  • Research Topic

Ultramicroporous Materials for Membrane Separations
We develop deposition techniques for the ultramicroporous membranes, involving zeolite and metal-organic framework (MOF) membranes. We focus the membrane gas separation (CO2/N2, CO2/CH4, H2/CO2) and membrane pervaporation (ethanol dehydration and IPA purification).
