The Zeolitic & Nano Materials Laboratory at Western (ZNML-Western) provides expertise and houses facilities to carry out research on the production and control of the quality of crystalline porous nano materials materials including zeolitic like frame work materials such as MOFs, ZIFs, TiO2 nanotubes  (TNTs), TiO2 nano particles, photocatalyst,  etc. In addition, our group is concerned about  environmental application of nanomaterials as adsorbent ( e.g. CO2 Capturing and H2 Storage, air purification, separation), catalyst ( e.g. NOx Reduction, CO Oxidation, Biodiesel production)  and as a drug vehicle ( e.g.  Drug Loading, delivery and controlled  release).

The Zeolitic & Nano Materials Laboratory (ZNML) is open to provide professional  services on porous nanomaterials  research and development projects and also to promote research collaborations with industry. The Facility has many state-of-the-art instrument including laboratory Microwave, sonifier, super speed centrifuge, vacuum oven, programmable furnace, XRD, TGA, DSC, HPLC, GC/MS, FTIR, FT-Raman, UV-vis, particle size analyzers, BET surface area, etc.
