Chemical Engineering: Helping society meet its goals for sustainable energy, clean water and better health
Drawing on expertise in areas like catalysis, electrochemical systems, transport properties of biological systems and polymers for membranes and biomaterials, our faculty bridge the gaps between molecular-level interactions and real-world applications. Using advanced molecular engineering strategies, we are driving innovation in fields as varied and as important to society as solar energy and battery technologies, natural gas to chemical conversions, water purification, pollutant remediation, tissue engineering and pharmaceutical processing and drug delivery.
The National Science Foundation's five-year, $548,898 award will support the development of advanced polymer membranes for...
