Biography:

Ashraf Aly Shehata serves as a Professor of organic chemistry at the Chemistry Department, Faculty of Science, Organic Division, El-Minia University, El-Minia, Egypt. He was awarded with a channel system program to complete his Ph.D. program under the supervision of Professor Dr. Henning Hopf, in the field of cyclophane chemistry for two years at TU-Brauschweig, Germany and was awarded with a scientific grant to be a scientific visitor to TU-Braunschweig, Germany from 28 November 1997 until 31 January 1999. He published about 82 papers in sound international journals. He was appointed as a Visiting Professor in Sultan of Oman. Besides he was awarded with The State’s Encouragement National Prize in Organic Chemistry (2004) from the Academy of Science and Technology, Cairo, Egypt and with DAAD scholarship for two months from 12 August 2005 until 12 October 2005 with Professor Dr. Henning Hopf. He has been selected on the Boards of Referees in the following journals: Journal of Organic Chemistry, Journals of Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Arkivoc. He was acknowledged by Shoman foundation for his research program and his list of publications. He has a joint research with Professor Dr. Alan B. Brown, Japan. The research group of Professor Aly is working for a long time on the chemistry of paracyclophane, and he is interested in study of synthetic approaches to new cyclophanes containing heterocyclic rings. Moreover, his research activity deals with synthesis of heterocycles which may have prospective biological and/or pharmaceutical activities.
