Nicholas Kotov elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Nicholas Kotov, Irving Langmuir Distinguished University Professor of Chemical Sciences and Engineering, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Only 13,500 members have been elected since 1780.
Bryan Goldsmith receives OpenEye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award in Computational Chemistry
Dow Corning Assistant Professor Bryan Goldsmith receives the OpenEye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award in Computational Chemistry. The American Chemical Society (ACS) grants the award biannually through their Computers in Chemistry (COMP) Division.
Interpretable machine learning in catalysis
Recent research from U-M ChE professors Suljo Linic and Bryan Goldsmith and their co-advised PhD student Jacques Esterhuizen explores recent advances in machine learning approaches for heterogeneous catalysis.
Nicholas Kotov honored by MRS with the David Turnbull Lectureship
U-M ChE’s Nicholas Kotov has been recognized by the Materials Research Society (MRS) with the David Turnbull Lectureship for foundational discoveries in interface-based engineering of self-organizing materials.
Improving the production of hydrogen through solar power
U-M ChE Assistant Professor Nirala Singh has received funding to help improve the efficiency of producing hydrogen fuel through solar power. The research is part of a sponsored agreement between SunHydrogen, Inc. and U-M.
War and Professorship
U-M College of Engineering honors Suljo Linic on his amazing journey to the Martin Lewis Perl Collegiate Professor of Chemical Engineering.
Solving the plastic shortage
New catalyst could stabilize supplies of one of the world’s most important plastics.
Sustainable biofuel: Design principles for bioengineered microbe catalysts
The US has been stuck on corn kernels for producing ethanol, rather than woody “cellulosic” material. Efficient microbes for converting cellulose to biofuel could change the game.
Harnessing light to drive chemical reactions
The mechanism transferring light energy from capturer to catalyst is explained, paving the way to design better reactions that use less energy and produce less waste.
