Md. Khairul Amin (মোঃ খায়রুল আমীন)
Assistant Professor

Md. Khairul Amin is currently pursuing his PhD in Chemistry degree at The University of Edinburgh, UK with Commonwealth Scholarship. He received his B.Sc. (Hon's) and MS in Chemistry from Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), Bangladesh. During his MS and Undergraduate Research, he worked with Professor Muhammad Younus on "Organic Synthesis". On September 15, 2015, he joined as a "Lecturer" in Chemistry at Khulna University, Bangladesh. Currently, he is working as an "Assistant Professor" since October 16, 2017. He was awarded Commonwealth PhD Scholarship, Vice Chancellor's Award, National Science and Technology (NST) Fellowship, Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education Scholarship, SUST Merit Grants etc. Mr. Khairul is also involved with different professional and voluntary organizations. He has published 19 articles in renowned peer-reviewed journals and international conferences. His research interest covers organic synthesis, microporous polymers, nanomaterials, water purification, and NLO.

Current Research
Organic-inorganic nanocomposites have recently received enormous attention because of their potential applications in material chemistry, electronics, optics, environmental chemistry, biology, information technology etc. Currently, we are trying to fabricate novel composite materials. The usability of the synthesized composites will be studied. Water poisoning for its nearby industries is becoming a great threat for Bangladesh. So, efforts are also being made to treat the wastewater using low-cost adsorbent. My research interest covers organic-inorganic synthesis, composite materials, microporous polymers, non-linear optics, wastewater treatment etc.
