Chemical engineering Wilhelm lecture, April 11
Posted April 6, 2001; 07:27 p.m.
Charles Zukoski, the William H. and Janet L. Lycan Professor and chemical engineering chair at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will continue the Richard H. Wilhelm Lectureship in Chemical Engineering in Bowen Hall Auditorium of the Princeton Materials Institute at 4 p.m. on April 11.
Zukoski will address "Protein Crystallization: Depletion Interactions and Nucleation Kinetics." On Monday, April 9, he discussed "Protein Crystallization as Nanoparticle Self-Assembly."
Zukoski's research focuses on understanding the relationship between surface physical chemistry and the material properties of colloidal suspensions. Such systems have widespread applications, including protein crystallization, paints, cements, ceramics, and drilling muds.
The lecture is co-sponsored by The Graduate School in celebration of its centennial .
