DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

ELECTROCHEMICAL ENGINEERING

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 on processing natural resources for advanced materials by addressing issues on 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

N-DOPED CARBON AEROGEL MADE OF COIR FIBER

N-doped carbon aerogel possessing honeycomb-like structure of internal pores in individual fibers has been successfully prepared from coir fibers using our proposed method via one-step route of ammonia-urea system. The non-ordered porous carbon aerogel has very high surface area, >3500 m2/g and large pore volume. The aerogels have many potential applications such as as solid acid catalyst for esterifaction, electrocatalyst in metal-air batteries and fuel cells, and so on. 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
