Rezaei earns ACS award for publication excellence

Dr. Fateme Rezaei, assistant professor of chemical engineering, will receive the 2018 Energy & Fuels Joint Award for Excellence in Publication at the American Chemical Society (ACS) national meeting in Boston in August. The Energy & Fuels journal publishes research in the intersection area of chemistry and chemical engineering and the application of non-nuclear energy and fuels.

Researchers work on carbon dioxide capture systems

A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher and her team are developing technology that could help keep astronauts safe from carbon dioxide buildup during flight and aboard the International Space Station. Dr. Fateme Rezaei, assistant professor of chemical and biochemical engineering at Missouri S&T, and the team have developed “robust structures” in mechanically strong configurations that are comparable to powders in adsorbing CO2. Their findings were reported in the American Chemical Society’s Applied Materials & Interfaces publications in September 2016 and February 2017.

Al-Dahhan Named Curators' Distinguished Professor at Missouri S&T

Dr. Muthanna Al-Dahhan, chair and professor of chemical and biochemical engineering and a professor of nuclear engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, has been named Curators’ Distinguished Professor of chemical and biochemical engineering and of nuclear engineering at Missouri S&T. Al-Dahhan will be officially recognized during Missouri S&T’s commencement ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 17.

Computer modeling helps researcher chase diseases

Researching ways to cure cancer and neurodegenerative diseases in the lab is painstaking, time-consuming and expensive. But a Missouri University of Science and Technology professor is using computer modeling to test drug therapies that one day could lead to cures for these conditions that kill millions each year. Dr. Dipak Barua, assistant professor of chemical and biochemical engineering at Missouri S&T, is the principal investigator on a project funded with a Department of Energy grant for $112,377 on “countering pathogen interfaces with human defenses.”
