Prof. Shariff Enamul Kabir

PhD (University College London, UK)

Prof. Kabir has been actively involved in research for the last 37 years in diverse field of chemistry. His research findings have shown direct applications in developing models of more complex polynuclear metal sites present in

heterogeneous catalytic systems. His innovative research that he has pioneered is utilized by industries to remove sulfur from organosulfur compounds present in petroleum-based feedstock which is crucial both environmentally and commercially. More recently, Prof. Kabir, in collaboration with Khan’s group of Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission, has focused his attention towards developing natural and synthetic polymer blend composites. These elegant studies proved that the eco-friendly bio-degradable packaging material based on natural and synthetic polymers may be a good replacement of conventional synthetic packaging material. Prof. Kabir has built an active research group in organometallic cluster chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry in the department of chemistry at Jahangirnagar University. So far twenty-five Ph. D. and three M. Phil. students successfully obtained respective degrees under his supervision. Currently, fifteen M. Sc., M. Phil. and Ph. D. students are working on the various aspects of cluster chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry.
