Biography

Professor Shadpour Mallakpour, organic polymer chemist, graduated from chemistry department, University of Florida (UF), Gainesville, Florida, U.S.A. in 1984. He spent two years as post-doc at UF. He joint to the department of chemistry, Isfahan University of Technology (IUT), Iran, since 1986. He held several positions such as chairman of department of chemistry and deputy of research, department of chemistry at IUT. From 1994-1995 he worked as visiting professor, University of Mainz, Germany and from 2003-2004 as visiting professor, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, USA. Now he has published more than 381 journal papers and more than 400 conference papers and got more than 30 items of awards. The most important award to him was given for the selection of first laureate on fundamental research, at 21st Khwarizmi International award in 2008. He is listed as the Top 1% Scientists in Chemistry in ISI Essential Science Indicators Since 2003. He was selected as academic guest of the 59th Meeting of Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry, 2009, at Lindau, Germany. He presented many lectures as invited or keynote speaker in different national and international conferences or universities. He was member of organizing and scientific committees for many national and international conferences. He was also the chairperson of many national and international meetings. In recent year he focused on the preparation and characterization of polymers containing chiral amino acid moieties under green conditions using ionic liquids and microwave irradiation as new technology and bringing these aspects towards nanotechnology for the preparation of novel chiral bionanocomposite polymers.
