The field of chemical engineering has broadened from the traditional one, that based on petroleum and petrochemical industries, to be an interdisciplinary area. We aim to advance chemical engineering education through advanced research in electrochemical engineering and particle technology by addressing issues on materials processing for energy, biomedical, environmental and agriculture.
We conduct research on synthesis of particles by electrochemical and sol-gel method, coating for corrosion protection and thin film, recovery of valuable materials from solid waste such as silica from bagasse ash and geothermal sludge to be converted into advanced materials, e.g. silica aerogel, amine-grafted silica for CO2 adsorbent, utilization of biomass for advanced functional materials (e.g., coconut shell for graphite and graphene; coconut choir for cellulose aerogels and highly porous carbon), designing of electrocatalyst for ORR based on oxides of transition metals, and so on.
