Dhia A. Habboush, Ph.D.
Professor of Analytical & Inorganic Chemistry
Area of Specialization
Analytical/Inorganic Chemistry. Physical Methods (Theory and Instrumentation) in Inorganic Chemistry: Electronic (Ultraviolet—Visible) Spectroscopy; Vibrational (Infrared and Raman) Spectroscopy; Mass Spectrometry; Magnetic Susceptibility; X-Ray Diffraction; Thermogravimetry; Electroanalytical (Cyclic and Normal Pulse Voltammetry).
Primary research interest is molten salts chemistry: spectroscopic thermogravimetric and electrochemical studies of species and reactions (acid-base, redox, and complex formation) in molten salts.
Other areas of interest are strengths of oxo acids and supramolecular chemistry.
To promote a critical appreciation of the links between various areas of knowledge, mainly, science, philosophy and religion.
