HyNAE researchers visit paint manufacturing factory
On the 18th of August, 2015, researchers from the Nanotech-KMUTT Center of Excellence on Hybrid Nanomaterials for Alternative Energy (HyNAE) led by Assoc.Prof. Jatuphorn Wootthikanokkhan and Assit.Prof. Sililuk Chiarakorn visited Khun Alongkorn Nukulpukdi from the RPSC CHEMICAL Co.Ltd. at the factory in Nakornpathom province, Thailand. The objective of the visit was to discuss and explore feasibility for establishing collaboration between the research group and the company to run a project on the preparation and testing of photocatalytic paint prototype using the metal oxides as photoactive materials. These include doped TiO2 and TiO2/transition metal oxides/polymer composites developed by the research team. The meeting was fruitful and constructive. Both sides agreed to continue the project and strengthen the collaboration in the future.
