Welcome to The Inorganic Membrane Research Lab. The IMR-Lab is led by Professor Zhiping Lai of the Chemical Engineering Program in the Physical Science and Engineering Division at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and is part of the Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials Research Center. Our group's work primarily focuses on development of high-performance membranes of ordered porous materials such as zeolite molecular sieves, metal-organic frameworks, mesoporous silicas, etc., and their applications in gas and liquid separations, catalysis, chemical sensors, and wastewater treatments.
Topics of research:
1. Synthesis of high-performance membranes out of ordered porous materials and their applications in separations, catalysis and chemical sensors;
2. Fabrication of ceramic hollow fibers and their applications in wastewater treatments;
3. Synthesis and characterization of novel porous materials and their applications in renewable energy production and photocatalysis;
4. Fabrication of metal alloy membranes and their applications in gas separations and membrane reactors.
