Ayman Ahmed El-faham
Faculty of Science-Chemistry Department
King Saud University
Professor Ayman El-Faham received his B.Sc. degree in Chemistry in 1980 and his M.Sc. in 1985 in Physical Organic Chemistry, from Faculty of Science, University of Alexandria, Egypt. In 1991 he received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry as a joint project between the University of Alexandria and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, U.S.A. under the supervision of Professor L.A. Carpino, where he worked on the synthesis of new protecting groups for both solution and solid-phase peptide synthesis. In 2010 he received his D.Sc in peptide synthesis. He worked on new coupling reagents during his postdoctoral work (1992-1999) at the University of Massachusetts in Professor Carpinos Lab. He received the University of Alexandria award in Chemistry in 1999. Following a position as Head of the Chemistry Department, Beirut Arab University, Lebanon (2000-2004), and as a Professor of Organic Chemistry and Direct Manager of both the NMR Lab and the Central Lab at the Faculty of Science, Alexandria University, Egypt (2004-2008). He worked at King Saud University, as a Professor of Organic Chemistry, Saudi Arabia (2008-2010). He worked as a -Dean for Community Development & Environmental Affairs (2010-2011), University of Alexandria, Faculty of Science, Alexandria-Egypt. He is currently a Professor of Organic Chemistry at King Saud University. His research interests include the synthesis of peptides under solution and solid-phase conditions, natural products, heterocylic synthesis, and biologically active synthetic targets, microwave synthesis.
Professor of Organic Chemistry focusing on the synthesis and characterization of peptides, peptide coupling reagents. Microwave synthesis of biologically active heterocyclic compounds.
