About lab



1. Aquatic chemistry and its application to the analysis and solution of specific chemical problems in aqueous solutions.

2. Better understanding and application of membrane technology to water or wastewater treatment

  • Characterization of membranes using various analytical tools and nanoscale investigation of membrane surface
  • Synthesis and modification of membranes to improve performance and chemical/physical properties
  • Development of membrane degradation mechanism due to chlorination and bromination
  • Control of membrane fouling to reduce the maintenance/operational costs
  • Removal of emerging contaminants (perfluorinated compounds and pharmaceutical compounds) using membrane and membrane- photocatlytic oxidation hybrid system.

3. Development of innovative technologies for the treatment of contaminated water

4. Investigation and application of freezing desalination and hydrate-induced ice desalination
