Dr. Mosaad Negem

My main research interests focus on the field of nanotechnology including the synthesis of novel nanomaterials from aqueous and ionic liquid media and their applications on hydrogen energy, magnetic properties, photocatalytic splitting of water, photovoltaics, fuel cell, biological activity, light emitting diode, hardness and corrosion protection. My research involves the synthesis of the metals, alloys, nanosemiconductors (metals oxides, metals sulphide and organic-metals iodide) and nanocomposites using electroplating, microwave, nanoemulsions, solid state reaction, sol-gel, solvothermal, biomimetic, sonochemical synthesis and mixing of these methods. My current and future research will be performed on the production of the novel semiconductors (photocatalysts) for renewable energy as a promising field to supply the clean energy (hydrogen energy) and photovoltaics. I teach the courses of the Physical Chemistry for undergraduate and postgraduate students such as electrochemistry, Kinetics, Thermodynamics, Electrolytes, Photochemistry, Quantum Chemistry, Catalysis, Surface chemistry, Nanomaterials and Solid state Chemistry. Supervising the research and reviewing the writing of the thesis of the M.Sc. and PhD students are a part of my job duties.
