Electrochemistry & Corrosion Lab

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

ELECTROCHEMISTRY & CORROSION

The field of chemical engineering has broadened from the traditional one, that typically based on petroleum and petrochemical industries, to be an interdisciplinary area. We aim to advance chemical engineering education through research by utilizing natural resources for functional materials by addressing issues on materials processing for energy, biomedical, environmental and agriculture.

FASCINATING NANOMATERIALS AND EXCITING RESEARCH AREAS

Our research group exploits the utilization of solid wastes and natural resources by processing them to become advanced functional nanomaterials; their unusual structural and surface properties for various applications. Research in our group centers around nanoparticles and nanostructure porous materials since these offer unprecedented level of flexibility and control. The versatility of their composition and structure allows envisioning new applications in energy, environmental, biomedical and agricultural. Read more

STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES!

Are you interested in obtaining master or doctoral degree in chemical engineering by doing your project in our group? We accept students from industries for master/doctor with a flexibilty doing their project on site. Please contact us with your curriculum vitae.

LIGHTWEIGHT CELLULOSE AEROGEL MADE OF COIR FIBERS

Cellulose aerogel has excellent properties due to its very high surface area and large pore volume. We developed a process to manufacture such materials from coir fiber and other abundant natural biomass. The aerogel have many potential applications such as adsorbent for dyes and absorbent for oil spill. It may be carbonized to produce carbon aerogel having extraordinary properties suitable for many applications. Read more

HYDROPHOBIC SILICA AEROGEL MADE OF BAGASSE ASH

Starting from bagasse ash, solid waste remaining after combusting bagasse to produce energy in sugar mill, silica aerogel and other mesoporous silica have been successfully synthesize under ambient pressure. The porous silicas have many potential applications such as for dessicant, slow-released fertilizer, catalyst host, heat insulation, etc. Read more

SPHERICAL & CUBIC MAGNETITE NANOPARTICLES

Magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles have many potential applications for environment, biomedical, and energy storage and conversion. We proposed been a simple electrooxidation of iron in water. No chemicals other than water are used. Alternating monopolar configuration has been demonstrated to be able to produce high-throughput production of the nanoparticles. The electrochemical reactor is easy to scale-up for mass production. Read more

Hidrogen sebagai sistem energi masa depan

Oleh: Heru Setyawan Majalah Chemical Engineering edisi 6 Agustus 2020 menurunkan berita khusus tentang teknologi energi hidrogen di beberapa negara: Inggris, Jerman, China, Spanyol, Amerika dan Portugis. Di Inggris, National Grid Group PLC (London) yang bermitra dengan Northern Gas Network (NGN) dan Fluxys Belgium meluncurkan fasilitas uji energi hidrogen diluar jaringan jenis pertama untuk memahami […]

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) pada pendidikan tinggi teknik

Oleh: Heru Seyawan Pandemi COVID-19 telah menyebabkan banyak sekolah tutup, mulai dari SD sampai perguruan tinggi. Ini menyebabkan kebutuhan bahan pembelajaran daring meningkat tajam. Sebelum pandemipun, perguruan tinggi telah dihadapkan pada tantangan banyaknya jumlah calon mahasiswa pendaftar dan yang diterima, termasuk ITS. Apalagi kebijakan ITS sekarang yang terus berupaya untuk menambah jumlah mahasiswanya tanpa diimbangi […]

Kajian pustaka dan menuliskannya dalam makalah ilmiah

Oleh: Heru Setyawan Seperti telah diuraikan sebelumnya, tujuan dari sebuah makalah ilmiah adalah untuk menjelaskan mengapa penelitian dilakukan, bagaimana melakukannya, apa yang ditemukan, dan apa makna temuan tersebut (disini). Jawaban dari pertanyaan pertama umumnya diuraikan dalam bagian Pendahuluan (Introduction). Pendahuluan harus memberikan informasi tentang: (i) posisi penelitian dalam konteks penelitian sebelumnya yang dilakukan peneliti lain, […]
