  • Dr. Banerjee's Research Group Publishes New Paper

    Dr. Anil Banerjee, graduate student Jacqueline McGuire, and undergraduate Olivia Lawnick had their original research published in the chemistry journal Catalysts. Their paper titled Low-Temperature Activity and PdO-PdO x Transition in Methane Combustion by a PdO-PdO x /γ-Al 2 O 3 Catalyst reports significant advances in neutralizing harmful engine exhaust byproducts. The work was conducted in conjunction with Dr. Michael Bozack at Auburn University and could inform the design of future catalytic converters used on gas and diesel powered automobiles.
