Introducing our 2017 Fellowship Recipient:

Dr Ludovic Dumee, Deakin University


Titania (TiO2) has a unique combination of properties enabling a wide range of applications in the catalysis, bio-medical and separation area. Furthermore, this naturally occurring photocatalytic active material can degrade organics when activated with ultra-violet (UV) light. The application of TiO2 in anti-corrosion films and biomedical devices in the 1990s led to the development of smart coating materials nowadays commercially used to treat effluents which cannot be remediated with polymeric membranes. Dr Dumée will visit the Institut Européen des Membranes, which is one of the world’s leading research organisations for the design of advanced membrane materials, and perform patterned lithography by Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) on pre-formed TNT membranes, developed at Deakin University.
