Areas of Research/Expertise

Jasmin Suljagic  is a professor of organic chemistry at Faculty of Technology, University of Tuzla. The area of expertise relates to transition-metal catalysis, synthesis and characterization of various catalysts and the application of palladium in organic reactions (Heck and Oxidative Heck reaction). This includes  the structural (NMR, FTIR, SEM) characterization of catalysts.

The researcher have also an experience in  biopolymer-surfactant, biopolymer-biological fluids interactions and characterization and modifications of biopolymers surfaces. Very important aspects of research are also the studies of interactions between surfaces and macromolecules in water, adhesion of macromolecules on lipid layers and interactions between microorganisms and material surfaces.
