Electrochemical Engineering Lab

ELECTROCHEMICAL ENGINEERING LAB

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 synthesis and characterization of new electrode materials to the design of industrial electrochemical reactors.

FASCINATING ELECTROCHEMICAL ENGINEERING AND EXCITING RESEARCH AREAS

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

Berat, salah satu kendala mobil listrik

Baterai besar dan penopangnya berarti kendaraan listrik berbobot lebih daripada kendaraan bensin. Salah satu kendala yang masih harus dihadapi mobil listrik adalah berat kendaraan, menurut Majalah Nature dalam edisi Oktober 2021. Melistrikkan kendaraan ternyata menjadikan berat mobil bertambah. Bensin atau solar yang sarat energi dan dapat terbakar digantikan dengan baterai yang berat. Dan sisa dari […]
