TEDxJHU will host “Instructions Not Included” from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 26 in Mudd Hall #26 on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. The event will feature seven speakers, including Youseph Yazdi, Executive Director of the Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design; Sonia Sarkar, a Hopkins alumna and the Baltimore Health Department’s Chief Policy and Engagement Officer; and Jennifer Dailey, a PhD student in the Whiting School of Engineering’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
The event includes an expo featuring student organizations and live music, and light catered refreshments will be served.
William Curtis “Curt” Conner, Jr., BS ’68, PhD ’73, will present at the Annual Billig-Croft Lecture.
Sorption Insight into the Application of Nanoporous Networks
Recent materials syntheses are yielding increasingly complex nanoporous solid networks for application as sorbents/separations and catalysts. Johns Hopkins was a pioneer in the use of physical adsorption to analyze porous solids (B.E.T. in 1932). How should our studies of the current nanoporous solid networks be extended to use sorption and its dynamics to understand the nature and implications of these networks? This presentation will discuss changes in sorption due to the networks and the interpretation of isotherms for N2 or Ar and ongoing related 15N2 NMR studies. This presentation will discuss the ongoing developments in physical sorption and related, in situ spectroscopic analyses.
