King Fahd University for Petroleum and Minerals
M Sharif is currently an Assistant Professor at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals Saudi Arabia. During his Doctoral and Post-doctoral research, he has been involved in Synthetic Organic Chemistry using either classical organic chemistry methodologies or transition metal-catalyzed synthesis of a range of synthetically important organic building blocks for diverse application. He is also interested in the development of novel efficient synthetic organic methodologies which allow for a “greener” synthesis of fine chemicals for potential use in material, biological and pharmaceutical applications. He has published one patent and 34 research papers in reputed reviewed journals including Chem. Commun., Green Chem., Molecular Therapy and others. He is very well familiar with modern tools of organic chemistry, catalysis and spectroscopy. His research-experience and expertise cover a wide range of topics in synthetic organic chemistry, green chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. He has also initiated several collaborations between Leibniz Institute for Catalysis, Rostock, Germany and other research institutes/Universities in developing countries.
