Georgius Adam
Professor of polymer chemistry and technology

I am currently adjunct professor  at University of New South Wales UNSW ( Faculty of Science/ Chemistry School ), and University of Western Sydney/Infrastructure research engineering.I supervised 46 M.Sc theses and 25 PhD thesis in Iraqi and Australian universities as applied research projects and /or industrial contracts. currently co- supervising two  PhD students at  UWS/Sydney. Have 46  Australian/USA/CN,KR, IN, and Eu filed inventions including (13 USA patents granted,25 published filed inventions), Hold  37 National Iraqi patients, several of them were implemented industrially. Published 7 textbooks. Published more than  250 papers in outstanding international journals and conferences. Consulted and managed several industrial projects in Australia for Parchem Company within research team, and overseas for production of several industrial products ,concrete hardener, concrete additives (super plasticisers, waterproof, ablative thermal insulators, anti-corrosion), controlled release fertilisers, hydrogels, fire resistant paints, epoxy resins and their hardeners,and other materials  :Ultra high Strength grout EP65 Plus,EP 300,Highly acid resistant hybrid Geopolymer concrete (Renderoc -G),Renderoc LA 55 plus,Combextra EP300 grout ,concrete hardening and concrete surfacing  products,production of several industrial products from lignin ;the pulping by -product such as surfactants,water based epoxy resins, and carbon fibres .

My major research fields are preparation & evaluation of new tailor-made polymers for various industrial applications and incubating research ideas: as concrete additives, polymeric composites & IPNs, Hydrogels, active ingredient supported polymers, soil stabilisers, conductive polymers, food additives and packaging, fruit preservatives and sustainable environmental projects hydrophilic and hydrophobic active ingredients, reactive dag mitigating agents..
