Abubakar Alkali is currently a PhD student at Robert Gordon University Aberdeen U.K and is working on Hydrogen separation and purification processes using inorganic composite membranes with particular emphasis on palladium and its alloys. He is also working on catalytic hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions using composite palladium membranes in a membrane reactor. His work involves the application of several methods of fabrication of these membranes but with emphasis on Electroless plating technique. Mr Alkali’s other research interests include photocatalytic methods for the production of hydrogen from renewable sources. He has attended the International hydrogen research showcase (U.K) in April 2011 where he made a presentation.
