This Immigrant Who Trump Clearly Hates, Built an Innovative Scientific Tool Company in the US.

Every day I get pop up ads in various places for scientific instruments, whether at work or at home. I usually can learn something from them, but it is not possible to open them all.

Today's ad came from a company developing innovative devices that would have been much appreciated in an earlier part of my career; regrettably I have no need for rotary evaporators, although I have a certain nostalgia for the days when they were part of my daily life.

An immigrant to this country, from Ghana, has founded a company built around an improved rotary evaporator device.

George Adjabeng

About Our Founder

Born in Somanya, Ghana, George Adjabeng attended the University of Cape Coast in nearby Ghana for his undergraduate studies. Graduating in 2000, he received the Mendell Award for overall top chemistry student. In the fall of 2000, he moved to Brock University (St. Catharines, Canada) where he began his masters’ research with Professor Alfredo Capretta studying new and robust methodologies for palladium-catalyzed, cross-coupling reactions. There, he co-authored five internationally acclaimed articles. He left Brock in the fall of 2003 to pursue a medicinal chemistry career with Roche (Palo Alto, California). At Roche, his research was focused on infectious diseases where he co-authored two papers. In 2004, George left Roche to join GSK (Research Triangle Park, North Carolina) to pursue cancer drug research. He was awarded the Exceptional Science Award twice for making significant contributions to the discovery of new drugs. He was a discoverer and first inventor of the advanced melanoma drug, Tafinlar. His contributions on many more projects lead to the discovery of drugs, publications and many patents. In his research into infectious diseases, he independently invented a scaffold upon which a Hepatitis C Virus pan-genotype inhibitor drug was discovered. He left GSK in 2011 as a Senior Scientist and briefly held research positions at the National Institute of Health (NIH, Rockville, MD) and UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy (Chapel Hill, NC) before venturing into entrepreneurship...

...During his MBA studies his entrepreneurial spirit was awakened and after graduating in 2010, he filed his first sole inventor patent titled Rotary Evaporator. Prior to this invention, George used rotary evaporators extensively in research for over a decade. George developed his first prototype in 2013, followed by the second prototype in 2014 and the customer-ready product the EcoChyll® in 2015. Today, he leads Ecodyst through its formative years in instrument design, engineering, manufacturing, finance, marketing, sales and customer relations.




Now you would need to have a shithole brain and an extremely primitive understanding of the world, a lousy education, and the moral level of a decomposed turnip to not appreciate Mr. Adjabeng.

Mr. Adjabeng has much of which to be proud, of course, of what he brought to his adopted country - may we be worthy of him - and it goes significantly beyond being such an idiot as to be proud of reciting "Person, Man, Woman, Camera, TV..."

The company: Ecodyst: Leading High Speed Solvent Recovery.

It is going to take a long time, a long time, before our country can erase the stain of Trumpist racism from our history.

2. Were I still doing organic synthesis, I would definitely check it out.

The environmental advantages of this device are very clear; and it probably will save the lives of some vacuum pumps, or at least reduce oil usage, when one is working late, and is too tired to pay attention to dry ice or liquid nitrogen in the trap.

4. Nothing, other than to characterize his region as consisting of "shit hole countries."

He was obviously jealous of the designation, since he has succeeded in making the United States a shit hole pariah state.

My remark about obvious hatred has to do with the CEO's country of origin and the color of his skin.
