This obligation becomes the main driver for each lecturer to make an innovation that is applied and beneficial to the community. No exception for Mrs. Dr. Paulina Taba, M.Phill who is a Lecturer of Physical Chemistry at Hasanuddin University Department of Chemistry who examines the modification of MCM-48 material as heavy metal adsorbent. From the results of his research shows the application of MCM-48 effective modifications to absorb heavy metals such as Zn2 + and Ni2 +. The results of his research as outlined in the article entitled “Amine-functionalized MCM-48 as Adsorbent of Zn2 + and Ni2 +” will be presented orally at 3rd International Conference on Science and Technology (ICST 2017) organized by Gajah Mada University on 11- July 12, 2017 in Yogyakarta.
