Publication: CO2/N2 selectivity in amide containing MOFs

Through a fruitful collaboration with the Tarbiat Modares University of Tehran, initiated by my friend Dr. Vahid Safarifard, we investigated the separation potential of some novel amide functionalised MOFs. This work has been published in Crystal Growth & Design.

Publication: CO2 capture review in Chem. Eng. J.

The third review I contributed to during my time in Kaust is finally available online, published in Chemical Engineering Journal. This time, it is not dealing on materials design, but on CO2 capture from low concentration mixtures. I believe this article written with all the expertise and conviction of my friend and ex colleague Dr. Youssef Belmabkhout will help people understanding more the little details driving the CO2 sorption properties and making one material random, interesting, or even suitable for industrial use…

Media: SIFSIX MOFs highlighted on Nature Middle East

Nature Middle East is a website from the prestigious Nature Publishing Group which highlights the top research conducted in the Middle East.

I am really glad one of the paper I coauthored has been selected (get the article as pdf).

Check the highlight here.

Publication: Direct air capture – Nature Communications

I contributed to a work from my great colleagues Dr. Osama Shekah and Dr. Youssef Belmabkhout, related to direct air capture in MOFs with reduced pore size. Our groundbreaking findings have been published in Nature Communications. (get the article as pdf)

Publication: Amine grafting on porous organic polymers

I just published new research in Chem. Commun.
The article has also been highlighted on the front cover of the journal. (get the article as pdf)

chemcomm cover
I have been conducting and coordinating the development of a unique amine functionalization strategy, here applied to a novel porous organic polymer. It was specifically designed to deliberately encompass aldehyde functionalities, amenable to post functionalization. Continue reading Publication: Amine grafting on porous organic polymers
