Carl Lund Lab (Jacob Heltzel research project)

Materials Engineering at UB focuses on the study and fabrication of both soft and hard materials and apply transport phenomena, thermodynamics, and chemical kinetics/reaction engineering, allowing us to take practical and quantitative approaches to materials research not common in chemistry or materials science departments. We focus on nano-technology, advanced polymers, catalysis, colloids, and self-assembly and crystallization phenomena and apply it to fuel production, fabrication of catalysts, drug delivery, oil dispersants (example: 2010 B.P. oil spill), semiconductors, and electronic display advancements.
