In pursuit of better lithium-ion batteries
By Eric Stann | MU News Bureau From personal electronics to electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries are used in many technologies today.…
Building polymers one molecule at a time
A Mizzou Engineering researcher has demonstrated a new method of controlling material behavior by building polymers molecule-by-molecule. Polymers are made of long, repeating chains of single molecules known as monomers. In this study, Matthias Young — an assistant professor of biomedical, biological and chemical engineering — focused on monomers that exhibit high electrochemical capabilities, making…
Mizzou Engineers develop new method to design semiconductors
Mizzou Engineers have come up with a novel new technique to design semiconductors, the chips that make your phones, laptops and other devices not only smart, but also compact. Matthias…
Researcher to study ways to prevent gum formation in fuel
A Mizzou Engineer will study how nitrogen-rich molecules in fuel interact with the vessel fuel is stored in to see if surface chemistry causes gum formation.
New method could use less energy to turn seawater into drinking water
A Mizzou Engineer is taking another look at a desalination system that uses electricity to pull ions out of water.
Designing new ways to understand material
A Mizzou Engineer has designed two techniques for understanding the behavior of materials. The discoveries could be a game-changer for material scientists working to improve batteries and other technologies.
Young Honored with Top Investigator Award
Matthias Young, assistant professor in biomedical, biological and chemical engineering, received the prestigious 2020 Paul H. Holloway Young Investigator Award from the American Vacuum Society (AVS) Thin Film Division.
