Prof. Omolara A. Bamgboye


Professor Omolara Bamgboye is an astute academic, her research interests lie at the interface of organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry. They focus largely on the chemistry of new or unusual bonding arrangements. The chemistry of the main group elements is highly varied and provides an excellent domain in which new functional group chemistry can be built. A brief look at some of the research “firsts” from her works demonstrates how the varied chemistry of the main group elements is utilized and the broad scope of new information she has contributed to science. Many of these contributions are illustrated with the novel structures produced by her research in her early days. She is also an accomplished administrator with experience spanning close to four (4) decades in Cooperate governance in the University system.
