My name is Gamini Gunawardena. I was a chemistry professor at Utah Valley University, Orem, Utah, USA for 26 years and now am an emeritus professor. I was born and raised in Sri Lanka.  After earning a BSc in biological science from Ruhuna University, Matara, I immigrated to the US to pursue graduate studies.  I hold an MS from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio and a PhD from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, both specializing in organic chemistry. I enjoyed writing the content of OChemPal and continue to expand and refine it.  If you have suggestions, comments, or criticisms, please contact me at  Your feedback is  very important to further  improvement of the site.  And, if you like OChemPal, please spread the word.  Your endorsement will contribute greatly toward the continuing existence of the site.
