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.
Join us at the International Conference on Nanotechnology and Nanoscience, 28-30 September 2018, in Osaka. The keynote address on ‘Integrated catalysis–separation platforms for sustainable chemical manufacturing’ will cover our latest 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 Joseph Baugh for his award! Following the 2018 summer graduation Joseph was awarded the ET Woodburn Prize for the Best Final Year MEng Research Project for his work on the development of graphene oxide anion exchange membranes. The research sits at the forefront of membrane technology and the final report, which was submitted as a final year dissertation, was considered by academics of the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science to be of the highest quality produced by any student in Class of 2018. This research was carried out within the Szekely group, under the supervision of Levente Cseri and Gyorgy Szekely.
