Three Malaysian scientists made it to the list and they are Professor Dr. Saidur Rahman Abdul Hakim from Universiti Malaya (UM), Professor Dr. Ishak Hashim from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Profesor Dr. Abdul Latif Ahmad from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).

However, another scientist also from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Professor Dr. Bassim H. Hameed was also listed among the group but his name was mistakenly included in the list under a Saudi Arabian university.

Currently leading the Reaction Engineering & Adsorption (READ) research group, his research interest is reaction engineering and adsorption technology particularly issues related to energy & environment.
