Muhammad Bilal Tahir Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information technology, RYK, Pakistan. Muhammad Tahir is in Department of Physics, Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information Technology, RYK Pakistan. His research focuses on the areas of micro- and nanomanufacturing. Muhammad Sagir Associate Professor, in the Department of Chemical Engineering, at the Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information technology, RYK, Pakistan. Dr. Muhammad Sagir is in Department of Chemical Engineering, Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information Technology, RYK Pakistan . His research interests are in in the field of Chemical Sciences. Abdullah M. Asiri Chemistry Department, Center of Excellence for Advanced Materials Research, King Abdulaziz University,
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Prof. Abdullah M. Asiri is the Head of the Chemistry Department at King Abdulaziz University since October 2009 and he is the founder and the Director of the Center of Excellence for Advanced Materials Research (CEAMR) since 2010 till date. He is the Professor of Organic Photochemistry. His research interest covers color chemistry, synthesis of novel photochromic and thermochromic systems, synthesis of novel coloring matters and dyeing of textiles, materials chemistry, nanochemistry and nanotechnology, polymers and plastics. A major achievement of Prof. Asiri is the discovery of tribochromic compounds, a class of compounds which change from slightly or colorless to deep colored when subjected to small pressure or when grind. This discovery was introduced to the scientific community as a new terminology published by IUPAC in 2000. This discovery was awarded a patent from European Patent office and from UK patent. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of various journals of international repute. He is the Vice- President of Saudi Chemical Society (Western Province Branch). He holds four USA patents, more than 800 Publications in international journals, seven book chapters, and ten books
