PhD Cardiff University (2006, Mark Elliott, cyclisation / desymmetrisation reactions of cyclohexa-1,4-dienes). Researcher and head of reference standard unit NODCAR , Egypt (2007-2008). Lecturer, MSA University, Egypt (2008). Appointed as assistant professor of synthetic organic chemistry, KSU, in 2009.
· Asymmetric synthesis; I have been involved in developing a number of new methods for stereoselective desymmetrisation of cyclohexa-1,4-dienes with concomitant stereoselective formation of challenging quaternary stereogenic centres. All of these fundamental areas are the subject of total synthesis of the tricyclic core of lycoposerramine S
Desymmetrisation via chiral sulfoxide side chain
Desymmetrisation via free radical cyclisation
Desymmetrisation via Prins cyclisation
· Synthesis of different heterocyclic compounds of anticipated biological activities
· Using of flow technology as a truly green and environmentally friendly process for the synthesis of furans and pyrroles.
