ChE Seminar – “Coupling Molecular Design to Structure and Activity of Sequence-Defined Macromolecules” by Dr. Chris Alabi (Cornell University)

March 27 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Host: Dr. Benjamin Keith Keitz ABSTRACT Control over primary sequence and structure is critical to the development of new functional materials such as catalysts, synthetic affinity ligands and therapeutics, sequence responsive scaffolds, programmable biomaterials and much more. Motivated by these opportunities and the need for sequence-control and structural diversity in polymer research, we present a versatile methodology for the assembly of a new class of sequence-defined macromolecules called oligoTEAs. With sequence-control in hand, we are currently working to establish sensitive…

ChE Seminar – “The Development of the Membrane Separation Industry” by Dr. Richard Baker (Membrane Technology and Research, Inc.)

April 17 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Host: Dr. Benny Freeman; Endowed Lectureship ABSTRACT It is now fifty years since the first commercial reverse osmosis plants were installed.  Prior to that membranes had only been used in a few laboratory applications. The total membrane market was then about 20 million dollars per year in today’s dollars. The current membrane industry is in the range of 10 billion dollars per year, and still growing. Membranes are now used to separate drinking water from the sea, nitrogen from air, contaminants…
