Analytical Chemistry Sofie P. Pasilis University of Idaho Department of Chemistry

Adetayo has a BSc from the University of 

Ibadan, Nigeria, and a MSc from 

Loughborough University, UK. He has 

been at the University of Idaho since 

2011. Adetayo’s latest project involves 

using ESI-MS to study the complexation 

and speciation of uranyl(VI) in the 

presence of amidoxime ligands and 

siderophores such as desferrioxamine B.  

Adetayo Mustapha

Ruma has a BSc and a MSc from 

Kumaun University, Uttarakhand, India. 

She joined our group in summer 2013. 

Ruma is studying the chemistry of 

uranyl(VI) and La(III) species in room 

temperature ionic liquids using IR, 

Raman, and NMR spectroscopic
