Solhe F. Alshahateet
Dr. Solhe F. Alshahateet is Associate Professor of Organic and Supramolecular Chemistry graduated in 2003 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 70 articles mostly in international journals dealing with crystal engineering and supramolecular chemistry involving industrial applications. In addition, he is working as a referee and editorial board member for many international specialized journals. Highlights of his research have been in the area of synthesis and characterization of semiconducting materials, organic materials for and 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 research visitor appointments at the University of New South Wales (Australia) and at the University of South Florida (USA).
