AS Hamad Elgazwy
Ain Shams University, Egypt
Abdel-Sattar S. Hamad Elgazwy was born in Beni suief, Egypt in 1962, He received his B.Sc. (with a class of Honors Degree) in Natural Sciences and M.Sc on “Butenolides stereochemical control using sulfur rearrangements” from Ain Shams University and he joined Thomas R. Hoye’s research group at Minnesota University, Minneapolis, USA for his Ph.D 1997 on “Asymmetric Synthesis using Palladium (0) complexes”. He was appointed as Assistant Professor at Ain Shams University 1997. He then took up a postdoctoral position in 1999 on “Natural Product Synthesis” with Professor Dieter Schinzer, at Otto-von-Guerick Magdeburg University, Germany and in 2000 with Prof. Dr. Oliver Reesier on Synthesis of Asymmetric Catalysis” at Regensburg University, Germany. He was a fellow of Portuguese Foundation of Science and Technology for the synthesis of multi nitrogen heterocyclic compounds anti HIV” at University of Minho, Braga, Portugal 2001. He spent over two years with Professor Jose Vicente’s research group working on “Oxidative Addition Reactions use Palladium complexes” at the University of Murcia, Spain 2001-2003 and became Associate Professor in 2003 at Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt.
Research in the A. S. Hamad Elgazwy Group focuses on the development metal-mediated reactions with applications in organic synthesis. We are also developing single-molecule techniques to image catalytic reactions at individual transition metal centers. These single-molecule techniques are part of a big-picture, ground-breaking project to change the way chemists think about studying chemical reaction mechanisms: by actually watching reactions live, one molecule at a time. Ultimately, we are interested in learning about the reactivity of transition metals such that those lessons can be applied broadly to the development of new methods. These studies provide an excellent platform for testing mechanistic hypotheses and for building new fundamental understanding of metal-based reactivity. Organic chemistry and Organometallic Syntheses included Stereoselective, Aldol reactions, Michael addition and Asymmetric Catalysis were shown emphases now days. Our research group interested extended to Organometallic (Li, Sn, Si, Cr, Ni, Eu and Pd) & Cross Coupling & Oxidative Addition Reactions to apply for the synthesis of the highly sophisticated organic molecules having biological importance such as (anti-inflammatory & cytotoxic activity).
