About the Author

DR. MOSEN ASADI, received his PhD in chemical engineering(major in sugar technology) from the Institute of ChemicalTechnology (ICT), Prague, Czech Republic, in 1983. His PhD thesiswas on molasses desugaring by chromatographic process. Afterworking in the U.S. beet-sugar industry for over twenty years,mainly in R&D, he retired in 2003. He has taught chemistry atthe Community College of Southern Nevada.
