Micromeritics Announces Its Sixth Instrumentation Grant Award Winner

Micromeritics Announces Its Sixth Instrumentation Grant Award Winner - 4/21/2008

After careful consideration by a special Grant Selection Committee appointed by the president of the company, Micromeritics’ grant award winner for the first quarter of 2008 has been selected. An AutoChem II 2920 Catalyst Characterization System has been awarded to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Tufts University, Medford, MA.

According to Prof. Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos, Principal Investigator and Director of the Tufts NanoCatalysis and Energy Laboratory, “The focus of our research group is on clean energy technologies, in particular fuel processing, and catalytic hydrogen generation, that involves fundamental studies of catalysts, including catalyst preparation, characterization, and reaction kinetics studies, as well as investigation of different sorption reactions for clean up of product or exhaust gas streams. Studies of surface processes and materials characterization are of paramount importance to our research effort.”

Tufts University, located on three Massachusetts campuses in Boston, Medford/Somerville, and Grafton, and in Talloires, France, is recognized among the premier research universities in the United States. Tufts enjoys a global reputation for academic excellence and for the preparation of students as leaders in a wide range of professions. A growing number of innovative teaching and research initiatives span all Tufts campuses, and collaboration among the faculty and students in the undergraduate, graduate and professional programs across the University's schools is widely encouraged.
