Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

APPLIED ORGANIC CHEMISTRY. Expert received his PhD in organic chemistry, and this training was utilized throughout his career, mostly in relation to photographic chemistry. He synthesized and supervised thousands of new compounds, especially dyes and complex compounds for specific functions. This work resulted in fifty U.S. patents.

DYES; AZO DYE; METALLIZED DYE; PHTHALOCYANINE. Expert is familiar with and has synthesized most of the classes of dyes, including metallized, azo, vat, phthalocyanine, cyanine, and basic. He possesses a solid understanding of the relationship between structure and color, a critical element of this work. He also acquired insight into the visual perception of color and has knowledge of color lakes.

POLYMER CHEMISTRY; CATIONIC POLYMERIZATION; PHOTORESIST. Polymers have had a strong impact upon Expert's entire career. From synthetic polypeptides, to vinyl and condensed polymers, to the design of photoresists, he acquired a solid knowledge of polymer chemistry. He studied polymer synthesis and modification, polymerization kinetics, protein structure, and free radical and cationic photoinitiation. He also has taught polymer chemistry and organic chemistry at a local university graduate school.

PHOTOGRAPHY; PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESSING CHEMICALS. The focus of Expert's entire career has been the science and art of photography. He has extensive experience with numerous processes, including conventional black and white and color, instant black and white and color, dye transfer, silver-dye-bleach (cibachrome), and photoresists for the printed circuit board and semiconductor industries.

CHEMICAL ANALYSIS. All of the above require extensive knowledge of analytical methods. Expert is familiar with infrared (IR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), ultraviolet (UV) and visible spectroscopy, DTA, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), mass spectroscopy (MS), and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
