Sunway Centre for Electrochemical Energy and Sustainable Technology

 

Overview

Sunway Centre for Electrochemical Energy and Sustainable Technology (SCEEST) at Sunway University is leading in leveraging the extraordinary properties of graphene and other two-dimensional nanomaterials to drive innovation in a range of cutting-edge applications. With a focus on sustainability, SCEEST is exploring the potential of these materials in fields ranging from energy storage, harvesting, and conversion to biomedical engineering.

Our researchers are investigating and exploiting the unique characteristics of 2D materials, including graphene, MXene, transition metal dichalcogenides, and other hybrid nanomaterials, through a combination of synthesis, characterisation, and device fabrication. Their work has already yielded exciting advancements in heat transfer fluids, sensors, and energy storage.

At SCEEST, we are committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious practices. Our research team is actively seeking ways to harness the potential of 2D materials to address global challenges such as climate change and planetary health.

We collaborate with other research teams nationally and internationally, ensuring our discoveries and innovations are widely shared with the scientific community. Our findings are published in high-impact scientific journals, furthering the reach of our research and ensuring its impact is felt far beyond our institution.

Join us at the forefront of materials science research and discover the endless possibilities that graphene and 2D materials offer in shaping the sustainable future of technology.
