Micromeritics recently announced its Instrument Grant Committee has awarded a 3Flex surface characterization analyzer to the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University. 

“Our main research areas are the development of novel and efficient nanostructured and nanoporous materials potentially capable of several important applications, including adsorption-based separation of small gases and hydrocarbons, water splitting and carbon dioxide reduction,” said Jing Li, principal investigator and professor. “The 3Flex will be essential for the characterizations of various materials and reactions, for understanding the adsorption mechanism, activity of catalysts, as well as their relationship with structures and particle morphology.”

“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.”
