Faculty: Valla, Julia A.
Department: Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
Excerpt: Dr. Valla’s research has focused on the nanoscale engineering of catalysts (mainly zeolites) for the production of advanced bio(fuels) and bio(chemicals). Our objectives are: a) Development of hierarchical pore structure zeolites (e.g ZSM-5, USY) with reduced diffusion limitations for easy access of heavy molecules and less coke formation; b) Development of multifunctional zeolites by encapsulation […]
