Mohsen Adeli started his independent academic carrier at Lorestan University in 2005, where he was active as assistant professor in the field of functional carbon nanomaterials, including carbon nanotubes and dendritic polymers. Then, he moved to the Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of Sharif University of Technology for a research fellowship in 2007. He moved to the Department of Chemistry in Sharif University of Technology in 2008 for two years. He returned to Lorestan University in 2009 as associate professor. In 2013, He was promoted to the rank of full professor in chemistry. In 2014, he was invited to the Institute of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, as a guest professor within the collaborative research center (SFB) 765.
His research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of functional hybrid nanomaterials.
Functionalization of carbon-based nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes, graphenes and fullerenes by polymers and copolymers for biomedical applications is the focus of his current research. Supramolecular interactions of these functional hybrid nanomaterials to obtain more complex systems with new properties are also amoung his interest.
Over the past several years his group has developed new ways to functionalize and modify carbon based nanomaterials. He has established several cooperations with physicists, pharmacists and material scientists to investigate the new properties and biomedical applications of these functional carbon based nanomaterials.
He has been actively teaching in lectures/seminars/lab courses in organic chemistry and polymer chemistry at bachelor, master and PhD levels. He has also estabilished a basic course for the postgraduate students on functionalization of carbon based nanomaterials and their biomedical applications at Freie Universität Berlin.
