Masoud is a PhD candidate in Materials Engineering. His main research interests include advanced materials synthesis and development. He’s now working on the development of smart porous materials for thermochemical conversion of H2O/CO2 into H2/CO using concentrated solar power technology. The project deals with the commercialization of solar thermochemical syngas fuel production. Indeed, in this technique, solar irradiation would be concentrated on some catalytic beds in which are capable of progressing some thermochemical (red-ox) reactions to convert the abundant H2O and CO2 into syngas i.e. H2 and CO. Finally, syngas mixture would be used to produce hydrocarbon fuels. For this purpose, porous ceramic substrates are developed which would be coated with advanced thermochemically enabled catalytic materials. The synthesis method is capable of producing porous ceramics with different ppi, porosity percent and pore shapes.
