Nitin Patil
Advanced Research Associate


Dr. Patil received his Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry (major in polymer chemistry) from the Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, Oklahoma, in December in 2013. He completed the Bachelor of Polymer Engineering and Technology at University Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, and Maharashtra, India in 2006. Prior to joining PhD program, he worked as a Polymer Technologist at Asian Paints Ltd, Mumbai. At Asian Paints, his research project was focused on, “achieving high solids alkyd resins” for coatings. His doctoral thesis was focused on, “self-assembled polymer nanocomposites”. After his doctoral program, he then moved to University of Massachusetts, Amherst for postdoctoral studies in Polymer Science and Engineering Department. His postdoctoral research was focused on, “understanding the molecular dynamics of phase mixed polymers such as polyurethane urea using solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance”. Currently he is working as a senior chemist at Reichhold LLC2 in the coatings division. His current focus is “formulating alkyd latex polymers for both architectural and industrial applications”.
