ChE Professor Bryan Boudouris part of Purdue research team developing novel sensors to detect indoor air pollutants

The World Health Organization reports that more than 2.5 million people each year die from health complications caused by indoor air pollution. Improving indoor air quality requires better monitoring technology, and a team of Purdue researchers including Dr. Bryan Boudouris, the Robert and Sally Weist Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering, is developing novel resonant sensors that can detect volatile organic compounds polluting indoor environments at dangerous levels. The team's research transitions these sensors from laboratory environments to field-viable products with high reliability and cost-efficiency.

Professor Jeffrey Greeley's research group aims to cut costs of fuel cells in electric vehicles; study published in Science

Purdue Chemical Engineering Professor Jeffrey Greeley and his research group are aiming to reduce the costs of electric vehicle fuel cells by cutting down on the amount of platinum in the fuel cell electrodes. Their new method evaluates how much metal would be required for fuel cell electrodes. The technique uses the forces on a metal's surface to identify the ideal electrode thickness. Their study, published in the February 22 issue of the journal Science, is a collaborative effort between Johns Hopkins University, Purdue University, and the University of California at Irvine.
