Mohammed Ahmed Al-Anber was born in Jordan (Irbid) in 1976. He studied Applied Chemistry specialized in the Industrial Chemistry (B.Sc. & M.Sc.) between 1994 – 2000, Department of Applied Chemical Science, Faculty of Science, Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST), Jordan. He received M.Sc. degree in the Applied Chemical Science specialized in the Industrial Inorganic Chemistry. His research work focused organo-silicon polymeric materials. His thesis included the synthesis of chromium(III) containing organosilicon matrices as well as the chemical/ electrochemical reduction of chromium (III) sites to metallic chromium clusters. These materials were used as metallic coating in different approaches. Jordan University of Science and Technology JUST had funded the M.Sc project. In 2003, he obtained the Ph.D degree in the Inorganic Chemistry , Germany. The Ph.D. work focused on the topic of Organic and/ or Inorganic - Conjugated Units in the Synthesis of Multinuclear Transition Metal Complexes: Technological Applications. In this respect, bis(alkynyl)titanocenes have been used as organometallic -tweezers for the preparation of multinuclear transition metal complexes. The appropriate metals were bridged by pyridine-based ligands, benzene-based ligands, ligands of dienone type and ligands of miscellaneous of -conjugated organic building blocks. Furthermore, the project extended to produce a novel polymeric copper strain formed by helically terpyridyle surrounded Cu2+ units. These studies also include intermolecular electron transfer process a long the -conjugated spacer between the appropriate metal centers. Such species allow to study electron transfer, and are potentially of interest in, for example, homogenous catalysis, since synergistic and cooperative effects between the respective metal atoms is expected. The PhD project is funded by DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeischaft). My research interests are in the aria of Industrial Inorganic Chemistry, Inorganic Material Chemistry, Coordination Chemistry, Theoretical & electrochemical studies. He awarded Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) for two years, and one year was used in the period between Jun, 2007 to Jun, 2008. During this period, he received Postdoctoral in the supramolecular metal-organic framework and polymers. The project concerned in the preparation of supramolecular coordination polymer and molecular boxes. The novel metal–organic frameworks had been studied basing on their potential applications in catalysis, host-guest chemistry, and the promising photo, electro-, and magnetic materials. We are currently developing and designing a new metal-organic framework. This framework represent an extensive class of porous catalysis, in which organic structure are linked by metal units to form an open framework exhibiting ultra-high porosity. The research focuses on the designing the porosity within the metal-organic framework to affect high selective separation, gas storage and recognition. The preliminary results show an excellent direction toward the target. Environmental and Wastewater Treatment Another topic of his research activity concerns in environmental and wastewater treatment. In this respect two approaches are used: (i) utilization of natural inorganic materials, and (ii) physical and chemical Treatment. (iii) solar energy beside coagulation are also has a part of wastewater treatment story.
