Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Malaysia
Mohd Hasmizam Razali has a PhD degree in Materials Engineering (Nanomaterials) from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), MSc. in chemistry (Catalyst) and B.Sc (Hons) in Chemical Industry from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Currently he is a Senior Lecturer at School of Fundamental Sciences, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), Malaysia. He has published more than 50 technical papers in journals and conference proceedings locally and internationally related to the nanomaterials and functional materials research. Owing to their significant impacts to the science, economy and society, his innovative research and inventions have attracted global and national interests, enabling him to secure financial support from both private and government agencies. He has been awarded Who’s Who in the World for 3 years in a row 2013, 2014 and 2015 by The Marquis Who’s Who Publications Board. In 2014, the Cambridge Biographical Centre listed him as one of 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century, due its ability to produce nanomaterials with tremendous improvement compared to conventional commercial materials. On top of that, he is also the recipient of the MAWHIBA Award and GENEVA Gold Medal Award in 1999.
My research focuses on nanomaterials and functional materials. I am particularly work on synthesis and design nanostructured TiO2 materials for environmental pollution and renewable energy generation. On top of that, I also studied the performance of nanostructured TiO2 for biomedical and tissue engineering. For this research various nanostructured TiO2 (nanoparticles, nanocrystallites, nanorods, nanowires, nanotubes) was incorporated into biopolymers to produce nanobiocomposite hydrogels, films, or scaffolds for biomedical applications.
