Summary of the experiences and competences of Murat

Hello, Dr. Yılmaz from Türkiye.
I’m a chemical engineer. I completed my PhD at Ege University (Türkiye). I am currently working as a Research Assistant Doctor at Osmaniye Korkut Ata University. I publish joint articles with many scientists around the world. Collaboration is my hobby. My fields of work: Adsorption, Waste water removal, Activated carbon production, Photocatalysis etc.

Looking for help? Murat can help you with the following items

It is appropriate for me to share information and take part in organizations such as STSM.
