Join us at the 3rd International Symposium On Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (iSAMN2019), which will be held from August 19-20, 2019 in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The keynote lecture on ‘Nanoengineered Membranes for Advanced Separations in Organic Media’ will cover our research at UoM and KAUST on the potential of biophenols, bamboo fibers, interpenetrating polymer networks and ion-stabilization for achieving high-performance nanofiltration membranes. You can read more about some of these published works in ACS Applied Polymer Materials, ACS Applied Nano Materials, ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering and ACS Nano.
Join us at the 14th International Conference on Catalysis in Membrane Reactors (ICCMR14), which will be held from July 8-11, 2019 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The invited talk on ‘Asymmetric Organocatalysis with Integrated Synthesis–Separation Membrane Reactors in Organic Media’ will cover our research on nanofiltration-enhanced homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. You can read more about some of these published works in ChemSusChem and ACS Catalysis journals.
Join us at the 12th conference of the Aseanian Membrane Society (AMS12) on Jeju Island, Korea, 3-5 July 2019. The invited talk on ‘Organocatalytic Membrane Reactor for Integrated Synthesis and Separation in Organic Solvents’ will cover our research on nanofiltration-enhanced homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. You can read more about some of these published works in ChemSusChem and ACS Catalysis journals.
Congratulations to Hai Anh Le Phuong for her award! Following the 2019 Postgraduate Student Conference at the School of Materials, Hai Anh was awarded the 3rd Prize in the poster competition in the Biomaterials, Polymers and Composites category for her work on the development of membrane separations for sustainable downstream processing. This research was carried out in the Blanford and Szekely groups at The University of Manchester.
Check out our new article on graphene oxide–polybenzimidazolium nanocomposite anion exchange membranes for electrodialysis featured on the cover page of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A by RSC Publishing. The work was done in collaboration with Profs Budd and Dryfe from Manchester, and Prof Zou from Masdar Institute.
Our group has been awarded the Green Impact Labs Gold Award at The University of Manchester in November 2018. Congrats to all group members, and special thanks to Abdulaziz Alammar for leading our group to success! You can read more about this sustainability initiative here.
