CEAS academic and students win IChemE Junior Moulton Medal
Dr Carmine D'Agostino, PhD student Luke Forster and former MSc student Le Yu, of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science (CEAS), have been awarded the IChemE Junior Moulton Medal.
The prestigious accolade is given to the most meritorious paper published by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) in 2020.
Entitled 'Tailoring morphology of hierarchical catalysts for tuning pore diffusion behaviour: a rational guideline exploiting bench-top pulsed-field gradient (PFG) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)', the paper by Forster et al was unanimously awarded the medal after being published in Molecular Systems Design and Engineering.
The judging committee commented that the paper "is a relevant and timely paper at the heart of chemical engineering... The committee felt that the work was very thorough and held potential for impact in other contexts".
Head of Department for CEAS Profesor Lev Sarkisov commended Dr D'Agostino and his group for this achievement, saying: "This is an excellent example of a fruitful MSc project and effective supervision of PhD and MSc students."
Dr D'Agostino and his students have been offered the opportunity to accept the award at a virtual presentation.
Congratulations to the team!
