A Nigerian scientist and President/Director of Analysis at Lumos Laboratories Nigeria Restricted, Ejikeme Patrick Nwosu, has been awarded two Invention patent rights of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for his two newest improvements. This has introduced the variety of patents on his title to 5.
The primary patent is on improvement of Ezeugo Flask whereas the opposite is on creation of Fireplace Retardant Paint utilizing byproduct from Lumos Laboratories’ urine-to-energy processing.
Nwosu, who has a Bachelor of Science diploma in Pure and Industrial Chemistry from Nnamdi Azikiwe College Awka, Anambra State and a Grasp of Science diploma in Natural Chemistry from the College of Ibadan, Oyo State, advised The Guardian: “From the most effective of my data, we’re the primary to arrange a pilot plant that converts urine into vitality through a chemical response. As a result of we’re the primary, numbers of things wanted to get issues executed weren’t on the cabinets, we needed to invent them. And that marked the creation and invention of Ticlob-Lumos Technique, Patrium Flask Reactor and now Ezeugo Flask and Fireplace Retardant Paint.”
The natural chemist stated the Fireplace Retardant Paint is a by-product with fireplace retardant properties and had been transformed into fireplace retardant paint, a paint that when coated on furnishings and so on. won’t be burnt by fireplace.
On Ezeugo Flask, Ejikeme stated: “Our by-product is a combination of solvent, miscible solute and colloid; from our greatest of data there isn’t a recognized separation approach and gear to purify the byproduct successfully. That marked the creation of Ezeugo Flask to do the job and this course of can as effectively go for a brand new separation approach coined Ezeugomisation.
“My late Dad, Ezeugo, will particularly be pleased with these improvements. Thanks in your fantastic helps, earlier than finish of the yr, I hope to get extra improvements patented. Collectively, we are able to usher in a greater world!”
On what the long run holds, the natural chemist added: “It’s apparent that our crude oil reserves might be exhausted in few a long time to come back. When this occurs we might be pressured to make use of different sources of gas, however it could be extra prudent to begin appearing previous to such state. Quickly my discovery may substitute fossil fuels within the close to future.”
Amongst his scientific works are isolation of ammonia from human urine and Particular idea of inorganic chemical reactions; tasks he accomplished as an undergraduate and whose abstracts the American Chemical Society E book of Abstracts printed in 2005. In 2011, Nwosu printed a paper titled “Particular idea of toxicity: Poisonous properties of electron found”.
In response to Nwosu’s findings, single electrons and lone pairs are the key contributors to toxicity in parts and compounds. Atoxopy was additionally launched within the stated paper to deal with some particular circumstances of toxicity. His coined chemistry time period, atoxopy, has been translated in Italian, Spanish, Filipino, Chinese language and different languages, whereas the pronunciation can also be obtainable on YouTube.
In response to the corporate’s web site, their analysis pursuits are in Renewable Power, improvement of Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV)/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) therapy, conversion of waste lubricating oil into prime quality ones, and improvement of wind/photo voltaic/biogas powered automobiles.
