Mohammad Abu Al-Haj

Dr. Mohammad Abul Haj is an Associate Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Crystal Engineering. Holding a PhD degree in Coordination Chemistry from Granada University In the year 2000. PhD thesis was supervised by Prof. Juan Manuel Salas and Prof. Miguel Quiros. Dr. Mohammad had finished his B.Sc. degree from Bier-Zeit University in 1987. He worked at Al-Quds University at the department of Medical Technology.

Dr. Mohammad Abul Haj research is in field of Coordination Chemistry, in particular coordination compounds of Platinum group metals, investigation their synthesis, Characterization and biological activity. In addition, he experienced synthesis of coordination compounds with other metals (Cu, Ni, Co, Fe) investigating their characterization and physical applications. Dr. Mohammad is experienced in the coordination compounds of silver, he investigated synthesis Characterization, Crystal structure and application.

In 2011 he was awarded Fulbright visiting Professor Grant at Kansas State University, where he worked with Distinguished Professor Christer B. Aakeröy. He worked in research in the field of Crystal Engineering and Supramolecular Chemistry. After that he started new line of research in this field at Al-Quds University. During 2014-2018 he was the head of the Chemistry and Chemical Technology Department and Coordinator of the Applied Industrial Technology Graduate program till he was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology.
