Dr. Julie Liu leads research team developing non-toxic underwater adhesive

Dr. Julie Liu, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering, is leading a team of researchers developing a non-toxic glue modeled after adhesive proteins produced by mussels and other creatures. The glue has been found to out-perform commercially available products, pointing toward potential surgical glues to replace sutures and staples. The team's findings were recently published in Biomaterials.

Chemical Engineering researchers part of collaboration bringing new concepts for potassium-ion batteries

Davidson School of Chemical Engineering researchers are part of a collaborative effort to develop rechargeable batteries based on potassium, a potential alternative to lithium that is less expensive and far more plentiful. Graduate student Ryan A. Adams led much of the research. His research is co-directed by Dr. Vilas Pol, associate professor of Chemical Engineering and Dr. Arvind Varma, R. Games Slayter Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering.
