The system offers an economical way to source essential battery material.
11 February, 2021Get a load of ZIF! Better delivery of cancer immunotherapy
An antibody loaded onto a porous metal organic framework is released by the acidic environment that surrounds tumors, avoiding the adverse effects of administering the antibody alone.
19 November, 2020AMPM Center’s faculty listed as Highly Cited Researchers 2020
We are very delighted and proud to announce that Professors Mohamed Eddaoudi, Yu Han and Omar F. Mohammed Abdelsaboor from the Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials Center at KAUST are listed as the world’s most-cited researchers for 2020.
01 November, 2020Professor Suzana Nunes receives LEWAS award
AMPM Center's Professor Suzana Nunes has received the Leadership Excellence for Women Awards and Symposium (LEWAS) Award for her expertise and contribution to the Chemical and Environmental Science and Engineering, Polymer and Membrane Science. Congratulations!
23 August, 2020A light touch for membrane selectivit
Membranes that change their pore size in response to external stimuli, such as pH, heat and light, are set to transform separation science and technology. Such smart membranes developed by KAUST researchers display tunable pore size, which means they can selectively separate compounds according to their size when exposed to different light wavelengths.
23 July, 2020New spin brings rapid rescue from oil spills
An intrinsically porous polymer with a very high internal surface area could be an ideal material for soaking up spilled oil. Researchers from KAUST have identified a polymer that can be formed into robust, reusable mats to rapidly adsorb spilled oil, fuel or organic solvents from the surface of fresh or salt water.
