Key Members

Dr. Maqsood Ahmed (Principal Investigator)

 
 
 
Dr. Maqsood Ahmed got his PhD entitled “Ultra high resolution crystallography of small molecules and proteins” from Universite de Lorraine, Nancy, France in 2012. He served in GC University Lahore for one year before joining IUB in September, 2013. CV

Dr. Sajida Noureen (Co-Principal Investigator)

 
Dr. Sajida Noureen became Lecturer in Chemistry in 2005 at University of Sargodha and then moved to IUB in 2007.  She was selected for PhD studies under the Faculty Development Program of the IUB. She earned her PhD from Universite de Lorraine, Nancy, France in 2012. Her worked is focused on the synthesis and characterization of Dye-sensitized solar cells.  
 

Microwave synthesis system

Our home laboratory is equipped with Anton Paar Monowave 400 microwave synthesis system which can synthesis reaction with operating volumes from 0.5 mL to 20 mL at up to 300°C temp. & 30 bar (435 psi) pressure with 850 W Microwave output power at 0 rpm to 1200 rpm Magnetic stirring. With the help of built-in camera a chemist can follow the reaction progress.
