ChE Seminar – “Single Polymer Dynamics of Architecturally Complex Materials: Entangled Solutions, Combs, and Bottlebrush Polymers” by Dr. Charles Schroeder (University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign)

Host: by Dr. Thomas Truskett


In this talk, I will discuss recent work from my group that effectively extends the field of single polymer dynamics to new materials, including polymers with complex topologies including rings, combs, and bottlebrush polymers. In the first part of the talk, polymer dynamics in semi-dilute unentangled and entangled DNA … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “Eco-efficient downstream processing of biofuels by process intensification” by Dr. Tony Kiss (University of Manchester, UK)

Host: Dr. Michael Baldea; Endowed Lectureship


The need for greater sustainability for the production of fuels and chemicals has spurred significant research to substitute fossil fuel sources by renewable sources in industry. However, most research in biorefineries has focused on the conversion (e.g. thermo-chemical, biological, chemical) or pre-treatment parts, whereas the real cost of … Read the rest »
