Synthesis of multifunctional carbon nanoporous materials

Carbon is undoubtedly the most widely used material in all technologies due to its abundance and competitively outstanding properties. In this research, I will fabricate high-performance carbon-based electrode materials for electrochemical capacitance, electrochemical catalysis, and rechargeable batteries. I will rationally design and synthesis of MOF-derived carbon-based materials with controlled 2D/3D morphologies, doped heteroatoms (especially nitrogen), and combined functional nanosheets (e.g. MoS2), which are quite important and of great interest from the viewpoint of synthetic chemistry and practical electrochemical applications. 

​Freddy Marpaung was born in Sarulla, Indonesia, on March 15, 1983. He received B.Eng degree from Department of Materials Engineering, Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia in 2007. He is currently studying toward the MPhil degree in School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering, University of Wollongong, Australia. His current research interests include nanoporous carbon materials for diverse applications.
