On October 28, 2020, Project Assistant Professor Daigo Terutsuki (Intelligent Cooperative Systems) won an incentive award of the 37th Sensor Symposium (Future Technologies from Kumamoto Online). This award is presented to a young researcher (35 years old or younger) who delivers an excellent oral presentation in the symposium. Dr. Terutsuki’s presentation that earned him the award was titled "Development of a high-speed volatile organic compound mixture dissolving method and a prototype odorant vacuum and dissolution system".
About the research:
This study proposes a method based on mist atomization that enables high-speed dissolution of sparsely water-soluble odorant molecules, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), in water. The approach allowed dissolving a sparsely soluble VOC mixture with various functional groups in water. Moreover, a prototype of a portable odorant vacuum and dissolution system has also been developed successfully in the study.
It is an honor to receive a wonderful award. I would like to continue to develop innovative odorant biosensor technologies.
