AMPM Guest Talk - Prof. Shengqian Ma

Mar 18, 2019

On March 17, Prof. Shengqian Ma from the University of South Florida visited the AMPM Center invited by Prof. Yu Han.

Prof. Ma gave an interesting talk on 'Task-Specific Design and Functionalization of Advanced Porous Organic Polymers for Water Purification'.

Cleaning up with cellulose

Mar 10, 2019

Environmentally friendly method for making membranes adds greener options for processing industrial waste. Selectively permeable membranes made from renewable plant-based materials could significantly improve the environmental credentials of the chemical industry. A KAUST team has tested the viability of cellulose membranes to show they can effectively clean wastewater.

Driving water down nanohighways

Mar 03, 2019

Self-assembled channels in a polymer membrane could greatly enhance extraction of water from gases. Removing water vapor from air and other gas mixtures, which is crucial for many industrial processes and air conditioning, could become cheaper and more effective through polymer membrane technology now developed at KAUST.

Feb 20, 2019

​On February 15, AMPM center held its annual Family Fun Day. Faculty, staff, students and their families were invited for brunch followed by a live BBQ at the Abdullah Monument park, KAUST.

Meet new faculty member Dr. Gyorgy Szekely

Feb 17, 2019

​The AMPM center is very pleased to announce that Dr. Gyorgy Szekely has joined the center as an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering. He will continue his research in the development of innovative methodologies to enhance sustainable separation processes.

Crystal clear solvent filtration

Jan 30, 2019

Covalent organic crystal networks generate high-selectivity and high-flux membranes for organic solvent filtration. Covalent organic materials with well-ordered porous microstructures could provide the membranes needed for technology to meet increasingly stringent environmental controls and be cost effective to produce.

AMPM Center members win the WEP - Research Center Award

Jan 28, 2019

Scientists from the AMPM Center have been acknowledged with the Research Center Award during the final gala of the KAUST Winter Enrichment Program (WEP) 2019. This prize recognizes their outstanding participation in the Science Fun Fair held on January 21.

A broader bandwidth for electrical devices

Jan 23, 2019

Combining a polymer and microparticles enables a new type of capacitor that could mimic the way the brain processes information. A simple fractional-order capacitor has been developed by a team from KAUST. Made from a single component, this device expands the range of frequencies that can be achieved by these devices, making them better at energy storage.
