Assistant Professor:Tammar Hussein Ali

Personal Overview

I have over ten years of teaching and research experience where I enjoy the research activities, with the ability to come up with new design ideas for development purposes. My area of specialization is Organic pharmaceutical, Catalyst, Organic chemistry, Carbohydrate synthesis, and Materials (Nanoparticles & Porous material) specifically, the synthesis of smart responsive organic and nanoparticles materials for a wide range of application. This included multi-step organic synthesis, glycosylation, click chemistry reaction, nanoparticle and mesoporous material synthesis …etc.
