A Plan for the Future One of the most highly ranked departments within the University, we are still making bold plans for the future that include new faculty hires to support the Notre Dame mission and build an even stronger more impactful program for our students and our local and global communities.
A Plan for the Future
Controlling Chemical Reactions Catalysts are the knobs that give engineers the ability to control chemical reactions, specifically the reations that transform raw materials into useful products. Advances in computer power, theory, and algorithms allow chemical engineers to apply quantum mechanical models to catalysts for more robust, durable, and cost effective solutions.

Fine Tuning Biomass to Power Vehicles and More Having a sustainable source of fuel is essential to industry, transportation, and more. It also impacts national security. Led by Assistant Professor Jason Hicks, researchers at Notre Dame are concentrating on non-food related biomass to fine tune this renewable energy resource.

New Perspectives Produce Novel Results Researchers in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are employing a unique tool — the development of molecular cavities — to create gas separation membranes capable of discriminating between gas molecules by their size. In short, they can tune the cavities to specific gas molecules, providing both high permeability and high selectivity.

A paper written by William A. Phillip, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular at Notre Dame, and Menachem Elimelech, the Roberto Goizueta Professor of Environmental and Chemical Engineering and Director of the Environmental Engineering Program at Yale University, not only addresses possible solutions to the global water shortage, the document does it well enough to have passed the 1,000 citation mark, a milestone in academic circles.
