Dr Tamim Darwish

Research summary

Dr Tamim Darwish is a senior research scientist and leader of the chemical deuteration team at the National Deuteration Facility (NDF) at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO). This facility is one of the very few open access facilities offering deuterium labelling of molecules for Australian and international researchers, and is the only such facility in the world to offer both chemical and biodeuteration. He is interested in developing new hydrothermal and microwave synthetic methods for the synthesis of deuterated organic molecules for neutron, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy and other techniques. Tamim has also interests in photochromic materials and the development of reversible multi-stimuli response photochromic systems.
