Anna McLaughlin, Matthias Young and Matt Wopata all received the prestigious distinction for their academic achievements, leadership and service. The AASB began Mizzou ’39 in 2005 as a […]

Chemical engineering paper receives ‘Most Cited Author’ award

Story by: Jashin Lin In 2004, Galen Suppes, chemical engineering professor at the University of Missouri, and his team published a paper in Applied Catalysis A, a prominent chemistry journal. The paper’s title, “Transesterification of soybean oil with zeolite and metal catalysts”, might not be a phrase to set one’s imagination on fire, but the […]

Chemical engineering adds a student lounge

An MU College of Engineering renovation project that began with the razing of the high bay portion of Lafferre Hall in early in 2008 is nearing completion, with dedication slated for early November. The reconstruction, which will add upgraded classrooms, labs and student commons, is not the only new student-centric space being added within Mizzou […]

MU Researchers collaborate with company to take green technology on the road

MU Researchers collaborate with company to take green technology on the road

Ground corncobs, a plentiful agricultural by-product in Missouri and surrounding Corn Belt states, are the main ingredient in a new technology that may soon power natural-gas-powered vehicles on the country’s highways. The technology vital to making this a reality was developed by Peter Pfeifer, professor and chair of the MU Department of Physics, and Galen […]

Chemical engineering student presents prize-winning poster

It is no small accomplishment to win the Chancellor’s Award in the Physical Sciences and Engineering category at the 2009 Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievements Forum. This year judges reviewed the posters of 140 undergraduates and rated them on theoretical motivation, context within each student’s academic discipline, mastery of the relevant concepts and presentation quality.
