CHME research productivity strong over last eight years

NMSU Chemical & Materials Engineering Faculty have demonstrated strong research productivity over the past eight years when compared against peer programs, as shown in this updated study performed by CHME undergraduate Zoe Elliott.  Ms. Elliot built on the original study completed by Kelsey Lee (BSCHE 2016). Highlights from this study follow, with the full report…

Denitrogenation of algal biocrude obtained from hydrothermal liquefaction process

Description: This project aims to develop an innovative separation technique for denitrogenation of biocrude obtained from hydrothermal liquefaction of algae. Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) involves conversion of whole algae (without drying) performed in hot, compressed water at ~350 oC and 20 MPa (3000 psi) pressure. Algal biocrude obtained from HTL has an energy content of 80-93%…

UMN Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC)

Hey Dr. Rockstraw, I hope you’re doing well. Following are links for a few REU opportunities at the University of Minnesota worth sharing. NMSU has had pretty good success rate with the MRSEC program in the past few years and the experience opens up a lot of doors. I’d highly recommend it or any of…

Electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reaction and hydrogen evolution reaction

Description: The process of hydrogen fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells, metal-air batteries and electrolyzers impose much less treat to the environment, but commercialization of such energy devices is limited because of the pricy noble metal catalysts. The rate-limiting reaction is the oxygen evolution reaction catalyzed by IrO2/RuO2. The catalysts are either unstable or display…

Gibbs Ensemble Computer Simulations of Vapor Liquid Equilibrium of Hydrazine

Description: Hydrazine is a highly reactive liquid base. It is mainly used as a rocket propellant; other uses include but are not limited to, the production of spandex fibers, agricultural chemicals, nickel-plating, nuclear fuel reprocessing, production of plastics and in the removal of halogens from wastewater. Molecular modeling of hydrazine can be a safe and…
