Research Area

환경나노 연구실에서는 최근 모든 연구분야에 걸쳐 가장 중요한 과제가 되고 있는 나노 기술을 이용한 상.하수 처리 및 지하수 복원 연구를 수행 중이다. 특별히 나노 사이즈의 오염물질의 이동, 반응, 제거에 대한 현상 규명과 지금까지의 수 처리를 위한 재료들 보다 그 효율성을 극대화 시킬 수 있는 나노 사이즈의 수 처리 물질 개발이 본 연구실의 중점 연구 내용이다. 주요 연구 분야는 다음과 같다.
-Nano-material incorporated membrane for fresh water and energy generation: Carbon nanotube blended UF membrane, Thin film nanocomposite (TFN) membrane, Layer-by-Layer membrane, etc
-Nano-architectured adsorbent for water purification and desalination:
mesoporous materials for micro- and macro-molecular substances, adsorption desalination
-Nano-fibrous membrane and filter for water and air using electrospinning technique:
air-filter for ultra-microparticles, support membrane for TFN, piezo-electric membrane for MBR
-Remediation for contaminated soil and groundwater using nanomaterials
-Water reuse and reclamation by natural purification
-Contaminant transport and Modeling through porous media and nanomaterials
