Dr. Hamzeh Kiyani has received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from Guilan University under the supervision of Professor Nosratollah Mahmoodi, Iran in 2009. He also holds M.Sc. degree in Organic Chemistry from the same University. He started his career as an Assistant Professor at the Damghan University in 2010. His research interests focus on the development of new methodology for organic synthesis, green chemistry, organic photochromism, and synthesis of heterocyclic compounds. He has published more than 60 scientific papers. He has been selected as a distinguished researcher in the School of Chemistry at the Damghan University within 2014-2016. Currently he is an Associate Professor at the Damghan University.
Gholamhossein Grivani initial research area lies in the field of synthesis and characterization of the Schiff base ligands and their V, Cu, Ni, Zn, Mo and Hgcomplexes and investigation of the structural features of them. In addition his group investigates the catalytic activity of the synthesized complexes as homogeneous catalysts in oxidation reaction such as epoxidation, oxidation of sufides and other organic substrates as well as immobilization of the synthesized complexes on the inorganic and organic supports as heterogeneous catalysts. they also investigate the thermal decomposition of the synthesized complexes in order to prepare nano metal-oxides particles. Recently they started to synthesis of the Schiff base ligands and their metal complexes containing ionic liquid functionalities, synthesis of Schiff base polymers, and their complexes, coordination polymers as well as the nano-magnet supports.
