ChBE faculty play key role in new Department of Energy-funded bioenergy research center

A new, multimillion dollar bioenergy research center at the University of Illinois that promises to be a catalyst for the development of sustainable, cost-effective biofuels and bioproducts will involve several faculty from Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. The Department of Energy announced earlier this summer it has awarded the University of Illinois $104 million for the […]

New insights from Schroeder group will guide solution-based processing for next-gen functional materials

New research from Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois offers new insight into the self-assembly of electrically-active biohybrid materials, which consist of natural peptides linked to synthetic conductive polymers. The results, published recently in ACS Central Science, promise to aid solution-based processing of next-generation optoelectronic materials such as flexible organic semiconductors. Thanks […]
