Introduction
A PhD in Chemical Enginnering with Physical Chemistry/Materials Science as my main subject. I worked on synthesis of metal oxide materials via the nanocasting route and its applications in separation and chromatography with focus on the surface chemistry of these metal oxides. My research interest include materials synthesis, surface chemistry, catalysis, energy storage & conversion. I love football and watch a lot of association football in my spare time.

Article
The ability to comprehensively characterize biological samples, including tissues and body fluids, opens up new possibilities to diagnose and treat diseases and to better understand fundamental biological processes. For this purpose, suitable experimental workflows need to be designed. In this context, materials with particular chemoselective prope...
Article
The nanocasting method is a valuable tool for producing metal oxides with a well-defined nanostructure. However, the precise details on how the metal oxide is developed inside the mesoporous silica template remain unclear. In this study, we clarify how nickel nitrate species are evolving to nickel oxide and how they are redistributed inside mesopor...
Article
We present a study in which the intrawall porosity and primary mesoporosity of SBA-15 are independently controlled by modifying the strength of the molecular interaction that governs the formation of the material. The interactions are targeted at specific times during the process of formation, which results in selective tuning of the porosity, whil...
Article
Amino-modified metal oxide materials are essential in a wide range of applications, including chromatography, ion adsorption, and as biomaterials. The aim of this study is to compare different functionalization techniques on a selection of metal oxides (i.e. SiO2, TiO2, ZrO2, and SnO2) in order to determine which combination has the optimal propert...
Article
Silica particles were covalently modified with phospholipids and used as packing material for nano-liquid chromatography (nano-LC). This modification involved aminopropylsilylation of the raw silica particles using 3-(aminopropyl)-triethoxysilane, covalent binding of glutaraldehyde molecules to the aminopropylsilylated particles, and finally covale...
Article
SBA-15 exhibits a biporous character consisting of primary mesopores and intrawall pores ranging from micropore to mesopore size. We successfully demonstrated the removal of the intrawall porosity upon addition of NaI. The characteristic mesopore size, wall thickness, particle size, and morphology were maintained.
Article
The need for novel packing materials in both capillary electrochromatography (CEC) and capillary liquid chromatography (CLC) is apparent and the development towards more selective, application-oriented chromatographic phases is under progress world-wide. In this study we have synthesized new polyethyleneimine (PEI) functionalized Mn(2)O(3), SiO(2),...
