My Preamble of My New Posting in 2013

Hi everyone, I am sorry I have leaved this blog for a year. So many stories I have got since I was doing my research at 9th course in university until I have been working in really different field which is AUDIT of bank.

For every detail of my steps will be shared in the next post. Cause it is just the preamble of my new posting in the last year of 2013.

Regards,

Happy Graduation Friends :)

When you take study somewhere on something, one of the biggest goal is graduation. You see, the time is getting near for my friends who are going to come the graduation ceremony day in Balairung. Actually my friends have graduated in July but the graduation ceremony is gonna be held on September 14, 2012. So, I love to say CONGRATULATION for you guys (for the men: Adi, Andi, Asa, Bali, Bimo, Budi, Daniel, Hadi, Hapis, Pandu, Qnoy, and Reza; and for the women: Asef, Chusnul, Decil, Desti, Dewi, Dian, Dila, Disa, Esti, Fai, Helen, Intan, Inna, Irna, Je, Lilid, Linyo, Maris, Michu, Mika, Mimit, Mita, Nia, One, Prily, Putri, Rasti, Resti, Rina, Sari, Tina, Vina Uni) after 4 years studying in Chemistry Department of Universitas Indonesia, after all the experiences you got, after all the dilemma you had, after all the problems came to you, and many more. What about me? Well, me myself personally is still in the process of “preparing” for my happy graduation. I just wish that I will graduate soon (February, 15 2013) amin. Oia, I would like you to remember of this: It is the first step guys. Your title is your modal to get something you always dream it most. Anyhow, I just wish that you will have really great days ahead after the graduation day. The nation awaits you to prove your competency :)

Graduation is only a concept.  In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on  until the last day of your life.  If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference.  ~Arie Pencovici

Ramadhan, I’m in Research

“Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought” Albert Szent-Gyorgyi (Hungarian Biochemist, 1937 Nobel Prize for Medicine, 1893-1986).

Like my friends have done, right now is my time to do my research at laboratory. You know, it has been so long since I wanted to do my research, but I couldn’t be. Hey Gied, Allah has given the right time for you to undertake your research, don’t be sad! Well, my research starts in Ramadhan which is the month to pray, perform good deeds, and of course fast. It is very challenging to me because I have to manage the time and organize it well. It might be pretty hard, but for sure all of my activities in Ramadhan must be done nicely and accurately (amin). Sure, I intend lillahi ta’ala that my research activity is also my worship in Ramadhan.

In this time, I want to share about one of my activities in Ramadhan which becomes the top of my priorities in that month: My Reseach! So, what do you think if you hear about Levulinic Acid (LA)? Any guesses? Bob’s your uncle! (slang words of “that is it!” that I have been knowing from Awais Ali, a friend from U.K., when I met up him in International Cultural Camp 2012). LA (see figure 1 *thesis guideline*), also known as 4-oxopentanoic acid or γ-ketovaleric acid, is a C5-chemical with a ketone and a carboxylic group. bezzzt…

Figure 1. Chemical Structure of LA and Its Derivatives
[Source: http://mainebioproducts.com/default.asp?topic=LVAC%5D

In August 2004, a US Department of Energy report identified LA as one of the “Top Value Added Chemicals From Biomass” on the basis of the feasibility of production, the general utility of the molecule, and its ability to build and transform the marketplace with new families of useful molecules. LA is a highly versatile ‘platform chemical’ that can be converted into a broad variety of value-added fuels and chemicals (http://mainebioproducts.com/default.asp?topic=LVAC).

In short, what I’m gonna do is to convert cellulose from biomass (I use cogon grass (Imperata cylindrica (L.) Beauv.) or in Bahasa we call it with alang-alang/ilalang) becomes LA. Furthermore, I also use Mn-ZSM-5 as solid acid catalyst to give very promising result for the conversion of cellulose to LA. I realize this topic is not easy to do, but I bet I can do it well. Hopefully, in the next part I will share about the result from this research, or at least just the interesting story of my research in Ramadhan hehehe :D Oia, I also want to say,

“Marhaban ya Ramadhan 1433 H, taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum. Happy fasting everyone, please forgive all of my fault that might be happen between us :)
