MAKING BETTER MATERIAL FOR FUEL CELLS: UD researchers make material to make fuel cells more durable, less expensive

Sep. 4, 2017--Take a ride on the University of Delaware’s Fuel Cell bus, and you see that fuel cells can power vehicles in an eco-friendly way. In just the last two years, Toyota, Hyundai and Honda have released vehicles that run on fuel cells, and carmakers such as GM, BMW and VW are working on prototypes. If their power sources lasted longer and cost less, fuel cell vehicles could go mainstream faster. Now, a team of engineers at UD has developed a technology that could make fuel cells cheaper and more durable.

THREE NEW ENGINEERING CHAIRS: CBE, CEE and ME departments have new leadership

"These faculty members are already trailblazers in their fields, and I anticipate that they will be outstanding departmental leaders," said Babatunde Ogunnaike, dean of the College of Engineering.

RESEARCHERS ATTEND NATAS CONFERENCE AT UD: Thermal analysis conference includes honor for late UD professor

Aug. 16, 2017--Researchers from 10 different countries gathered at the University of Delaware Aug. 7-11 for the 2017 44th annual North American Thermal Analysis Society (NATAS) conference. NATAS promotes the science and practice of thermal analysis, the study of materials as they change temperature. At the conference held in Clayton Hall, a group of 174 researchers participated in dozens of sessions on topics such as thermal hazards, rheology and viscoelasticity and energetic materials.


Aug. 2, 2017--The University of Delaware’s K. Eric Wommack, deputy dean in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, will lead a research team from four universities that has received a $6 million grant to probe how viruses impact microbes critical to our lives, from producing oxygen to growing food. Also, UD’s Kelvin Lee, Gore Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is a co-investigator on a $6.1 million research project, led by Clemson University, aimed at lowering drug manufacturing costs.

MILESTONE ANNIVERSARY: Chemical engineering’s Stan Sandler reaches 50-year mark as UD faculty member

July 10, 2017--Stan Sandler usually takes the steps to get to his second-floor office in the University of Delaware’s Colburn Lab. But today he’s taking the elevator because he’s hauling two black bags filled with heavy books — books that will be added to a growing pile destined to be shipped to developing countries including Nigeria and Ethiopia. It’s easy to accumulate a lot of books over the course of an academic career, especially one that spans half a century, and, even with 150 or 200 books already boxed up, the shelves in Sandler’s office are far from empty.
