The Intersection of Materials Development and Process Engineering
As a materials chemistry group grounded in chemical engineering, we often seek to apply our newly developed materials in practical processes for catalysis and separations applications. Through collaboration, we have worked on membrane separations, rapid temperature swing adsorption, direct air capture processes, membrane reactors and numerous other processes.
