Soka University Doctoral Program Student Receives the Most Outstanding Poster Award at the 7th International Conference for Young Chemists

September 27, 2019

From August 14 to the 16, an international conference centered on graduate school students of the Asia Pacific Region titled, "7th International Conference for Young Chemists (ICYC)," took place in the Province of Penang of Malaysia. Soka University student Younghee Lee from South Korea of the Graduate School of Engineering, Environmental Engineering for Symbiosis (doctoral program) received the Most Outstanding Poster Award.

ICYC is a biannual conference sponsored by graduate school students of the Universiti Sains Malaysia and aims to gather graduate students from inside and outside of the country to create a network in the field of chemistry.

The award recipient Younghee Lee shared, "I was stimulated by the vigor of young researchers who gathered from around the world. We were able to joyfully discuss our research which motivated me to further make efforts in my research. As a result of my efforts to make the contents of my research easily understood, I was able to receive the Poster Award for the first time in my life and I am overjoyed. My research is on the separation and collection of carbon dioxide, which is considered the main cause of global warming. In concrete terms, I am engaged in research to elevate the adsorption performance of carbon dioxide by preparing absorbents, using porous material with a controlled pore structure. I will make further research results with the goal to become a researcher who can make significant contributions to the issues of the global environment."
