Stemming from his stints in major petrochemical companies in Malaysia, Luqman finds many companies are still outsourcing works they can do themselves.

Further to that, with environmental regulations becoming more stringent, both local and international companies must seek for cheaper, faster and easier solutions to be implemented.

As part of his aspirations, Luqman believes R&D should be the backbone of any organisation in order to remain competitive. The research findings can then be commercialised and tailored to benefit the wider community. 

Here at Imperial, he is affiliated with several prominent R&D groups to help realise his utilitarian goals such as:




research focus

  1. Greener synthesis of a novel adsorbent, metal organic framework (MOF) and to vary its applicability;
  2. Bespoke materials characterisation to address environmental challenges; and
  3. Translation of research outcomes into sustainable products.
