- Mohamed Eddaoudi, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia
Dr. Mohamed Eddaoudi is Director, Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials Research Center. He is also Professor of Chemical Science in the Chemical and Life Sciences and Engineering Division at KAUST. He assumed his duties in August 2009.
Dr. Eddaoudi’s research is focused in the field of Metal-Organic Materials. He implemented the single-metal-ion-based molecular building block (MBB) and the supermolecular building blocks (SBB) approaches as means for the design and synthesis of functional metal-organic materials (MOFs). Dr. Eddaoudi has developed new strategies, based on the MBB approach, for the constructions of functional porous solids. Most notably, Zeolite-like Metal-Organic Frameworks (ZMOFs) with tunable extra-large cavities and periodic array of organic and inorganic moieties. Dr. Eddaoudi has introduced ZMOFs as potential tunable platforms for applications pertaining to energy sustainability and environmental security: Hydrogen storage, Carbon dioxide capture, Toxic Industrials Chemicals filters, Sensing applications, Catalysts immobilization, and Controlled drug delivery.
