New research from Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Assistant Professor David Flaherty and graduate student Neil Wilson paves the way to design improved catalysts to produce hydrogen peroxide to use in place of harmful chlorine, regardless of the scale of the production facility.
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering students join with other majors to design water systems for rural communities in Honduras.
Seven University of Illinois researchers, including retired Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Professor Richard Masel, have been named to the Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researchers list for 2015.
Congratulations to University of Illinois undergraduate students who were honored at the annual conference of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
John A. Georges, a 1951 Illinois Chemical Engineering graduate and former International Paper CEO, was inducted into the University of Illinois College of Engineering Hall of Fame earlier this fall. We sat down with Georges during his visit and asked about his time at Illinois, his path to success, and advice for students.
Meet Elizabeth Horstman, a Ph.D. candidate in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. In a new video, Elizabeth talks about why she chose the University of Illinois, the strong emphasis on mentorship, the "supportive and collaborative atmosphere" and earning a SURGE, or Support for Under-Represented Groups in Engineering, Fellowship.
Borrowing from several statistical science models, an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has developed a novel computational approach for massively accelerating the search for a hepatitis C vaccine.
Six researchers from the University of Illinois, include Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Professor Hong Yang, have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
In his latest fun and educational video, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Professor Bill Hammack, also known as the Engineer Guy, reveals the engineering design of a NERF blaster, including how it shoots only one dart at a time using a novel air restriction mechanism.
