Professor Morgan Helps Determine Biology, Not Just Physics, Controls Release of Scent Compounds from Plants
August 10, 2015
Research completed by a team of Purdue researchers, including Professor John Morgan and ChE graduate student Rohit Jaini, suggests active biological mechanisms transport scent and taste compounds known as volatiles from plant cells to the atmosphere, a finding that could overturn the textbook model of volatile emission as a process that occurs solely by diffusion.

Twin discoveries, 'eerie' effect may lead to manufacturing advances
July 27, 2015
The discovery of a previously unknown type of metal deformation – sinuous flow - and a method to suppress it could lead to more efficient machining and other manufacturing advances by reducing the force and energy required to process metals.
