B.Sc. in General Chemistry, awarded from the College of Science, University of Baghdad, Iraq on 28 June 1968 with the classification (good).


M.Sc. in Physical Chemistry, awarded from the College of Science, University of Baghdad, Iraq in 26  June 1972. The degree was taken by two years: First year : i)  Lectures and examinations    ii) Special research techniques “charge transfer complexes between   secondary amines and iodine”. Second year involving thesis entitled “The C-H Out-Of-Plane Vibration of Substituted Benzenes’ under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Gazi A. Derwish.


Ph.D. in Physical polymer Chemistry awarded from University of Sussex, Brighton, England, on 23th August 1984. Thesis entitled “Polymer Liquid Crystal” work under the supervision of Prof. Aubery D. Jenkins and Dr. David R. M. Walton. The project consists of preparation and characterization of three novel series of liquid-crystalline polymers. The liquid crystalline Properties of these polymers have studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), x-ray diffraction patterns, hot-stage polarizing microscopy, and electron microscopy.




I did a post- doctorate research for about eight months when I had finished my D. Phil. Work, in collaboration with both Prof. A.D. Jenkins and D.R.M. Walton. The work provided the preparation of novel poly-Schiff  bases showing liquid crystalline behaviour.
