Chemistry is People

With a number of minority faculty members, and one of the highest percentages of tenured women among all US universities, CCB views diversity as a source of strength.  And the department’s strength in the areas of energy, structural biology, and nanotechnology is widely recognized.  In the past year alone, for example, the department has won a number of major national awards, including the C3E Award in Clean Energy, the first American Chemical Society Catalysis Award, and National Science Foundation’s Special Creativity Awards.

"Recently, we've been working on catalysts that can lead to more environmentally-friendly diesel fuel from natural gas, coal, or plant by-products. The organometallic molecules we study can potentially catalyze a huge range of new routes to everything from fuels to pharmaceuticals, plastics or fertilizers; with access to new and improved facilities, there's no limit to where these efforts may lead."
