Solhe F Alshahateet
Department of Chemistry
Dr. Solhe F. Alshahateet is assistant professor of crystal engineering and organic supramolecular chemistry graduated in 2002 from the University of New South Wales / Australia. He works at Mutah University since 2007. He received many awards such as Australian Research Council and Jordanian Ministry of Higher Education scholarships. He was engaged in many projects from local and international funding agencies. Dr. Alshahateet attended many conferences worldwide. He published more than 53 articles mostly in international journals dealing with crystal engineering and supramolecular chemistry involving industrial applications. In addition, he is working as a referee for many international specialized journals. Highlights of his research have been in the area of synthesis and characterisation of semiconducting materials, organic materials for industrial applications (functional materials) such as pharmaceutical industry. After completing his PhD (2002) at the UNSW, he undertook research in new synthesis chemistry as a Research Fellow at UNSW for about one year. Since then he had undertaken research into synthesis of new organic materials at the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences ICES, Singapore. He had a research visitor appointments at the University of New South Wales (Australia) and at the University of South Florida (USA). He has considerable teaching and research experience, recently in his supervision and co-supervision of postgraduate and undergraduate students in many countries worldwide.
Experience in the area of physical organic chemistry (adsorption of organic functionalities on silicon surfaces), synthesis and characterization of semiconducting materials, Drugs reformulation, Chemical X-ray Crystallography, Synthesis and structure of new organic inclusion compounds (host-guest chemistry).
