Personal profile

Biography

Kei works in the School of Chemistry at Monash University as a Senior Lecturer.
Kei's research areas of interest are:
My research interests are in developing new synthesis and production methods for novel sustainable/environment benign materials and alternative energy materials based on the principles of Green Chemistry.
Green chemistry is an academic field in chemistry that is concerned with the design of safe processes and products. In addition, when green chemistry is used in material production, the new material should not only be more environmentally benign but also perform as well and be more economical than alternative materials. Green chemistry research should not be restricted to research in just using safe chemistry for processes or making safe products that already exist. New and innovative technology is key for green chemistry research and innovative technology will make the processes
