After careful consideration by a special Grant Selection Committee appointed by the president of the company, Micromeritics’ grant award winner for the fourth quarter of 2007 has been selected. A Pulse ChemiSorb 2705 Catalyst Characterization System has been awarded to the Department of Chemistry and Geology at Columbus State University, Columbus, Georgia.

According to Dr. Anil Banerjee, Principal Investigator, “The Pulse ChemiSorb 2705 system will be used for chemisorption and physisorption studies on a number of projects. We are setting up a catalytic research group that will conduct research in the areas of hydrogen storage and catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide using platinum, non platinum group metals, oxides, and alloys. Our plan also includes the training of a selected number of high school chemistry teachers (working in our federal Teacher Quality project) and very talented high school students.”
