Golden opportunities in Liquid Crystal Nanoscience Innovation technologiesDr. Koushik Pal : University Technology of Malaysia
Enhancing the performance of static memory as well as reliability of electro-optical switchable devices based on hybrid nano structures dispersed liquid crystals (NDLC) and graphene oxide dispersed liquid crystal (GDLC) cells offers a unique alternative choice owing to their costeffective assembly. We synthesized high yield novel organic, inorganic, graphene oxide nano structures (e.g. nano-wires, nano-rods, nano-spikes, nano-sheets, nano-ribbons) by using a rapid and simple solvo-chemical, CVD, solg-gel, hydrothermal and microwave assisted wet chemical route. Those novel nano-structures are exploring spectroscopic characterizations (e.g. FE-SEM, HR-TEM, AFM, XRD, Micro-Raman,UV.Vis-NIR, XPS, FTIR, DSC-TGA,Polarizing Optical Microscopy, Impedance analyzer dielectric system, Digital oscilloscope, Semiconductor Characterization System). Novel nanomaterials incorporating hydrogen bonded liquid crystal (HBLC) are a young emerging field of Liquid Crystal Nanoscience (LCN) and already have received promising attention as well as important discoveries. The core novel work is focused on the experimental investigation, using a combinational view of self-assembly of hydrogen bonded liquid crystal dispersion was achieved in a controllable manner. The resulting product has a very unique and useful behavior, e.g. the polarization of the emission from semiconductor nano-structure can be controlled by an external bias. A range of remarkable characteristics are then presented, organized into sections describing the optical, electrical, electro-optical phase transition and DC bi-stable switching properties. Other display parameters such as: spontaneous polarization, rotational viscosity, switching response, dielectric constants, and low frequency relaxation also investigate in complex hybrid nanomaterials-HBLC composite matrix are found quite convincing in recent trends of novel technologies. Moreover, polarizing optical microscopy (POM) revealing various phases in different textural appearance along with static memory proof the influence of the nano-materials. Thus, the brand new scientific challenges will attribute for developing versatile applications in brilliant discoveries opto electronics, long stability static memory, electro-optic cell device, novel switchable devices as well as high contrast smart display technologies in multidisciplinary research of immense competence of a great enthusiasm for Materials Science.

ADVANCED IN BIOMASS AND BIOGAS ENERGYDr. Abdeen Mustafa Omer : BSc, MSc, PhD, Associate Researcher
There is strong scientific evidence that the average temperature of the earth’s surface is rising and this may be attribute to increased concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2), and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere as released by burning fossil fuels. One of the chief sources of greenhouse gases is burning of fossil fuels. Biogas from biomass appears to have potential as an alternative energy source, which is potentially rich in biomass resources. In the present study, current literature is reviewed regarding the ecological, social, cultural and economic impacts of biogas technology. In this communication an attempt has been made to give an overview of present and future use of biomass as an industrial feedstock for production of fuels, chemicals and other materials. However, to be truly competitive in an open market situation, higher value products are required.

Experimental studies on high-quality synthetic wood production using industrial waste and mixed waste catalystDr. Marisa Soares Borges : Post-Doctorate - Högskolan i Borås, University of Borås in Sweden, Doctor degree in Chemistry Engineering, Master degree in Materials Engineering, Chemist
Throughout different areas of environmental sustainability, such as disaster risk reduction and management, decision and policy making; solid waste management is indeed a thematic matter in an important field of current interest. A typical solid waste management system displays an array of problems, these public health, environmental, and management issues are caused by various factors which constrain the development of effective solid waste management systems. If the lack of knowledge, experience and the awareness of the need for a change in waste management is inversely slow. However, the circular economy, which has suddenly been put under the spotlight, aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits. The aim of this paper is to show the development of a matrix to explain three categories of waste which result from the failure of users to properly use a resource. These categories were illustrated by examples built on practical industrial waste measurements, as a development process. Different facets of waste from an activity perspective were categorized; so they can contribute to improved waste management practices. It is shown an application of the industrial solid waste (polypropylene waste, peels of rice and zinc stearate) and an assessment of what could be the sustainable wood of the future.
Nano-sized CS-Pollucite zeolite synthesized under mild condition and its catalytic behaviorGhadah Mohammad Aleid : Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang, Malaysia
Nanoscale cesium-pollucite zeolite (ANA topology) free of organic template is synthesized free of organic template. The crystallization is taken place at mild temperature and pressure (180 °C, 22 bar) compared to previous works. Powder XRD analysis reveals that the nanocrystals can be crystallized from a clear precursor solution of 16.5SiO2:1Al2O3:5.3Cs2O:175H2O within 50 h. The resulting nanocrystals exhibit trapezohedron shape and has a Si/Al ratio of 4.11. The nanocrystals possess a mean particle size of 79.4 nm and they are colloidally stable in water. In addition, Perkin condensation of benzaldehyde with acetic anhydride catalyzed by nanosized Cs-pollucite zeolite under non-microwave instant heating condition is also demonstrated and discussed.
Studies on the Effective Removal Efficiency by Peanut Hulls (Red and White) Supported MagneticallyDr. Ohn Ohn Soe: Loikaw University, Department of Chemistry, Myanmar
Magnetically responsive composite materials, prepared by medication of diamagnetic materials by magnetic fluids (ferrofluids) have already found many important applications in various areas of biosciences, medicine, biotechnology, environmental technology etc. The present work is concerned with the raw peanut hull (RPH) and magnetically peanut hull (MPH) as a biosorbent for waste water treatment. Characterizations of biosorbent were carried out by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT IR), X –Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). FT-IR images showed the presence of hydroxyl, carbonyl and carboxyl groups which can involve in the biosorption process. The major elements of samples were analyzed by using X- Ray Fluorescence. The surface features and morphological characteristics of RPH and MPH by SEM. Raw peanut hulls (RPH) , Ferro fluid and Prepared magnetic peanut hulls (MPH) were used for the investigation of colour removal efficiency, heavy metal removal efficiency by using model solution and turbidity removal efficiency was also carried out from beer factory, tap water (laboratory), and pun haling river water.
