Electrochemical Engineering Lab

Official Web of the Department of Chemical Engineering -ITS

The Electrochemical Engineering Group of the Department of Chemical Engineering ITS aims to advance chemical engineering education by providing fundamental, theoretical and technological skills to bachelors, masters and doctoral students. The research activities of our group are to develop fundamental understanding of electrochemical processes and electrochemical materials technology. This knowledge is brought forward into the group’s teaching, applied research and problem solving for industries.

Our group works with both fundamental and industrially relevant problems important for the continuous development of a research-based electrochemistry education.

STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES!

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

Former PMDSU Students: Dr. Mar’atul Fauziyah, Dr. Puspita Nurlilasari, Dr. Fahmi

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

Fast charging – realita atau hanya mimpi

Hampir setiap hp di pasar sekarang ini menonjolkan kemampuannya untuk melakukan fast charging (pengisian cepat). Mereka sering melempar angka seperti “80% dalam 30 menit” atau “isi penuh kurang dari 1 jam” dalam memasarkan gawai terakhirnya. Istilah fast charging semakin populer dengan semakin maraknya kendaraan listrik. Fast charging dipandang menjadi syarat kunci keberhasilan ekonomi kendaraan listrik […]

Pembersih tumpahan minyak dari sabut kelapa

Struktur bahan baru dari sabut kelapa yang dikembangkan oleh Departemen Teknik Kimia ITS memisahkan minyak secara selektif dari campuran minyak-air. Struktur tersebut – aerogel selulosa hidrofob – adalah struktur yang sangat berpori yang menolak air. Ketika dicelupkan ke campuran minyak-air, permukaan aerogel selulosa menolak air dan menyerap minyak masuk ke dalam strukturnya yang memiliki pori-pori […]
