Adeel Afzal

I studied Chemistry at Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU), Islamabad and obtained M.Sc and M.Phil degrees in 2002 and 2004, respectively. I received PhD in Chemistry from University of Vienna, Austria in 2007; where I developed chemoselective materials for various chemical sensor applications under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Franz Ludwig Dickert. In 2008, I joined QAU Chemistry Department as Interim/Visiting Assistant Professor of Organic Polymer Chemistry. My research interests and experties include chemical sensors, molecular imprinting, artificial polymers, sol-gel chemistry, metal/metal oxide nanoparticles, imprinting and surface functionalization of nanoparticles, thermosetting polymers and nanocomposites.
