Research Interests: 
  • Physical chemistry aspects of photoelectrochemical solar energy (utilization of solar energy in different ways such as water splitting into hydrogen & oxygen, and purification of contaminated water). Improvement of semiconductor surfaces by modification with conductive and nonconductive polymers. Semiconductor band-edge studies and improvement. Semiconductor annealing studies. Semiconductor photoluminescence studies. Synthesis and characterization of new types of conductive polymers.
  • Nano-crystalline semiconductor surface modification. Supporting nanocrystals onto activated carbon and dye-modification of the semiconductor particles are underway. The carbon supported semiconductor nanoparticles are being used in water purification dy degrading organic contaminants with solar light.
  • Homogeneous & supported transition catalysis and applications to petrochemical processes including different organic & organometallic reactions such as hydrogenation, oxidation, hydrosilylation, O-silylation, hydroformylation & other reactions. This area includes a variety of catalytic systems such as metal-atom clusters, metalloporphyrins and metal carbonyls.
  • Environmental chemistry. Analysis of toxic elements in drinking waters. Toxic elements (Pb, Cd, Cu) in human blood.
  • Waste water recycling. Solar energy driven purification of drinking water from organic and inorganic toxic impurities. Thermal and photochemical catalytic degradation/recycling of waste polymers and other used oils. Solar energy driven water purification processes, using nano-crystalline semiconductors.
  • Transparent conducting thin film technology. This includes preparation, characterization and quality enhancement of new types of TC films.
  • Other modern applications of advanced materials (such as applications of nanoscale particles in supercapacitors, batteries, and others).
  • New composite materials.
