Applications

We apply fabricated microparticles for thermal energy storage, CO2 capture, photocatalysis, drug release, in-vitro digestion studies, etc.

Carbon Capture

We have developed molecularly imprinted polymer particles, non-molecularly imprinted porous polymer particles, and core/shell microcapsules for CO2 capture.

Thermal Energy Storage

In step emulsification, drops are formed when an interface between two immiscible fluids is subjected to a step change in the height of a microchannel. For instance, a fluid is injected through a long and shallow microchannel into a deep reservoir, “the well”, containing a second immiscible fluid, resulting in curvature imbalance along the interface. Our group uses step emulsification in microfluidic silicon chips to manufacture droplets and particles.

Dolomite Telos  System
Telos_Chip.png

Telos® is a microfluidic platform designed and commercialised by Dolomite Microfluidics for high-throughput microfluidic processes, including emulsion generation, micro-particle production, mixing and microreactions. Our group is using this platform in a research project in collaboration with an industrial partner for the scaling up the microfluidic production of drug-loaded particles.

Membrane emulsification

We use Shirasu porous glass (SPG) membranes (pictured) and Micropore’s microengineered membranes with regular pore spacing to prepare droplets and particles with a controlled size distribution in larger quantities but with the lower degree of droplet size uniformity compared to microfluidic emulsification.

Collaborators: Miyazaki Industrial Technology Centre and Micropore Technologies.
