Current Research

‘CatEC’ is a research group of heterogeneous (photo)catalysis at KAUST Catalysis Center (KCC). The research focus on the development of efficient catalysts for new energy conversion system for sustainable development. We not only develop novel catalysts but also understand kinetics and reaction mechanisms by examining rates of the reactions experimentally.
Our research interests are in design, synthesis, and applications of “smart” programmable nanomaterials with emphasis on the controlled release  aspects of the systems. These engineered materials are utilized for medical (drug delivery), industrial (nanocomposites) and environmental (membranes synthesis) applications. The CRD Lab focuses on designing innovative nanomaterials that serve the ultimate goal of advancing technology. ​ ​ ​​​​
