Request Expert

Expert has used his scientific knowledge and experimental skills in studding organic and inorganic compounds in solutions and solid states, formation the surface compounds in solid-gas interfaces (heterogeneous catalysis) and water-organic interfaces (reverse micelles), proton behavior in solid and liquid phases (protonation, etc.) and so on.

Expert has proposed new solutions of C-H activation (direct conversion of light hydrocarbons to heavier molecular products), production of aligned
nanotubular materials, CO2 utilization with producing chemicals.
He has used quantitative vibrational spectroscopy to determine the stoichiometry of compounds in the liquid and amorphous phases, on the surfaces and
interphases, composition of solvated shells.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Los Angeles, California - San Diego, California - Long Beach, California - Santa Ana, California - Anaheim, California - Riverside, California - Glendale, California - Huntington Beach, California - San Bernardino, California - Chula Vista, California
