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

Berapa banyak unsur kimia yang dibutuhkan untuk membangun sebuah mobil?

Inventarisasi rinci menunjukkan bahwa mobil listrik lebih rentan terhadap tantangan pasokan bahan daripada pemakan bensin yang rakus Mark Peplow Mobil modern tersusun atas lebih daripada 2000 senyawa berbeda yang terdiri dari hanya 76 unsur kimia. Sejumput arsen, secercah kripton, secuil tantalum, dan sebongkah tembaga adalah sebagian kecil dari 76 unsur tersebut, menurut analisa yang melelahkan […]

Profil teknologi: Produksi kaprolaktam dari benzena

Barangkali kita sudah terbiasa, sering mendengar atau memakai bahan nilon. Pada pakaian dan perabotan rumah tangga, nilon merupakan serat penting, khususnya pada kaos kaki, pakaian dalam, kain dapat regang dan baju olah raga, koper lembut dua sisi, kain pelapis mebel, dan karpet. Pemakaian industri serat nilon meliputi ban mobil dan truk, tali, sabuk pengaman, parasut, […]

Litium – logam ringan jarang yang mengubah gaya hidup dunia

Dalam terbitan 1 Juli 2021, majalah Chemical Engineering dalam kolom Breakthrough Technologies mengangkat isu teknologi elektrokimia untuk memanen litium (Li) dari air laut. Litium adalah logam lunak, putih seperti perak yang masuk dalam golongan logam alkali pada tabel periodik unsur. Di alam, litium hanya ditemukan dalam bentuk senyawa karena reaktivitasnya yang sangat tinggi. Litium terutama […]

MEET THE ALUMNI

Deninta Nur Iwana (Business Application Consultant PT MSI)

Saya bangga menjadi salah satu alumni lab Elkimkor dikarenakan merupakan lab teravorit di angkatan 2013, sehingga untuk bisa masuk perlu perjuangan nilai yang tinggi. Setelah masuk menjadi salah satu member, saya merasa termotivasi dalam banyak kegiatan dikarenakan member-membernya adalah orang-orang yang berkualitas dan berwawasan tinggi. Dan juga memiliki kekeluargaan yang tinggi pula. Selama masa pembimbingan pun para dosen pembimbing sangat banyak membantu dan memberikan banyak pencerahan dan juga wawasan. Sehingga saya sebagai mahasiswi pada saat itu terpacu untuk menjalakankan penelitian. Semoga lab Elkimkor selalu menjadi lab terfavorit para mahasiswa dan sukses selalu.

Andar Kusnanto (PT. Chandra Asri Petrochemical)

“nge-run” malam-malam, mecahin alat analisa berkali-kali. Tapi alhamdulillah mengesankan dan “Recomended” banget nge-lab di elkimkor. Semoga elkimkor dan teknik kimia ITS semakin jaya.

Dyanros Rizkiyanto (Danone ELN Indonesia)

Terima kasih utk semua stake holder lab Elkimkor yg banyak berjasa dalam membantu saya menyelesaikan penelitian untuk skripsi sampai selesai. Terima kasih juga atas support Prof. Heru sebagai dosen pembimbing yg sangat berjasa sekali dalam membimbing penelitian kami agar selesai tepat waktu dengan hasil yang optimal.
