Name : Dr. Prinson P Samuel

Department : Chemistry

Designation : Ad-hoc/Guest


Dr. Prinson P. Samuel completed his M.Sc. in Chemistry from University of Kerala in 2003 and M. Tech. in Industrial Catalysis from Cochin University of Science and Technology in 2006. Shortly, he joined National Chemical Laboratory, Pune in the research group of Dr. A. P. Singh (Senior scientist) and worked towards developing an industrial catalytic technology for bisphenol-A synthesis in a collaborative project with GE India Ltd. In 2007, he was awarded the International Research and Training Group (IRTG) fellowship funded by German Research Foundation to pursue his doctoral studies in the group of Prof. Dr. Carola Schulzke in the University of Goettingen and worked in the field of biomimetic chemistry of Mo and W. In 2011, he was awarded the Doctorate degree from University of Goettingen. Later on, he joined the research group of the renowned chemist Prof. Dr. Herbert W. Roesky in the same university, for his postdoctoral research and actively involved in exploring the chemistry of low coordinate transition metals showing single molecule magnetic properties and compounds with low valent group 14 elements. After completing six years of post doctoral studies, he joined the Department of Chemistry, TKMCE as a guest faculty. Dr. Samuel's contribution to various fields of chemistry are reflected in his h-index of 20 with most of his recent publications in high impact journals. He is an author of 48 research articles and 2 reviews published in international journals in addition to 2 book chapters. He is an author of the book "Molybdenum and Tungsten Cofactor Model Chemistry" published by Nova Sci. Publ. New York.
