Centennial Lecture Series – “American Research Universities: The Alchemy of Quality” by Robert A. Brown

Centennial Lecture Series

Host: Tom Truskett

ABSTRACT:

American Research universities are unique institutions where faculty members balance undergraduate education with an emphasis on research and scholarship and the supervision of doctoral research students.  The case is made that, evolving from the end of World War II, these institutions are now an enormous public asset at … Read the rest »

Centennial Lecture Series – “Gas Separations with Ionic Liquids” by Joan Brennecke

Centennial Lecture Series

Host: Keith Johnston

ABSTRACT:

Ionic liquids (ILs) present intriguing possibilities for gas separations.  Even by
physical absorption,ILs show good selectivity for a variety of industrially important gas separations; e.g., CO2/N2, CO2/CH4, olefin/paraffin, CO2/H2, H2S/H2.  Since ILs are virtually … Read the rest »

Centennial Lecture Series – “Sequence: Polypeptoids as a platform for understanding the role of sequence on controlling polymer properties” by Rachel Segalman

Centennial Lecture Series

Host: Venkat Ganesan

ABSTRACT:

Chain shape and monomer sequence are two handles that affect polymer properties and self-assembly; however, it is difficult to control these handles in conventional synthetic polymers without also changing other factors, such as chemistry. Polypeptoids, a class of sequence-specific bioinspired polymer, have a chain shape that can be tuned by … Read the rest »
