Scientific Seminar / Webinar - by Prof Michael Tsapatsis
Time & Location
About The Event
Prof Michael Tsapatsis from Johns Hopkins University will deliver a scientific seminar on "Molecular Sieve Films and 2 Dimensional Nanoporous Catalysts and Membranes on the 1st July 2019 at 10:30 am - 12:30 pm in Lecture Theatre E7, Engineering Building, Monash University.
Prof Tsapatsis research team works together with his collaborators in academia and national laboratories in the discovery of zeolite nanosheets (extremely thin silicate crystals with molecular-sized pores) and their use as thin film ultra-selective separation membranes (Science 334, 72-75 (2011) and Nature 543(7647), 690-694 (2017)) and catalysts (Science 336, 1684-1687 (2012)), and the development of a manufacturing method for thin film metal-organic-framework (MOF) membranes (Science 361, 1008-1011 (2018)). Research in his group is also strengthened by substantial industrial interactions and Tsapatsis is co-inventor in several patents and pending patent applications.
Prof Tsapatsis is the recipient of the Alpha Chi Sigma Award for Chemical Engineering Research from AIChE, the Breck Award from the International Zeolite Association, the Charles M.A. Stine Award from the Materials Engineering & Sciences Division of AIChE, a David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, and a North American Membrane Society Fellowship. He was elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2011) and member of the National Academy of Engineering (2015).
