2018 Eastman Lectures in Catalysis: Interfacial Perimeter Sites – an Essential Component in Supported Au Catalysis

Lecture | September 17 | 4-6 p.m. | 775 Tan Hall


Harold H. Kung, Professor, Northwestern University

Department of Chemical Engineering


Interfacial perimeter sites, where the metal atom and its nearest atomic neighbor of support oxide are both accessible to reacting molecules simultaneously, have been found to be essential in supported Au catalysts. They have been reported for CO oxidation, water-gas shift, and selective oxidation reactions. By creating these sites using inverse catalysts, we have demonstrated that these sites......   More >

Bioengineering (BioE)


Super-hydrophobic surfaces have a hierarchical surface topography in the nanometer and µ-meter range and exhibit incomplete wetting when exposed to an aqueous solution, forming a fluctuating thin air layer (plastron) between the solid surface and the aqueous phase. This protects the surface for a limited time from the attachments of cells and bacteria, but with time contaminants adsorb from the......   More >


2018 Eastman Lectures in Catalysis: Extending the reach of catalytic influence on chemical reactions

Lecture | September 19 | 4-6 p.m. | 180 Tan Hall

Department of Chemical Engineering


Since the formulation of the concept of catalysis, extensive research has been conducted to understand the nature of reaction intermediates and their interactions with catalytic active sites - the atom(s) that form bonds with the reaction intermediates. In heterogeneous catalysis, manipulating an active site to change catalytic properties would involve changing the nature, location, and density......   More >

Title: Two-phase differential expression analysis for single cell RNA-seq

Abstract: Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) has brought the study of the transcriptome to higher resolution and makes it possible for scientists to provide answers with more clarity to the question of ‘differential expression’. Specifically, it allows us to observe binary (On/Off) as well as continuous (the amount......   More >
