Preseident: Masoud Mirzaei Shahrabi Contact: email@example.com
Masoud Mirzaei studied inorganic chemistry at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM), where is currently working as a full professor.
His interdisciplinary research is at the interface of inorganic chemistry and materials science. His works focus on the fundamental science and applications of metal cluster-based complexes and materials such as polyoxometalates (POMs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
Their prospective uses include medical, energy, and environmental applications.
His laboratory in FUM creates polyoxometalate-based frameworks, by using covalent and non-covalent interactions in creating open framework materials for specific applications like gas storage and separation, drug detection, and catalysis.
He has been chairman of the Zeolite and Porous Materials Committee of Iranian Chemical Society, since 2017 and received funds and awards for research and leadership from Iran National Science Foundation (INSF), Iran Science Elites Federation (ISEF), and the Academy of Sciences of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Professor Mirzaei ranked among top 1%International Scientists by ESI in 2021 (Web of Science).
