The OKRA Flour

This study invented flour from mature okra. Okra, locally known as Lady's Finger, can be found easily in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. Rich in calcium,this vegetable consists of 90% water, 7% carbohydrate, 2% protein and 1% fiber, traces of minerals and vitamins B. But the shortcoming of okra is that it matures too fast. It turns tough and inedible that it eventually be toosed as food waste. Thus tis study processed mature okra into flour. Other than introducing a new type of flour, this invention also may stabilize the price of okra in the market. Okra farmers may venture into okra flour making for export.

Frozen Malay Kuih An Application of Dicaccharides to The Textural Properties and Sensory Characteristic of the Malay Kuih

"Kuih" is the term given to bite-sized food items in Malay Archipelago. Malay kuih can also be described as pastry; however it is different from that of the Western one. Malay kuih are more often deep-fried and steamed than baked, and thus very different in texture, flavor and appearance from the western cakes of puff pastries. Kuih are not confined to a ceratin meal but are eaten throughout the day and served fresh. However, certain types of kuih can be prepared in advance by freezing and seem more convenient than the kuih prepared a la carte. In this study, the textural properties and sensory quality of the kuih showed similar characteristics as a fresh one. To do that, special formulated sugar starch been added to preserve the texture of frozen kuih by protecting them from drying or freezing and its ability to suppress bitterness, stringency and harsh flavors.

Titano- An Excellent Air Purifier

Industrial development has brought prosperity to millions of people, but has also left a legacy of enviromental damage that continues to impact natural resources and ultimately the human well being. One of the largest problem now affecting the entire world is air pollution. As the world has industrialized and its population has grown, the problem of air has intensified. umans breath an average of over 3,000 gallons of air every day, according to the Enviromental Protection Agency (EPA), USA. Children have smaller body masses, so air pollution will affect them more quickly and more harmfully. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 1.5 billion people are breathing dangerously high levels of pollution every day. WHO also reported that polluted air is one of the top ten causes of premature death worldwide. Therefore, it is important to find a sustainable sollution to treat the polluted air to allow us to lead a safe, secure and high quality life in harmony with the globale enviroment.

Synthesize of Nanoporous Ceramic Membrane with Bimodal Pore Size Distribution Using Nanosized Template.

A solid template will be blended into bedmate sol to create secondary pores in y-alumina membrane after calcinations. The creation of secondary pores is tremendously important as they reduce transport resistance greatly in ceramic membrane. Apart from developing the ceramic membranes with bimodal pore size distribution, this research will study the permeability behavior of the ceramic membrane with bimodal pore size distribution using a stirred membrane cell. Pure water permeability test, molecule weight cut off test and dye separation test will be used to help understand its permeability behavior. As the ceramic membranes have great resistance to aggressive chemical and high temperature, the novel ceramic membrane is suitable for applications in the textile industry to remove residual dye as the nonporous ceramics membranes have a molecular cut-off of < 1000 Da. In addition, the novel ceramic membrane has better permeation compared to conventional ceramic membranes. Thus, the novel ceramic membrane will be applied in the textile wastewater treatment in the final stage of the research.

Synthesis of y-alumina with Uniform pore Structure and Enhanced Functionality in Oxidation Reactions of Styrene

The main objective of the research is to synthesize ?alumina with bimodal pore size distribution and reduced diffusion resistance in catalytic reaction. The solid template (polystyrene beads or vanadium oxide nanotubes) will be blended into boehmite sol to create desired pores in the -alumina after calcinations. Using the centrifugal force or filtration effect, the template will be self-assemble in the boehmite sol. Primary pore size distribution originally exists in the boehmite sol and the secondary pore size distribution is created by removing the solid templating units during calcinations. Creating secondary pores is tremendously important as the catalytic process occurs more efficiently in a material with bimodal pore size distribution. This is because the secondary pores reduce the diffusion limitations were to exist in a catalyst with unimodal porous structure. After synthesizing and characterizing the -alumina with orderly arranged secondary pores, the ?alumina will be applied in oxidation reaction of styrene. The influence of the transition metals incorporated and their structural features on catalytic activity and product selective in styrene oxidation will be studied in the final stage of the research.

Synthesis of nanofiltration composite polyamide membrane using monomeric diamines mixture and its performance evaluation.

Polyamide composite nanofiltration membranes are fabricated under different polymerization time, diamine ratio and organic phase content. The effect of polymerization time on pore size is not significant for reaction times less than 120s but the effective thickness/porosity seems increase drastically even at low polymerization time. Besides, membranes prepared with the addition of 0.05% 3,5-diaminobenzoic acid (BA) shows improvement in terms of flux and exhibits high rejection of divalent salt like metals ion. However, the flux started to reduce at higher BA content because of the decreasing membrane porosity. This means that diamine ratio is a crucial factor to produce an optimum membrane.

SUPER- K CCTO

Super-K CCTO is the newest electroceramic material with unusual dielectric properties ever found. CCTO means a ceramic compound, CaCu3 Ti4 O12 and Super-K was named after its shows a colossal dielectric constant with relative permittivity or K-value up to 12,000 (K-value of dry air is 1 and glass ~5). This permittivity value is much higher if compared to the conventional electroceramic materials such as BaTiO3 ~ 1,000, TiO2 ~ 100, SiO2 ~ 40 and remains relatively stable over a wide range temperature of 100 to 600 K(-173 to 327oC).
High-K materials are useful for capacitor (component which can store energy) and memory device (DRAM). The higher K-value, the more charge/energy can store, and we can make the smaller electronic devices by using Super ??? K CCTO. In microwave application, Super - K CCTO is very promising as a dielectric resonator to produce a smaller size of oscillator system for low microwave frequency ranges.

Spot Electroplater For Lead Frame (SPEL)

Spot Electroplater for Lead Frame (SPEL) have been designed to cater to existing problems face by the rubber masking technique, presently applied in lead frame manufacturing industries. One of the problems is the difficulty to seal the rubber mould with lead frames by uniforms deposit on lead frame. Consequently, this cause inaccurate plating on lead frame. The problems can be solved or reduced by implementing a technique that can act like a printer to draw any shape of silver plating area. This approach needs a technique which can produce spot plating. Uniform SPEL was invented which can plate a small area (as small as 1 mm in diameter). In SPEL, the electrolyte is continuous impingement to the substrate through a nozzle. The substrate (cathode) is connected to negative terminal and the nozzle (anode) is connected to positive terminal of the power supply. During the electrolyte impingement to the substrate, the currant is supplied to the system. Hence, plasting will occur and the nozzle outlet will determine the plating size. As a result, a 1 mm diameter circular spot of silver plating can be produced on a copper plate using 1 mm diameter nozzle, 0.05A current, inlet and outlet pump speed at 10 and 70 rpm respectively in 2.5 second plating time. SPEL is an environmental friendly technique as the usage of cyanide is minimal.
