Work and Research

My research career began in 2005 during my MSc programme. Between 2005 and now I have been able to develop over five new low-cost materials for removal of chemical pollutants from water. This earned me five prestigious prizes including the AU-TWAS Young Scientist Award; Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS)-Regional Office for Sub-Saharan Africa (ROSSA) Young Scientist Prize in Basic and Applied Science, 2012; SCOPE–Zhongyu Young Scientist Environmental Award, 2012 (Environmental Technological Innovations category); Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) regional Prize for Young Scientist, awarded by TWAS Regional Office for Central & South Asia (TWAS-ROCASA), June 2011.

Research Profiles

Emmanuel Unuabonah

I played a leading role in the establishment of Nigerian Young Academy which is currently playing a leading role in inspiring young scientist in Nigeria through her various activities and programme. In 2013, I started a research group in the University and as the leader of this group we have been able to develop research proposals, one of which have been granted to the group by TWAS while awaiting the outcome of others. Furthermore, the Research group recently won the Dhirubhai Ambani Chemical Engineering Innovation for Resource-Poor People Award category at the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Global Awards, November 2014. In addition to these I am involved in mentoring both undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of applied Chemistry.
