Dr. Hassan Korbekandi ‘s Education 02/1999- 12/2003 Ph. D. in Biotechnology, titled: “Biotransformations using Peptostreptococcus productus”, Chem. Eng. Dept., UMIST, Manchester The potential of an anaerobic acetogenic bacterium, for reduction of C=C and C=N bonds to produce asymmetric useful products was studied. The growth and enzyme (phenylacrylate reductase) activity was optimised in a chemostat. The substrates and products were analysed using HPLC and GCMS. Between the prochiral substrates containing C=C bonds, niroalkens were reduced almost completely, and amphetamine was produced from 2-nitro-1-phenyl-1-propene. 09/1987- 09/1993 Pharm. D.
