Career Summary

Biography

From 1995 until present I have been the sole chemist forming part of a multi-disciplinary academic team (known as the Discipline of Applied Sciences) based at The University of Newcastle's Central Coast Campus (UONCC). The campus has teaching and research specialisations in Food Science & Human Nutrition, Sport and Exercise Science & Environmental Science and Management. I have developed successful research collaborations with a number of research groups within and external to the University of Newcastle across a number of fields of science including post harvest science (with NSW DPI), organic synthesis, natural products chemistry and polymer chemistry (please see Research Expertise & Collaborations for details. To date, this work has resulted in the authoring of 100 peer reviewed journal articles and the completion of 15 research higher degree students (PhD), both domestic and international. 

In addition to maintaining an active research profile, I have held a number of significant administrative positions with in The Faculty of Science including Head of the Discipline of Applied Sciences (2006 - 2014) and Deputy Head of the School of Environmental & Life Sciences (2011 - 2014).  I am the current Deputy Head of the Faculty of Science (2014 - present), see Administrative Expertise.  

Research Expertise & Collaborations

I originally trained as a research chemist with expertise in organic synthesis, with a particular interest in how interactions between organic molecules act as signalling agents in both natural and synthetic systems. I have established successful collaborative research with Emeritus Professor Ron Wills (Food Science & Human Nutrition - UON) and Dr John Golding (DPI) to extend the postharvest life of fresh farm produce using biological signalling gases nitric oxide (NO) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) which delay the senescence process, resulting in reduced reliance on low temperature storage.

The role of NO in mammalian physiology is relatively well understood but its action in plants remains largely undefined. I have synthesised zwitterionic NO donor compounds capable of delivering a precise quantities of NO gas to produce over time, in a controlled manner. Solid phase NO delivery has enhanced the scope and flexibility of NO fumigation technology by eliminating the need for cumbersome, expensive and dangerous infrastructure (e.g. high pressure cylinders). The research has yielded numerous refereed journal articles and competitive grant funding. Work in this field has recently been extended to investigate the potential use of NO donor technology to control settlement behaviour in marine organisms. 

New research involving the use of H2S has yielded similarly interesting results in plants, with treatment resulting in delayed loss of chlorophyll in leafy green produce.  Currently investigations are seeking to advance our undertaking of the interrelationship between H2S and the plant hormone ethylene, a key driver of postharvest senescence.  

I have also been involved in molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) research with Professor Adam McCluskey and Dr Clovia Holdsworth (Callaghan campus) that has been supported by a number of external bodies including the Grape & Wine Research & Development Corporation (GWRDC) and separate ARC Linkage Grants with the Australian Federal Police and Bureau of Sugar Research Stations to develop smart polymers capable of selectively sequestering contaminants and high value compounds from solution. 

I am also engaged in collaborative research with Associate Professor Chris Scarlet (Ourimbah) to screen indigenous and exotic plant extracts derived from Australian native fauna and flora for biological activity against pancreatic and other cancer cells lines.  

Teaching Expertise
As a foundation academic in the School of Applied Sciences, I have been solely responsible for development, delivery assessment and administration of two first year chemistry courses (CHEM1110 & CHEM1120) taught at UONCC. In two decades of service, I have overseen an expansion in enrolments from an initial student intake of 7 students (1995) to enrolment numbers exceeding 140 students in 2007.  The courses are designed to provide an introduction to general & bioorganic chemistry for Life Science and Food Science undergraduates. I have also made teaching contributions to 2000 & 3000 level courses in the fields of environmental chemistry (CHEM2260, CHEM3260) and organic chemistry (CHEM2330, 3330) at the Ourimbah and Callaghan campuses  and delivered specialist lectures into 4000 level Honours courses, covering selected areas of heterocyclic synthesis.

I an an advocate for modern teaching methods which deliver quality learning outcomes for students including the use of blended learning and multimedia based teaching.

© 2018 The Authors This data article indicates the in vitro cytotoxicity of kaempferol and gallic acid across different cancer cell lines including A2780 (ovarian), H460 (lung), A431 (skin), MIA PaCa-2 (pancreas), Du145 (prostate), HT29 (colon), MCF-7 (breast), BE2-C (neuroblastoma), SJ-G2, U87 and SMA (glioblastoma). The dataset showed that the inhibitory activity of kaempferol was comparatively stronger than gallic acid. Thereby, kaempferol is offered as a potent anticancer agent for further investigation and beneficial as a dietary supplement. The data within this article relates to the research article entitled ¿Screening phytochemical content, antioxidant, antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities of Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don stem extract and its fractions¿ (Pham et al., 2018).

© 2016, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Xao tam phan (Paramignya trimera (Oliv.) Guillaum) has been used as an herbal medicine for the treatment of cancer or cancer-like diseases in recent years, particularly in Vietnam. Drying is an important step for preparation of dried materials for storage and further investigation; however, the effects of drying must be taken into account when processing samples, because this can have profound effects on the stability of phytochemical compounds and the biological activity of the dried P. trimera root. As such, this study assessed the effects of four different drying methods (conventional, hot air, vacuum, and microwave) on phytochemical retention and antioxidant capacity of P. trimera root, to identify an optimal drying method for P. trimera root. The results showed that the drying methods significantly affected phytochemical levels and antioxidant capacity of P. trimera root and that among the four drying methods tested, microwave drying (400¿W) had the highest levels of phytochemical compounds, with total phenolic, total flavonoid, proanthocyanidin, and saponin contents of 11.27¿mg GAE, 19.88¿mg RE, 3.98¿mg CE, and 267.15¿mg EE/gram of dried sample, respectively. Dried sample prepared using this method had antioxidant capacity comparable to that of other drying methods. In addition, this method had the shortest drying time (0.28¿h) and consumed the least energy (0.28¿kWh). Therefore, microwave drying should be considered for drying P. trimera root for further investigation and utilization.

© 2016, The Korean Society of Food Science and Technology and Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht. The effects of different solvents on the recovery of (i) extractable solids (ES), (ii) total phenolic compounds (TPC), (iii) total flavonoid content (TFC), (iv) vitamin C, and (v) antioxidant activity from lemon pomace waste were investigated. The results revealed that solvents significantly affected the recovery of ES, TPC, TFC, and antioxidant properties. Absolute methanol and 50% acetone resulted in the highest extraction yields of TPC, whereas absolute methanol resulted in the highest extraction of TFC, and water had the highest recovery of vitamin C. 50% ethanol, and 50% acetone had higher extraction yields for TPC, and TFC, as well as higher antioxidant activity compared with their absolute solvents and water. TPC and TFC were shown to be the major components contributing to the antioxidant activity of lemon pomace.

© 2014 Institute of Food Science and Technology. Summary: The papaya (Carica papaya) leaf (PL) contains high levels of saponins and polyphenolic compounds, and historically, it has been used as a folk medicine for numerous ailments, including cancer. PL is traditionally prepared by hot water extraction; however, optimised extraction conditions have not been assessed. This study optimised conditions for the extraction of saponins from PL and assessed their antioxidant capacity and antipancreatic cancer activity. Optimisation was achieved using response surface methodology. Saponins and total phenolic compounds were assessed for their antioxidant, free radical scavenging, ion-reducing capacity, and antipancreatic cancer activity. Optimal aqueous extraction conditions were 85 °C, 25 min. and a water-to-leaf ratio of 20:1 mL g-1. Ethanol extracts demonstrated higher antioxidant, free radical scavenging and ion-reducing capacity, as well as antipancreatic cancer activity. This study revealed that the PL contains numerous bioactive compounds, with significant anticancer activity warranting further studies on the isolation and characterisation of individual bioactive compounds from the PL.

© 2015 Elsevier B.V. Xao tam phan (. Paramignya trimera (Oliv.) Guillaum) is a Vietnamese traditionally medicinal plant used in the treatment of numerous cancers. The preparation of Xao tam phan extracts including solvent type and extraction method have significant effects on extraction efficiency, phytochemical profile and biological activity. This study aimed to investigate the effects of five various solvents (water, acetonitrile, methanol, ethyl acetate and hexane) and three different extraction methods (conventional, ultrasound-assisted and microwave-assisted) on phytochemical yield and antioxidant capacity of P. trimera root from Vietnam. The results indicate that methanol extracted the maximal yield of phytochemicals from P. trimera and exhibited the greatest antioxidant capacity, with eleven compounds were identified and quantified. Microwave-assisted extraction produced the maximal phytochemical yields (except for total flavonoids) and antioxidant capacity, when compared to conventional and ultrasound-assisted extractions. These data reveal that the use of methanol and microwave-assisted extraction are recommended for extraction of biologically active phytochemicals from P. trimera root for application in the nutraceutical and/or pharmaceutical industries.

© 2015 The Royal Society of Chemistry. The acid dissociation constants (pK<inf>a</inf>s) of a number of novel polymerisable vinyl biaryl compounds, 4-(4'-ethenylphenyl)-pyridine (M1), 4'-ethenyl-(1,1'-biphenyl)-4-ol (M2), 4'-ethenyl-N,N-dimethyl-(1,1'-biphenyl)-3-amine (M3), 4'-ethenyl-(1,1'-biphenyl)-4-methanol (M4), 4'-ethenyl-N,N-dimethyl-(1,1'-biphenyl)-4-amine (M5), 4'-ethenyl-(1,1'-biphenyl)-4-carboxylic acid (M6), 4'-ethenyl-4-hydroxy-5-methyl-(1,1'-biphenyl)-3-carboxaldehyde (M7) were determined in a mixed solvent (THF-water) potentiometric titration at 25 °C and subsequent extrapolation to pure water via the Yasuda-Shedlovsky method. The acidity and basicity of the compounds in THF-water mixtures was observed to decrease with increasing THF fraction and is attributed to the corresponding decrease in the dielectric constant of the solution. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported study of pK<inf>a</inf> values undertaken for this class of compounds. The biaryls, M1-M7, were prepared by microwave-assisted Suzuki cross coupling of 4-vinylphenyl boronic acid with the appropriate aryl bromide and were custom designed for use as functional monomers in the synthesis of molecularly imprinted polymers.

© 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Vitex agnus-castus (VitexAC) leaves have been used for medicinal purposes for many years. Drying is important to prepare starting materials for further processing, as it is associated with production cost and quality of the materials. Herein, the effects of five different drying conditions on the physical, chemical and antioxidant properties of VitexAC were evaluated. The results showed that 30% of dried leaves with moisture content of less than 7% could be produced from fresh leaves. VitexAC leaves dried by freeze and vacuum drying at 65C had higher levels of bioactive compounds as well as higher antioxidant capacity in comparison with other drying conditions, revealing that these drying conditions are more suitable for drying VitexAC leaves. However, freeze drying is costly and time-consuming; thus, vacuum drying at 65C is suggested for drying the VitexAC leaves as the starting materials for further processing steps. Practical Applications: As drying is an important process to prepare starting materials for further processing steps, it is important to compare different drying methods to identify the most suitable method with low cost and less effect on material quality. The results showed that inappropriate drying conditions resulted in big loss of bioactive compounds and antioxidant capacity. Vacuum drying at 65C was found to be the most suitable method, which can be easily applied for drying Vitex agnus-castus leaves in the industrial scale.

Copyright © 2015 Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta AG, Zürich. The genus Eucalyptus (Myrtaceae) is mainly native to Australia; however, some species are now distributed globally. Eucalyptus has been used in indigenous Australian medicines for the treatment of a range of aliments including colds, flu, fever, muscular aches, sores, internal pains, and inflammation. Eucalyptus oils containing volatile compounds have been widely used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries for a multitude of purposes. In addition, Eucalyptus extracts containing nonvolatile compounds are also an important source of key bioactive compounds, and several studies have linked Eucalyptus extracts with anticancer properties. With the increasing research interest in Eucalyptus and its health properties, this review briefly outlines the botanical features of Eucalyptus, discusses its traditional use as medicine, and comprehensively reviews its phytochemical and anticancer properties and, finally, proposes trends for future studies.

Lilly pilly (LP) fruit (Syzygium paniculatum Gaertn.) is widely grown in eastern Australia and has been used as food by indigenous Australians. However, there is limited information on its bioactivity. This study investigated the physicochemical and antioxidant properties of the crude fruit extract, identified its bioactive compounds and also assessed its potential anti-proliferative effect on pancreatic cancer cells. Our data showed that the LP extract was water-soluble and possessed a total phenolic content of 96 mg of gallic acid equivalents (GAE)/g, flavonoid levels of 52 mg catechin equivalents (CAE)/g, proanthocyanidin levels of 29 mg CAE/g. Several phenolic compounds such as gallic acid, chlorogenic acid, catechin and epicatechin were identified in the LP extract with levels of 0.39, 2.35, 0.47 and 2.9 mg/g, respectively. Results from six different antioxidant assays revealed that the LP extract pocessed potent antioxidant and free radical scavenging capacity. Although antioxidant capacity of the extract was lower than that of vitamin E, vitamin C and BHT, it could be significantly improved if the extract was to be further purified. We also showed that the LP extract (200 µg/mL) significantly reduced the viability of MiaPaCa-2 and ASPC-1 pancreatic cancer cells to levels comparable to that of the chemotherapeutic agent gemcitabine. For this reason lilly pilly should be further investigated for its health promoting and potential anti-cancer benefits, particularly for pancreatic cancer. © 2014 Elsevier GmbH.

The selectivity and rebinding capacity of molecularly imprinted polymers selective for propranolol (1) using the room temperature ionic liquids [BMIM][BF4], [BMIM][PF6], [HMIM][PF6] and [OMIM][PF6] and CHCl3 were examined. The observed IF (imprinting factor) values for MIPBF4, MIPPF6 and MIP CHCl3 were 1.0, 1.98 and 4.64, respectively. The longer chain HMIM and OMIM systems returned lower IF values of 1.1 and 2.3, respectively. MIP PF6 also showed a ~25% binding capacity reduction vs. MIP CHCl3 (5 µmol g-1vs. 7 µmol g-1 respectively). MIPCHCl3 and MIPPF6 differed in terms of BET surface area (306 m2 g-1vs. 185 m2 g -1), pore size (1.10 and 2.19 nm vs. 0.97 and 7.06 nm), the relative number of pores (Type A: 10.4 vs. 7.5%; Type B: 8.5 vs. 3.0%), and surface zeta potential (-37.9 mV vs. -20.3 mV). The MIP specificity for 1 was examined by selective rebinding studies with caffeine (2) and ephedrine (3). MIP PF6 rebound higher quantities of 2 than MIPCHCl3, but this was largely due to non-specific binding. Both MIPCHCl3 and MIP PF6 showed a higher affinity for 3 than for 2. Reduction in the Room Temperature Ionic Liquid (RTIL) porogen volume had little impact on the polymer morphology, but did result in a modest decrease in IF from 2.6 to 2.3 and in the binding capacity (30% to 19%). MIPCHCl3 retained the highest template specificity on rebinding from CHCl3 (IF = 4.6) dropping to IF = 0.6 in MeOH/[BMIM][PF6]. The MIPCHCl3 binding capacity remained constant using CHCl3, CH2Cl2 and MeOH (46-52%), dropped to 6% on addition of [BMIM][PF6] and increased to 83% in H2O (but at the expense of specificity with IFH2O = 1.4). MIPPF6 rebinding from MeOH saw an increase in specific rebinding to IF = 4.9 and also an increase in binding capacity to 48% when rebinding 1 from MeOH and to 42% and 45% with H2O and CH2Cl2, respectively, although in the latter case the increased capacity was at the cost of specificity with IFCH2Cl2 = 1.2. Overall the MIPPF6 capacity and specificity were enhanced on addition of MeOH. This journal is © the Partner Organisations 2014.

Some 2-(7-indolyl)pyrroles have been synthesised from the 4,6-dimethoxyindoles 4, 19 and 20 using die modified Vilsmeier reaction. The indolylpyrrole 8 was formed by dehydrogenation of the 2-(7-indolyl)pyrroline 7, which was obtained from indole 4, methyl pyrrolidin-2-one-5-carboxylate and phosphoryl chloride. However, a more generally effective sequence uses a combination of 3-bromopyrrolidin-2-one 11 and phosphoryl chloride to give the 3-chloro-2-(7-indolyl)pyrrolines 12, 29 and 30, which undergo subsequent dehydrohalogenation to give the indolylpyrroles 13, 33 and 34.

4,6-Dimethoxy-2,3-diphenylindole (1) undergoes acylation, bromination, oxidative coupling and acid-catalysed addition to aldehydes at C-7 to produce a range of 7-substituted indoles (3-11), the indolo-isatin (6), the 7,7'-bi-indolyls (14), (16), (18), and the 7,7'-di-indolylmethanes (20-31). Addition to cyclopentanone gave compound (32), while Michael addition to a,ß-unsaturated ketones gave compound (33) and the non-benzenoid double adduct (34). Related reactions led to the formation of the ring-fused indoles (39) and (41). Some reactions of the related indole diester (2) are also reported. © 1994.

One isomer of the 1, 5-diphosphocane has been obtained by reduction of the dioxide with trichlorosilane. Stereochemistry is assigned on the basis of (formula omitted) infrared and mass spectral studies and the X-ray structure of the trans-l, 4-diphosphorinane.

Indoles can be converted into their related imine derivatives by imidoyl chloride reagents (derived from phosphoryl chloride and secondary amides), in a reaction superior to the combination of indole carbonyl compounds and primary amines; however, use of N,N'-diacetyl-o-phenylenediamine leads to the effective formation of enamines.

© 2018 International Society for Horticultural Science. All rights reserved. Phyllanthus amarus (P. amarus) has been used for herbal medicines, particularly for liver support in many countries. The preparation of dried sample is crucial for further extraction and isolation of phytochemicals. In this study, the effects of six different drying methods (hot-air, low temperature-air, infrared, microwave, sun and vacuum drying) on the phytochemical yield and antioxidant capacity were determined to identify the optimal drying method for P. amarus. The results showed that different drying methods, as well as different drying conditions within each method, significantly affected phytochemical yield and antioxidant capacity of P. amarus extracts. Infrared drying at 30°C was the best method for both retention of bioactive compound yield and antioxidant capacity of P. amarus extract, with twelve compounds were identified. Therefore, infrared drying at 30°C is suggested for drying P. amarus for subsequent assessment of bioactivity.
