Saif Khan is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore, Singapore, and a Scientific Editor forReaction Chemistry & Engineering, helping to ensure that articles meet the stringent criteria required for publication in the journal. He works on the design and analysis of chemical reactors which perhaps go beyond the familiar – think reactions in bubbles, droplets and foams. His platform of choice is microfluidic systems, which allow the control of transport properties and non-equilibrium conditions for efficient, economical and sustainable chemical synthesis. His recent Green Chemistry paper is in this area:
Rapid nanoparticle-catalyzed hydrogenations in triphasic millireactors with facile catalyst recovery, Swee Kun Yap, Yuan Yuan, Lu Zheng, Wai Kuan Wong, Jiaguang Zhang, Ning Yan and Saif A. Khan, Green Chem., 2014, 16, 4654.
Dr Khan was a R. T. Haslam Presidential Fellow at MIT prior to moving to Singapore.\
