These facilities are specifically equipped for monomer and polymer synthesis (but also inorganic materials if required) that are then used to fabricate flat-sheet and hollow fiber membranes through a wide range of membrane formation methods.
The AMPM Center Analytical and Characterization Laboratory is well equipped with a wide range of instruments for the complete characterization of new materials as well as the structural properties of newly developed membranes.
Custom-built, state-of-the-art instruments to measure the gas separation performance of new materials and membranes.
The Liquid Separations Laboratory is equipped with versatile bench scale custom-made filtration systems for evaluating membranes in different aqueous and non-aqueous separation processes.
Functional Materials Laboratory headed by Prof. Mohamed Eddaoudi, is mainly focusing on the development of new strategies to design and synthesize new functional solid-state materials for different applications such as gas storage/separation, catalysis.
We create new nanostructured materials by designed synthesis to provide a platform for developing novel applications. We are particularly interested in both inorganic and polymeric nonporous materials which are characterized by large surface area.
The task of the Inorganic Membranes Laboratory is to design, synthesize and apply advanced porous membranes on challenging gas separations and wastewater treatment.
Our research efforts focus on the design, synthesis and applications of organic-inorganic hybrid materials that are functional and/or controllably responsive to stimuli such as pH, light, magnetism or particular enzymes.
The polymer based multicomponent membranes lab is a multifunctional membrane laboratory to manufacture and characterize hollow fiber- and flat sheet membranes.
