  • Was the Secret Spice in Primal Gene Soup a Thickener?

    At the threshold to first life on Earth, the ancestors of gene strands replicated spontaneously, but for 50 years, lab experiments in water have not been able to imitate it. A little thickener kicks the process forward, Georgia Tech chemical engineering researchers have found.

  • The Lignin Group Forms, Launches Website

    Research groups from three Georgia Tech Schools have teamed up with the Renewable Bioproducts Institute (RBI) to form the Lignin Group. Through this research collaboration, experts from the Schools of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE), Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Industrial and Systems Engineering are seeking to develop cost-efficient, ecologically sustainable processes from lignin to defined chemical compounds. 

  • Carbon Molecular Sieve Membranes Could Cut Energy in Hydrocarbon Separations

    A research team from the Georgia Institute of Technology and ExxonMobil has demonstrated a new carbon-based molecular sieve membrane that could dramatically reduce the energy required to separate a class of hydrocarbon molecules known as alkyl aromatics. 

  • Professor Jones Wins Andreas Acrivos Award for Professional Progress

    Christopher W. Jones, the Love Family Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, has been selected by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) as the 2016 winner of the Andreas Acrivos Award for Professional Progress in Chemical Engineering.

  • Influential Research at ChBE: Professor David Sholl’s Work with MOFs

    Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering is known for the far-reaching impact of the research conducted by our faculty. In this Q&A feature, we spotlight research by Professor and School Chair David Sholl into metal-organic frameworks that has been widely cited in other studies in recent years.

  • Study: Surface Area of Floating Dust Important for Cloud Formation

    Cloud droplets are more likely to form around insoluble particles floating in the atmosphere (e.g. dust, volcanic ash) when the particle surface is more “wrinkly” (with many pores, kinks, nooks and crannies), according to a new study.
