If you can answer this question in just a matter of seconds, then you confidently know what you are good at. That’s good. It doesn’t matter if the thing you are expert in is associated with academic or not. It can be sport, science, social science, arts, IT…

Chemical Engineering Master and/or Ph.D student(s)

I completed my Ph.D study last year and it has been a great experience, I must say. I am going to continue doing research mainly because I am very interested to conduct research, I love publishing my work, I like presenting my work in conferences as well as I want to contribute to the advancement of technology and knowledge. Hence, in order to continue the research culture, I am currently looking for master and/or PhD student to work on a…

To A Glorious 2014 Year

I hope it is not too late to wish you a happy new year. Happy new year and I wish 2014 will be a successful and fruitful year for all of you.  I have been missing from blogging regularly here recently.

Chemical Engineering World: Industrial Welded Mesh Wires

Industrial welded mesh is basically a screen that is made of metal with wires that are placed in a crisscross way. This mesh is made of stainless steel wire ( or sometimes in other materials depending on its application) to avoid corrosion and rust. The industrial welded mesh is generally used for a number of purposes and available in different sizes and shapes. It is very much related to the engineering, procurement and construction industry. Application of Industrial Wire Mesh…

Chemical Engineering World: New Year 2013

Time move so fast that 2012 has just left us just like that. 12 days has passed since we entered the new year 2013 and I have not yet wish you, my readers, a very happy new year. This was mainly due to my hectic research activities such as writing several technical papers related to my study and this year I must submit my Ph.D thesis. How time move so fast? I began my career as an academician in July…

Chemical Engineering World: Propylene Present and Future

Polypropylene, acrylonitrile, propylene oxide, 2-propanol, cumene/phenol, oxo-alcohols, isopropanol, acrylic acids, and so many other derivatives are all obtained from propylene; a main building block in petrochemicals industry.  The increasing propylene-derivatives demand in the last few years has largely absorbed conventional available supplies of propylene as that from steam cracking of naphtha, and FCC off gas. On-purpose propane dehydrogenation is becoming a more economic favorable way to produce large amounts of propylene. Serious search for other routes for propylene production as…
