The two institutions to collaborate on projects involved with energy storage, high-temperature fuel cells, geothermal energy systems, nuclear fuel cycle and reactor engineering, environmental science, and next-generation mining science and engineering.
Pylypenko was honored “for outstanding contributions to surface and interface analysis of energy materials and impactful commitment to education and outreach,” according to her award citation.
C. Michael McGuirk, assistant professor of chemistry, will conduct research on atomic-level studies of flexible sponge-like structures used in separations
Chemistry's Svitlana Pylypenko is looking for answers to questions of cost, durability and performance at the microscopic — and even nano — scale.
PFAS@Mines will focus on the development of treatment strategies for most challenging PFAS sites, improved methods to characterize human exposure, and improved tools for assessing sites that have been impacted by PFAS.
The Office of Academic Affairs at Colorado School of Mines is proud to announce the winners of the 2022-2023 Faculty Awards for excellence in teaching, research and mentorship. The annual awards
“It proved to be a seven-year journey to isolate the first molecule containing californium(2+), but we were rewarded with chemical and physical properties that had not been anticipated,” Thomas Albrecht-Schönzart said.
Jesse Hudspeth, a PhD student in chemistry, is spending a year in Austria studying proteins in certain mushrooms that synthesize psilocybin, which can produce psychedelic effects.
“The buzzword is rational drug design," said Christine Morrison, assistant professor of chemistry. "We’re being very deliberate about the protein we’re targeting and the inhibitors we’re building, rather than just throwing spaghetti at the wall.”
Jenifer C. Shafer, professor of chemistry at Colorado School of Mines, has been named a fellow of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
