Abdirahman A Mohamod, Speaker at Catalysis Conference
Abdirahman A Mohamod
University of Kuwait, Kuwait


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.
