About us

Our research focuses on the membrane science and technology that can directly contribute to environmental, energetic, and QOL (Quality of Life) issues. Our interests extend from fundamental membrane science to technological applications, from polymeric materials to inorganic materials.
Now we have four major research themes in our group:

  1. Silica membranes for gas separation and membrane reactors for hydrogen production
  2. Low-fouling membranes for wastewater treatment and MBR process
  3. Functional particles prepared by membrane- and/or microfluidic-emulsification technique
  4. Developing novel applications of membranes

Please contact Prof. Nakao (maku at cc.kogakuin.ac.jp) and Prof. Akamatsu (akamatsu at cc.kogakuin.ac.jp) for further details when you are interested in working with us as postdocs, visiting researchers, and (under) graduate students.
