Ahmed Eid Receives MS2Discovery Research and Travel Grant

Ahmed Eid is the recipient of a MS2Discovery Research and Travel Grant Award in 2021.  This award will support his enrolment to the upcoming 11th Annual Nano Ontario conference, Nov 4th, 2021, Ryerson University to present his research findings.  His research is about "CO2 reduction: surface intermediates formation mechanism " which aims to explore the mechanism of CO2 reduction over selected catalysts to provide a rational design approach, using both theoretical and computational approaches.  Also this grant supported his research paper on the exploration of the adsorption behavior of bovine serum albumin (BSA) protein over hematite nanoparticles using theoretical modeling.

“Using this in-depth exploration of CO2 reduction reaction mechanism, more advanced electro-catalysts can be designed with higher reduction efficacy.  The current work focuses on using ATR-FTIR as a surface examination technique coupled with scanning an applied external electrical potential to optimize both electro catalyst reduction efficiency and mostly to examine the formed adsorbed intermediates over the surface of the catalyst.  In addition, computational modeling using DFT and Monte Carlo simulations will provide a rational and confirmation for the obtained results”.

Ahmed Eid is a student of the MS2Discovery Interdisciplinary Research Institute.  His research interests include catalysis, electrochemistry, spectrochemistry and Computational Chemistry Methods.  He is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Wilfrid Laurier University under the supervision of Professor Hind Al-Abadleh.

Ahmed completed his PhD of Chemistry from Mansoura University, Egypt and previously worked at University of Sains Malaysia (USM), Malaysia as a lecturer and researcher.
