Major Research Interests
Structural and Reactive Adhesives
Development of new formulations for high performance adhesives based on conventional resins (e.g., epoxy resins, acrylics …) and/or bio based polymers, in addition to analysis of failure modes and life prediction of adhesively bonded joints are of my great interest.
Modification of Polymer Surface
In polymer/coating systems, there are new insights for polymer surface modifications to get acceptable adhesion in interface region. Developing new methods to change surface hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity and or coating adhesion are well appreciated. The analysis of the main parameters affecting on surface adhesion, the study of surface energy and the acid-base interactions at the interface region and also the study of surface dynamics are the main aspects in this field.
Physical Chemistry of Polymers
The final characteristics of polymer product depend mainly on its microstructure and processing routes. Structure/property relationship of some smart polymers with extraordinary properties is of great interest. Other main fields of interests are the study of polymorphism in semi-crystalline polymers, conformation changes, solution properties and the polymer-solvent interactions. Besides, the study on the effects of some nanoparticles and or carbon naotubes in polymer matrix are of my interest.
Some Selested Publications
International Seminars abroad
There are several papers in the national and in the international seminars held in Iran such as "Iranian Seminar on Polymer Science and Technology (ISPST)" series from 2003 to 2018.
