Electrochemical Engineering Lab

Official Web of the Department of Chemical Engineering -ITS

WORK LOCALLY, THINK GLOCALLY

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 electrochemical engineering and synthesis of new functional materials derived from local natural resources such as lignocellulose biomass.

FASCINATING ELECTROCHEMICAL ENGINEERING AND EXCITING FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS

The research interests of the Electrochemical Engineering Laboratory range from synthesis and characterization of new electrode materials to to the design of industrial electrochemical reactors. Research in our group centers around nanoparticles and nanostructure porous materials derived from biomass and natural resources for their applications in electrochemical energy storage and conversion technology.

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 esterification, 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

Kebangkitan baterai sodium ke dunia baterai

Oleh: Heru Setyawan Teknologi sodium-ion adalah siap, murah dan aman, tetapi dapatkah teknologi ini menggantikan lithium-ion? Alex Scott Ketika mengikuti seminar internasional tahun lalu di India, salah satu pembicara kunci manyampaikan salah satu pertanyaan yang menarik: “Mengapa berpaling dari lithium?” Dalam edisi terbaru majalah C&EN bulan Mei (vol. 100, no. 19), mereka mengangkat isu tentang […]

MEET THE ALUMNI

Cicik Khoirun Nisa (PT Bank Mandiri)

Elkimkor mengajarkan banyak hal. Tidak hanya tentang nano teknologi dan nano partikel. Tapi lebih dari itu, bagaimana bekerja sama dengan orang dari berbagai macam level, dari background yang berbeda-beda dengan karakternya masing-masing. Very grateful, karena meskipun tidak ada partner skripsi dan tugas akhir tapi di sini semua saling membantu, bekerja sama dalam tim, tidak ada lagi saya atau kamu tapi adanya kami. Benar-benar nano-nano. Yang paling berkesan adalah ketika nungguin uji-uji sampai sahur, berangkat pagi pulang pagi, sahur di lab, tapi tetep fun dan happy. Pertama kali, nge run bikin graphene di ruang asam, terkesima lihat asap-asap merah hasil reaksi. Nge print di lab sampai pagi dan seketika lab jadi kayak percetakan. Setia nunggu Bapak dan Ibu untuk asistensi. Pernah pulang lebih cepet dan baru naik 3 anak tangga kos , dapat info WA grup, “Bapak di lt 3”. Seperti panggilan alam, yang udah ditunggu-tunggu akhirnya…auto nge gas motor dan lari-lari dari parkiran Tekkim sampai lab lt 3. Di Elkimkor semuanya sangat terstruktur dan jelas. Tentang progress, sangat membantu karena bisa nyicil PPT dari awal dan latihan presentasi setiap bulan demi masa depan sidang yang cemerlang. Banyak sharing ilmu, tidak hanyak berkutat pada apa topik penelitian kita tapi juga belajar apa yang sedang dikerjakan kelompok lain. Prof Heru dan Bu Widi begitu sabarnya membimbing kami semua. Terima kasih, Pak, Bu. Rindu gathering bersama Elkimkor crew. Semoga Elkimkor tetap jadi panutan, terdepan dan semakin jaya. Satu Hati Satu Elkimkor. Hidup Elkimkor Hidup ITS !

Beta Yogaswara Gustinenda (PT. Surveyor Indonesia)

Kenangan yang paling berkesan yaitu saat mengerjakan penelitian malam hari dan teman teman lab yang sangat menyenangkan, enak untuk diajak diskusi

 Muhammad Iqbal (PT. Mandom Indonesia Tbk)

Lab yg sangat menyenangkan, nyaman, dengan dosen-dosen pembimbing yg luar biasa. Memberikan kesan tahun akhir yg tak terlupakan.
