University of Alexandria, Egypt,Egypt
I am Egyptian researcher working at Institute of Advanced Technology and New Materials Research, City of Scientific Research and Technological Applications (SRTA-City), Alexandria, Egypt.
I've got a bachelors degree from the Faculty of Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Alexandria 2000, then I got a diploma in Materials Science from the Institute of Graduate Studies and Research (IGSR), University of Alexandria, 2010 followed by master's degree in December 2012 under the title "Preparation and characterization of Zirconium Vanadate doped with different elements and modifying its properties using microwave processing". In this study nano zirconium vanadate was prepared using sol-gel and hydrothermal techniques and the effect of adding different dopant elements as Cr, Cs and Ga in addition to microwave thermal treatment conditions on prepared nano zirconium vanadate physical, optical and electrical properties was studied. From M.Sc. Thesis I have a patent under the title "Synthesis of nanorods cesium doped zirconium vanadate to be utilized as selective ion exchanger" approved from Academy of Scientific Research and Technology.
My Ph.D. dissertation specific research topic was “Preparation of carbon nanostructures from waste material” and it is in the area of nanotechnology and environmental engineering whereas graphene, fullerenes and other carbon nano structures materials was prepared from PET bottle waste by simple, reproducible and affordable method which involves the thermal decomposition of PET waste in a closed system under autogenic pressure. The produced materials were examined in different applications as water treatment (dye removal) and energy (fuel cell).
