Research Interests:

We are interested in Organic Synthesis towards Pharmaceutical and Biologically-Active Compounds using Green Chemistry principles. In this regard, my research team is working on the following research fields:

1) Heterogeneous Catalysis Especially Synthetic Nano-Sized Materials Or Natural Nano-Biocomposites.

2) Homogeneous Catalysis Especially Organocatalysis (Transition Metal-Free Catalysis). Indeed, some efficient organocatalysts have been introduced to the Chemical Community by our research group. These include Potassium Phthalimide-N-oxyl (POPINO), Tetrabutylammonium Phthalimide-N-oxyl (TBAPINO) and Tetraethylammonium 2-(N-hydroxycarbamoyl) benzoate (TEANHCB).

3) Application of Biopolymers such as chitosan or alginic acid in pure or modified forms. Indeed, this part of our research interest is a bridge between the Heterogeneous Catalysis and Organocatalysis.

4) Environmental and Sustainable Chemistry (Multicomponent Reactions, Rearrangement Reactions, Reactions under Solvent-Free conditions, Reactions in Aqueous Media, Production of Chemicals from Agriculture Supplies, and New Energy Inputs Such as Microwaves, Ultrasound, and Ball Milling).
