Research Summary

Professor WU’s research focuses on the fabrication of the membrane, the design of the membrane separation process and the mechanism of mass transfer, especially in Ultrafiltraion (UF), Gas separation and pervaporation(PV). Catalytic oxidation of natural products (turpentine) is another research interest. Recently, his studies concentrate on the fabrication and microstructure control of the nanoscale Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) material, and its application in the membrane separation, the drug delivery and target release.
