Biography:

Dr. Abdirahman A. Mohamod studied Chemistry at the Kuwait University, Kuwait and graduated as MSc in 2013. He then joined the research group of Dr. Talal Al-Azemi at the University of Kuwait, Kuwait. His research work focuses on establishment of a new class of supramolecular organic compounds that have unique structural features such as an interesting cavity which encapsulate guest molecules to form host-gust complexation compounds. He received his PhD degree in 2018 at the same institution under the supervision of Dr. Al-Azemi. In his PhD dissertation, he developed new approach to synthesize mono- and A1/A2-dihydroxy-substituted-pillar[5]arenes via the selective removal of benzyl groups by catalytic hydrogenation. Also, he studied the host-guest complexation abilities for the synthesized pillar[5]arenes with long-chain-alkyl alcohols by 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) titration and X-ray-single-crystal diffraction techniques. Currently, he works as teaching assistant staff at the chemistry department in Kuwait university and he has published more than 15 research articles in SCI(E) journals.
