Salam Titinchi is a Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis Research Group leader at the Department of Chemistry, University of the Western Cape (UWC). He obtained his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee in 2004. He is C2 NRF-rated researcher and serves on the editorial board of Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry journal since 2018. His h-index = 20 (Scopus) with over 1000 citations.

Prof Titinchi has more than 25 years of lecturing in the higher education sector at University of the Western Cape and University of Basrah.
Professor Titinchi’s research interests are focused on the fields of heterogeneous catalysis and coordination chemistry, and entail innovative designs for the synthesis of inorganic and hybrid organic-inorganic materials, coordination polymers and organometallic complexes for catalysis applications.  Another part of his research interest is focusing on synthesizing new organic compounds as anticancer agents.  Over the past years, new research directions have been established with a specific emphasis on advanced nano-materials for energy and environmental applications that focus on catalysts for other applications (Carbon Capture & Utilization and surface-modified nano-magnetic particles for water treatment).

Prof Titinchi has published more than 70 articles and conference proceedings in the fields of catalysis and materials as well as organic compounds for medicinal applications.
