New materials developed in the labs of GTPN, CRĀSI, and SMI member Carson Meredith derived from crab shells and tree fibers has the potential to replace the flexible plastic packaging used to keep food fresh. GTPN, CRĀSI, and SMI members John Reynolds and Meisha Shofner were also part of the team.
The new material is described in the journal ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering. See the Article in Research Horizons.
COPE, GTPN, and CRĀSI Professors Seth Marder, Zhiqun Lin, Natalie Stingelin, and Carlos Silva from the Schools of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Materials Sciences and Engineering have received a Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) grant for equipment to establish a unique deposition and characterization station for a wide range of metal-halide perovskite materials that will allow control, with high precision, of thin-film deposition from solution in a controlled atmosphere, and enable characterization of the produced films during film formation as well as in device assemblies.
The 2018 National Graduate Research Polymer Conference (NGRPC18) recognized three STAMI Ph.D. students for outstanding presentations: Aditi Khirbat – top oral presentation; Brian Schmatz – runner-up oral presentation; Young Jun Yoon – top poster presentation. Congratulations Aditi, Brian, and Young Jun!
