Debenedetti to Deliver McCabe Lecture at NC State

On February 3, Pablo Debenedetti, Class of 1950 Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Dean for Research, will deliver the Warren L. McCabe Lecture in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University.  The lectureship was created in 1983 to honor Professor Warren L. McCabe of NC State, and previously of the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, who is familiar to generations of chemical engineering students worldwide through his McGraw-Hill textbooks, “Elements of Chemical Engineering” (Badger & McCabe) and “Unit Operations of Chemical Engineering” (McCabe, Smith, & Harriott), and through the McCabe-Thiele graphical method for determining the number of equilibrium stages required in a binary distillation.  Debenedetti’s lecture will be entitled “Thermodynamic and Kinetic Models of the Emergence of Biological Homochirality”.
