2019年4月30日上午，在梁林校区1号楼506学术报告厅，澳大利亚科廷大学Shaomin Liu教授来我院作题为《Ion-conducting ceramic membranes for oxygen separations: state-of-the-art and future directions 》的学术报告。
New technologies to separate O2 from air with an aim to reduce the production cost for industrial use have captured the imagination of many academic and industrial researchers, as most large scale clean energy technologies require O2 as the feed. Current tonnage O2 production by cryogenic process is expensive and energy intensive because it operates at very low temperature and at elevated pressures. Dense mixed oxygen ionic and electronic conducting (MIEC) ceramic membranes offer potential to separate O2 from air with a significant reduction of O2 production cost. In this presentation, the speaker will give an overview of the progress of his group in the area of ceramic membranes for oxygen separation including early fundamental studies, recent scaling up and future directions.
Shaomin Liu is an ARC Future Fellow and Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Curtin University. He received his PhD degree from the National University of Singapore in 2002, and then worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology from 2002 to 2005. From the end of 2008, he has been working in Curtin University, Australia. He is the recipient of an ARC Future Fellowship (2013-2017) and an ARC Australian Research Fellowship (2008-2012). His research interests include inorganic membranes for gas separation, membrane reactors for gas reaction, nanoporous materials, solid oxide fuel cells, bioceramics, nanoparticles for antimicrobial property and water treatment. He has published over 350 journal papers with citations over 12000 (google scholar statistics).
