讲座安排:

 

报告(一)

题目:Education Programs at University of North Texas (UNT)

时间:313日(星期三)上午10:00-11:30

地点:明德楼 C908

报告摘要:

In this seminar, first, an introduction of the American education system will be given first. The information will help those who has a plan to pursue further education in the U.S. in terms of selecting the major and school in North America, in a consideration of the locations, cost, and other factors. Then, an overview of the programs at University of North Texas will be provided. The seminar will focus on discussing the Materials Science and Engineering and Mechanical and Energy Engineering programs at UNT, from which both have the chemical engineering components.

 

报告(二)

题目:Surface property characterization of bio-based material

时间:313日(星期三)下午15:30-17:00

地点:明德楼 C908

报告摘要:

The seminar will give an introduction of the bio-based materials, such as wood, agriculture stem, and other lignocellulosic materials, and their characteristics compared to other organic materials. The unique surface characteristics of biomaterials will be summarized. The interfacial bonding behavior is very important to the quality of the composite products, and the surface properties of the constituents in the biocomposites play an important role to the adhesion. Surface property characterization techniques of bio-based materials, such as contact angle analysis (CAA), inverse gas chromatography (IGC), will be discussed in terms of polar and nonpolar components, as well as the acid and based interaction for the surface energy. The pros and cons of these techniques are discussed.

 

 

报告(三)

题目:Biomass derived activated carbon from self activation process

时间:314日(星期四)上午9:00-10:30

地点:明德楼 C908

报告摘要:

 Self-activation is a green process for activated carbon fabrication, which takes advantage of the gases emitted from the pyrolysis process of biomass to activate the converted carbon. Compared with conventional activation processes, self-activation which saves the activating agents and decreases the environmental impact. In this study, pine wood-derived activated carbons were fabricated through self-activation process. The structures of the obtained activated carbon were characterized by a surface area and pore volume tester, XRD pattern, Raman spectra, SEM and TEM. observations. The as-obtained activated carbon showed favorable features with high specific surface area (2738 m2 g−1) and pore volume (2.209 cm3 g−1), which are favorable for electrochemical energy storage. Using the obtained activated carbon, a lithium-ion battery anode was prepared. A high-performance Li-ion battery was successfully assembled from the high performance activated carbon through the self-activation process. The efficiency on the water cleaning using the high performance AC is also discussed.

 

报告(四)

题目:Soy protein based film and adhesives

时间:315日(星期五)上午9:00-10:30

地点:明德楼 C908

报告摘要:

The seminar summarized the past 10-year research work in our group related to the soy protein based products, such as polymer film and adhesives. Currently, most wood panels in the world are fabricated using formaldehyde-based resins, such as phenol formaldehyde (PF), urea formaldehyde (UF), and etc. These petroleum-based adhesives have brought serious environmental concern because of the formaldehyde emission. Therefore, development of bio-based adhesives become a promising alternative. The soy protein material is low cost, renewable, and biodegradable. However, the applications of the soy protein-based adhesives are limited by their low bonding strength and poor water resistance. In this seminar, some of our research work on the modifications of the soy protein based adhesives, such as incorporation cellulose nanowhisker, epoxidized soy protein isolated film will be discussed.
