·                     Fifteen years in Teaching, Research and Industrial Consulting.

·                     Taught General, Physical, Analytical and Industrial Inorganic

Chemistry courses.

·                     Developed new “Electrochemical Corrosion” course.

·                     Supervised and co-supervised several MS thesis students.

·                     Developed the freshmen laboratories through implementation of the network-

based Measurenet system which enhance student access to advanced instruments, reduce chemical usage by at least a factor of ten, reduce lab crowdedness due to pc's and allow for instructor instantaneous monitoring of every single experiment.

·                     Adoption of a modern laboratory textbook, reviewing and evaluating the freshmen

books available in the markets, development of electronic reference materials for freshmen chemistry.

·                     Reviewed the industrial chemistry programs worldwide and carried visits to many

Universities to develop the department of chemistry industrial chemistry program.

·                     Served in many University committees such as Safety, Graduate

studies, Students, Curriculum, Budget committees, Strategic

planning, Student Counseling,  etc.

·                     Invited external examiner for MS thesis.

·                     Refereed papers and projects.




·      Carried research on carotenoids funded by the Department of Energy

·      DOE), USA. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance, electron Nuclear Double Resonance, Chemically Induced Dipole Electron Polarization, Excimer LASER and Electrochemical methods were interfaced to understand the mechanism of free radical generation.

·      The fullerene research at Denver University was funded by the Petroleum Research Fund administered by The American Chemical Society. The Electrochemical part was performed at The Frank J. Seiler Laboratory at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado. Electron Spin Echo Envelop Modulation and Saturation Recovery EPR were used to determine the electronic structure of the dianions generated electrochemically.

·      Fast pulsed voltammetry using microelectrodes with Flow Injection  Analysis.

·      Electrochemical corrosion techniques to study the corrosion properties of high energy coatings.

·      Novel nanofilms composed of polyelectrolytes coatings for anticorrosion and antibacterial applications.




·      Accomplished the first detailed study on the Electrochemistry and Photochemistry of carotenoids, which is a cited more than 50 times until now. Free radicals from different carotenoids were generated in situ inside the microwave cavity. Excimer LASER was used to monitor the spin recombination  after a LASER pulse.

·      Proved for the first time that the fullerenes dianions are diamagnetic which is cited in more than 30 in major fullerenes journals and books.

·      Build the first fast electrochemical detector for insitu measurement of trace pollutants in flowing solution. Continuous square wave voltammograms were accumulated at high frequency. Data was collected 5µs after the pulse using a 10 µm electrode. The system was designed to monitor pollutants that cannot be detected by optical spectroscopy.

·      Improved the quality of duplex treatment of the surface of the Ti-6Al-4V alloy for mechanical and corrosion applications.

·      Reported first the aluminum selective dissolution from the Ti-6Al-4V alloy in acidic media.

·      Discovered a molecular marker in labeling the quality of tobacco and tea leaves using EPR spectroscopy. The signal from paramagnetic manganese which exists as a cluster in the protein reaction center of photosynthetic plants was found to reflect the environmental degradation stresses  on the plant.

·      Developed the differential Potentiometric techniques to analyze trace materials in solution. The technique was used successfully to analyze trace amounts of vitamin C in pharmaceutical products, chlorine in bottled water. The technique is extremely economical and utilize only two electrodes and a potentiometer.

·      Filed a US patent which introduce an innovative method to immobilize antibacterial and anticorrosion nanonfilms on surfaces (docket 18692.05 has been filed with US PTO on April 14, 2006).

·      Filed a US patent which propose a primer coating prior to polyelectrolytes multilayers nanofilms deposition, 2007.
