Journal Article
Ahmad, A. L., Jawad, Z. A., Low, S. C., & Zein, S. H. (2014). A cellulose acetate/multi-walled carbon nanotube mixed matrix membrane for CO2/N2separation. Journal of membrane science, 451, 55-66. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.memsci.2013.09.043

Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions have been rising indiscriminately and are becoming a major contributor to Earth's greenhouse effect. One of the most promising means of separating the hazardous CO 2 gas is to develop a cost effective and high-perform...

Comparison of the pervaporation performance of various types of carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites in the dehydration of acetone (2013)
Journal Article
Yeang, Q. W., Zein, S. H. S., Sulong, A. B., & Tan, S. H. (2013). Comparison of the pervaporation performance of various types of carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites in the dehydration of acetone. Separation and purification technology, 107, 252-263. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.seppur.2013.01.031

The present work focuses on the functionalisation of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in order to improve the compatibility and dispersion of MWCNTs in a chitosan (CS) matrix. The resultant PVA-MWCNT/CS nanocompos... Read More about Comparison of the pervaporation performance of various types of carbon nanotube-based nanocomposites in the dehydration of acetone.
