Micromeritics Awards Grant to City College of New York Department of Chemistry

Micromeritics recently announced that its Grant Selection Committee has selected the Department of Chemistry at The City College of New York (CCNY), New York, NY, as the recipient of its fourth quarter 2010 grant. An ASAP® 2050 Xtended pressure sorption analyzer has been awarded to the department.

“Our research focuses on environmental applications of adsorption,” said Teresa Bandosz, Ph.D., principal investigator, City College of New York. “It involves development of new materials working as effective media toward the adsorption/reactive adsorption of toxic gases, vapors and liquids. The ASAP 2050 will enable us to obtain full texture characterization (surface area, volumes of pores, pore size distribution) and thermodynamic (heat of adsorption) word missing here?. The ability to study small micropores using hydrogen as a probe molecule is a very valuable option. Moreover, the extended range of pressure will allow us more versatility in the evaluation of our materials, which we obtain, modify and test in our laboratory.”

“This program is designed to promote and advance the acquisition and use of particle characterization instrumentation in non-profit universities and institutions where other means of funding are not generally available,” said Preston Hendrix, president of Micromeritics. “We are very proud and excited to present this award in an ongoing grant program to support important research.”

Micromeritics’ Instrument Grant Program is intended to provide particle characterization instruments to non-profit universities and research organizations for the purpose of fostering and supporting meritorious research projects. A maximum of one instrument/integrated system will be awarded per calendar quarter. The next grant decision will be made prior to March 31; the next application deadline is also March 31 for a June 30 grant decision.
