Dr. Tawfik Abdo Saleh is a faculty member in the Chemistry Department at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals. He has published many books and several papers in international refereed journals and conference proceedings, authored and edited several books and book chapters, and he is a member of several local and international scientific societies. He has supervised many graduate students. His expertise includes the synthesis, design, and preparation of materials, nanomaterials, nanocomposites, and hybrid materials and their applications. His expertise also includes materials characterization using various techniques.
Main research interest focuses on materials, nanomaterials, composites, polymeric composite, hybrid nanomaterials. We study the chemical and physical properties of the prepared materials by different techniques including FTIR, UV-Vis, Raman, NMR, XRD, FRD, TEM, SEM, AFM, in addition to electrochemical techniques like cyclic voltammetry, square wave, polarimetry, potentiometry, etc. In addition, I have broad interest in the applications of the synthesized nano-materials in different fields.
