The Center for Plastics Innovation (CPI), led by Professors LaShanda Korley and Thomas H. Epps, III, will focus on chemically transforming plastic waste into fuels, lubricants and other valuable products in an energy-efficient manner. It is one of six new Energy Frontier Research Centers established across the U.S. and the second to be directed by the University of Delaware.
A new center at the University of Delaware will advance research to transform the way materials are made. The UD Center for Hybrid, Active, and Responsive Materials (UD CHARM) will drive fundamental materials science research with the potential to enable critical innovations in biomedicine, security, sensing and more.
In a time of crisis, the ability to respond quickly can be the difference between life or death. Quick turns are not typical when the need is for new medicines, vaccines or diagnostic tests, though. Such advances usually require years, not months.
A team of engineers has shown that surface diffusion in protein transport into ion-exchange beads depends on adsorption affinity — a measure of attraction between the two materials.
The University of Delaware Board of Trustees approved the promotions of 72 faculty members
The University of Delaware Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will add two new faculty members in 2021: Alexandra Bayles and Kevin Solomon.
