For the last decade, RF electronics have become one of the fastest growing semiconductor segments due to the explosive growth of the wireless communication market.
The depletion of the conventional light oil reserves requires more attention to be paid to the heavy oil conversion and value addition. Developing more robust cracking catalyst and novel process to convert of heavy oils into more valuable... Know More
Alkylation is a very important industrial process. The current liquid acid alkylation catalytic process has the advantage of high selectivity but also serious environmental problems. The aim of this project is to develop solid acid catalyst to... Know More
The conversion of carbon dioxide into valuable chemicals is becoming increasingly important in fighting global warming. One of the projects in KOPRC I is the activation of CO2 and convert into syngas through dry reforming or hydrogenation into... Know More
There are two primary routes for the reduction of diesel engine emissions. One is through the improvement of the engine design. The other is to formulate the diesel fuel by increasing the cetane number and improved properties.
In an age where many of the items used on a daily basis are produced from polymers, a need to improve the processes currently employed are considered a primary goal. Polymerisation catalysts will be designed and developed which promote better... Know More
Microwaves provide an alternative route to heating petrochemicals and catalysts. Fundamental differences in the mechanisms of power dissipation lead to unique properties such as selective, volumetric, fast and efficient heating.
Gold nanoparticles exhibit a remarkably high - and totally unexpected - catalytic
activity for particles having diameters less than ca 10nm. This exceptional activity
This project is to develop and advance the deliberate design, synthesis and large-scale utilization of novel zeolite catalysts having mesoporous (nanoscale and below) crystal structure and tunable acid properties for the modern, advancing... Know More
Olefin oxides are the key precursors to surfactants and polymers. Whilst significant success has been seen for the direct epoxidation of ethylene in industry, the direct epoxidation of higher olefins suffers from low yields and poor selectivities... Know More
