- Dr. Foster Mbaiwa Lecturer - Chemistry
Velocity mapped photoelectron imaging is a remarkably powerful technique that can give insight into atomic and molecular structure and dynamics. In 2011, I completed my dissertation based on the use of this technique to study finite solvation of halides by some common solvents.
- Dr. Tshepo Pheko Lecturer - Chemistry
Dr. Pheko's interest in synthesis started at the University of Botswana where she did a Master’s degree in Organic Chemistry. The main focus of her dissertation was synthesis of 2-azetidinines and studying their biological activity.
