Dr. Anwar Ahniyaz is senior researcher at RISE Bioeconomy and Health Division. He received a B. Sc. in Chemistry at Xinjiang University in 1991 and a D. Sc. in Material Science at Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2002 in the field of synthesis and characterization of functional nanoparticles.
During 1994-1999, Anwar worked as a Lecturer at the Xinjiang University.
During 2002-2005 Anwar worked as a researcher at the Materials and Structures Laboratory of Tokyo Institute of Technology with a close collaboration with Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation and Rhodia (Now Solway) and contributed to the development of inorganic-organic nanocomposites for contact lens applications , Inorganic phosphors for lighting applications, electrode materials development Li-ion Battery applications and ceria-zirconia solid solution nanoparticle-based three-way catalysts development for automotive exhaust gas treatment applications.
During the 2005-2007, Anwar worked as a researcher at Stockholm University, contributed to the synthesis and development of mesoporous silica and various inorganic nanoparticles.
During 2007-2015, Anwar worked as a project manager at YKI (Institute for Surface Chemistry)/SP (SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden)/RISE and dealt with problem-solving and trouble shootings relevant to nanomaterials and surface chemistry.
In 2016 Anwar was appointed as a Senior Research at RISE. Anwar has published over 40 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals in the field of nanomaterials and surface technology and he is a co-inventor of 5 patents.
Anwar has led many national projects and initiated many large European projects in the area of nanoparticles and surface chemistry. Currently, Anwar is focusing on surface chemistry of nanomaterials. He has an extensive network of collaborations and his research areas include, but not limited solid oxide fuel cells, Li-ion batteries, solar cells, membranes/separators, catalysts, CO2 capture and storage, metal organic frameworks, zeolites, mesoporous silica, hybrid latex, foams, nanoparticle synthesis, surface functionalization and dispersion of nanoparticles, coatings and thin films (UV protection, anti-corrosion, self-cleaning, anti-bacterial, anti-soiling, fire-retardant, scratch resistance, IR reflective etc), inks, adhesives, surfactants, wetting and spreading, ceramics, concrete, dental materials, carbon material (CNTs, CNFs, carbon fibers, graphene, graphite) biomaterials (HAP, CaCO3, Titanium alloys), pigments, powder technology and smart packaging materials
