Advancements in sustainable energy and chemicals production rely on the development of new materials that can function as catalysts, membranes, absorbents, electrodes, and electrolytes.

In the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, we develop new methods to synthesize, characterize, and for applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, electrochemical energy storage and conversion, environmental remediation, sensors, and more.

We offer state-of-the-art processing, characterization and computational facilities and a broad range of academic courses in complementary topics, including reaction engineering and catalysis, separations, nanomaterials, micro and nanotechnology, renewable energies, and theoretical catalysis, all of which provide our students the tools they need to design new materials and solve tomorrow’s challenges.
