymmetric catalysis: Synthesis and use of novel chiral bidentate ligands based on bisisoquinolines focusing on synthesis of enantiomerically pure drug intermediates
3. Ionic liquids: Use as solvents for new reactions
4. Natural product chemistry: Study the synthesis, characterization and bioactivity of Vanicosides
  • Enhancing The Quality And Sustainability Of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Processes Through Continuous Manufacturing And Crystallization Of Pharmaceuticals
US 2013/0035419 A1: Methods for Dispersing Carbon Nanotubes and Compositions Used for the Methods (2015)
Abstract: The present invention refers to a method of dispersing carbon nanotubes in a thermosetting resin. The method comprises: (a) contacting the carbon nanotubes with a dispersant in a solvent to form a dispersion mixture, wherein the dispersant is a graft polymer comprising a polymeric backbone and a side chain grafted to the polymeric backbone; and (b) adding the thermosetting resin to the dispersion solution to form a resin blend. The present invention also refers to a composition used for the method.
