College of Science organizes Photochemistry Day

The College of Science at the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) in collaboration with the American Chemical Society organized on Wednesday 25th April 2018 the ‘ACS-UAEU Photochemistry Day’.

Professor Ahmed Murad, Dean of the College of Science, explained that this event is part of the lecture series the college holds in collaboration with the American Chemical Society with a wide participation of experts and researchers from European and French universities to showcase latest research results in the field of photochemistry.

According to Professor Murad, such researches are of great significance in conducting nuclear energy research. This event aims to enhance scientific knowledge dissemination to achieve the directions of our wise leadership in achieving the national strategic plan and sustainable development in transforming UAE’s economy into a knowledge-based economy.

Professor Michel Sliwa, Head, Dynamics, Nanoscopy & Chemometrics Group Researcher, University of Lille, France, pointed out that new technology in photochemistry has attracted researchers and experts over the last years. The micro time of femtosecond has enabled them to get accurate information in order to understand various phenomena in the field of biology and engineering.

Professor Ali Nasser, American University of Sharjah, gave a presentation on laser devices used in the field of photochemistry and the mutual effects between substance and radiation. He added that all radiations are created by the energy transference. In molecular photochemistry, these transferences lead to a change in molecular internal energy following absorbing or releasing of electromagnetic radiation.

Dr. Na’il Saleh, UAEU Chemistry Department, delivered a lecture where he discussed his research on photochemistry and its application in reagent, energy transformation and pharmaceutical industry. He also addressed new research results concerning enhancing dye-sensitized solar cells used in producing energy and analyzing the features of unconventionally made substances used in detecting humidity and toxic substance in water, and in lab simulation of photosynthesis.
