Dani Kohen, Associate Professor of Chemistry, has been awarded a PetroleumDaniela Kohen Research Fund grant of $65,000 for her project “Atomistic Simulations of Small Molecules’ Behavior within A1 Substituted Zeolites.” Professor Kohen’s research aims to understand and characterize at the molecular level how carbon dioxide and other small gas molecules behave in pores of molecular sieves. The work, which involves undergraduate researchers, is centered on materials that might be used to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and on materials useful to other industrial processes.
