Masoud Roueintan, Professor of Chemistry

Biography:

After successfully completing the core course requirements for chemistry major at Mt. SAC, I transferred to University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where I double majored in Chemistry and Iranian Studies. Then my journey took me to California State University Fullerton (CSUF) where I earned my Master’s Degree in Physical Chemistry in 2014. At CSUF, I studied the kinetics of OH radicals reaction with naphthalene, styrene, and 1,4-dioxane molecules at 240 – 340 K and 1 – 3 Torr using the Relative Rate/Discharge Flow/Mass Spectrometry (RR/DF/MS) Technique. I also conducted some theoretical studies on the dynamics of OH radicals reaction with naphthalene and styrene for both OH additions to 𝛼 and 𝛽 carbons of naphthalene and H abstraction from 𝛼 and 𝛽 carbons of naphthalene by OH radical using Density Functional Theory (DFT). One of the most important discoveries of my life was during my tenure as a graduate student at CSUF, where I discovered my love and passion for teaching and decided to pursue a career in teaching chemistry at community college level.

Immediately after graduation, I was offered a part-time lecturer position at the CSUF Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry where I mainly taught a General Chemistry for Engineers course. In Addition, I worked as an adjunct chemistry professor at Mt. SAC, Fullerton College, and Riverside City College from 2014 to 2016. In 2016, I was hired as a full-time professor of chemistry at Mt. SAC and have enjoyed working with a diverse group of talented and motivated students and an outstanding group of educators campus-wide.

As a former Mountie, I am honored to be able to serve you. Please do not hesitate to send me an email if you have any chemistry related questions.

Spending time with my children, hiking, beach volleyball, gardening, cooking Persian food, and traveling.
