ChE faculty delivers professorial lecture on Membrane Technology

Dr. Julius Maridable of the Chemical Engineering Department and the current holder of the Mr. and Mrs. Huang Kong Chim Distinguished Chair in Chemical Engineering delivered his inaugural professorial chair lecture at the Ariston Estrada Seminar Room last November 24. His lecture, “Membrane Technology—Why does it click?” was an overview of the synthesis of inorganic-based polymers as precursors for membrane materials, films, coatings, and composites.

or his doctoral research, Maridable worked in the UNESCO Centre for Membrane Science and Technology in Sydney, Australia, where he specialized on the development and application of membrane materials. These studies dealt with the micro-structural and surface morphological characterization of inorganic polymers through the use of various novel characterization techniques. Maridable is currently integrating membrane technology in his research on the extraction and purification of fine chemicals and on the separation of proteinaceous products from enzymatic and biological processes.
