Newly acquired equipment will catalyze discovery

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

It may read like an acronym soup, but a host of new instruments acquired at CEBC are sure to accelerate the rapid design of cat­alytic materials and processes.

Miller Associate Professor Franklin Tao adds surface science capabilities with his ambient-pressure X-ray pho­toelectron spectrometer (XPS) and high temperature scanning tunneling microscope (STM).

Other new instruments include a liquid chro­matography-tandem mass spectrometer (LC-MS/MS), useful in identifying unknown compounds in complex biomass feedstocks, a milling machine for in-house equipment fabrication, a gas chromatograph for analysis of vacuum resid, new nodes for advanced computing, and new fixed-bed and stirred reactors.
