Gang Li photo

Dr Gang (Kevin) Li

Dr Li’s major contribution to chemical engineering is his innovation in advancing gas separation technologies that has made a considerable impact in the research community and the gas industry.

Dr Li is the main inventor of three international patents (PCT). His invention of a new family of adsorbents named Ionic Liquidic Zeolites for the recovery of low grade methane showing the world highest methane selectivity won two Western Australia Innovator of the Year awards in 2015. He also invented a new pressure swing adsorption process with potential for perfect gas separations, and a molecular encapsulation process that for the first time enabled gas storage without sustained pressure.

Dr Li is an awardee of the $1 million Global Innovation Linkage Grant from AusIndustry that enabled a spin-out company to commercialize his inventions. Industrial scale production of the methane recovery adsorbent Ionic Liquidic Zeolites has been realized through collaboration with Australia local SME and overseas partners, making Australia a leading position in research innovation and technology transfer in unconventional gas processing.

Dr Li discovered and subsequently developed the “molecular trapdoor effect”, published in JACS, Nature Communications and other top journals, and his research has received a significant attention.
