Our expertise

Research areas

Our research here at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash is organised into four key areas:

On any given day, we’ll have researchers working in any number of chemical engineering fields, including:

  • chemical reactor engineering
  • coal conversion processes
  • particle technology
  • advanced particle engineering
  • economic, environmental and sustainability assessment of process technologies
  • pulp and paper technology
  • surface coatings
  • rheology
  • biochemical engineering
  • food engineering
  • solid-liquid separation
  • corrosion
  • adsorption processes
  • design and synthesis of adsorbent materials using nanotemplating techniques
  • and nanostructured materials and membranes.
