Five PKM-RE Teams from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember Passed PKM Funding in 2024

Five Program Kreativitas Mahasiswa (PKM) Teams from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Jember University will receive funding in 2024. The teams from the Department of Chemistry and Biology took part in the PKM Research and Exacts (PKM-RE) field. The five are entitled to receive funding of between 7-9 juta rupiah and must produce output in the form of progress reports, final reports, scientific articles, and social media accounts. “They will prepare progress reports up to the final report for later assessment and announcement of the 2024 PKM Award winners next August,” said Dr. M. Reza, a lecturer in the Chemistry Department who is also one of the supervisors of the PKM FMIPA UNEJ team.

It is hoped that the efforts of the PKM FMIPA UNEJ team will produce the best results so that they can qualify for the 37th Pekan Ilmiah Mahasiswa Nasional (PIMNAS), which will be held on October 16-22, 2024, at Airlangga University, Surabaya. This hope is very big because PKM supports the achievement of Main Performance Indicators (IK) for higher education institutions, and for students, it can be converted into credits and/or SKPI recognition. This conversion has been regulated, and universities have the freedom to determine the number of credit conversions and courses according to the PKM field being followed. Continue reading

PKM-RE Team, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember Participates in the 36th PIMNAS 2023 at Padjadjaran University

The Program Kreativitas Mahasiswa Riset Eksakta Team (PKM-RE) Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember, took part in the 36th Pekan Ilmiah Mahasiswa Nasional (PIMNAS) at Padjadjaran University from November 26 to December 1, 2023. The PKM-RE team consisted of Moh. Nazib Abdulloh Yaqin as team leader, with members Qurrota A’yun, Willda Dian Alfiela, Inayatul Ilmiyah, and Helmy Adam Zakaria. Carrying the theme of Pemanfaatan Limbah Ampas Kopi sebagai Material Pendukung TiO2 untuk Aplikasi Reduksi Logam Berat Cr(VI), the PKM-RE FMIPA team competes with 525 PKM groups from 107 universities throughout Indonesia. The PKM teams that passed PIMNAS were the result of selection from 5102 PKM teams that passed funding in 2023.

Dr. Sutisna, S.Pd., M.Si. lecturer at Department of Physics, FMIPA UNEJ, as the supervisor, said that the PKM-RE FMIPA team had prepared themselves, including strengthening the presentation material. “PIMNAS will be divided into 25 classes with several different fields, and this year poster judging will be carried out first, followed by presentation judging,” he said. It’s just that in 2023, the PKM-RE FMIPA team has not succeeded in winning a medal. Sutisna also added that for the implementation of the PKM-RE research, funds from Belmawa amounted to 7.6 million, with matching funds from the University of Jember amounting to 2 million.

Innovative, FMIPA UNEJ PKM-RE Team Overcomes Shrimp Pond Waste Using Shrimp Shell Biofocculant

The PKM-Riset Eksakta Team, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember, headed by Rikma Dwi Mukharomah from the Chemistry Department, converted shrimp shells into chitosan, which was applied as a bioflocculant for treating waste water in shrimp ponds. This research team consists of Masrurotul Alfiah, Imelda Dwi Puspita, and Ka’aziyah Aulia Nada from the Chemistry Department and Indah Febrian from the Biology Department. Dr. Bambang Piluharto, S.Si., M.Si., from Department of Chemistry, FMIPA, was appointed as supervisor of the PKM-Exact Research Team, which won funding for the 8 Bidang Program Kreativitas Mahasiswa (PKM) in 2023.

“This research is expected to be an alternative to processing waste water from shrimp ponds,” said Rikma Dwi Mukharomah. The research was carried out for 4 months, starting June 16, 2023, at the Physical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Laboratory, Department of Chemistry, FMIPA, University of Jember. Furthermore, Rikma explained that chitosan-based bioflocculant is synthesized from shrimp shells through several stages, including deproteination, demineralization, and deacetylation. “The result obtained after the deproteination and demineralization processes is chitin, while from the chitin deacetylation process, chitosan is obtained,” she explained.
