My overall original contribution to knowledge from this work is to characterize the physicochemical,

stability, and rheological properties of African catfish mucilage (ACM), a waste from African catfish to

provide an effective suitable, eco-friendly alternative emulsifier that could serve as feedstock in food-grade,

cosmetics, drug delivery, and personal care industry.

The work comprised of a mini-thesis on ‘Copper (II) complexes of cyclo-hexanone semi-carbazone

which showcased the possibility of coupling cupper to the organic compound because copper was

more soluble in the human body. The original compound was an Iron II complex of cyclohexanone

semi-carbazone which was used in treating measles. The complex was formed however

the project delineation did not take in clinical trials.
