Physical chemistry, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, reaction kinetics, surface and colloid chemistry.
Research mainly heavy metal on remediation of water bodies and sewage treatment. Exploring various ways of exploiting industrial effluent. Development of new, efficient and more affordable clean-up technologies for the treatment of large volumes of water contaminated with these heavy metals and other contaminants. Investigating the capacity of various adsorbents using Batch and column experiments. Construction of efficient effluent clean up stream(s) that could offer a desired solution to industrial effluent disposal. Environment chemistry, especially on the effects of heavy metals on the population and the safety of the boreholes.
