CHE 423: Chemical Engineering Senior Design

A collection of resources for use in CHE Senior Design projects.

You Can't Solve the Problem If You Don't Know What It Is

You have to know the details of the issue you're trying to fix before you can figure out how to fix it. The resources collected here will help you and your group figure out the best places to look for information on your topic.

Contact me any time for a group or individual appointment so we can really go over your topic and where to find research about it.

Multi-walled carbon nanotubes, SEM (Image Quest)Multi-walled carbon nanotubes, SEM

Multi-wall carbon nanotubes, coloured scanning electron microscope (SEM) image. The image shows bundles of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) produced using ethylene gas and an iron catalyst at high temperature. A carbon nanotube is a one atom thick sheet of graphite, called graphene, rolled into a cylinder with diameter of the order of a nanometre. In MWNTs nanotubes are arranged concentrically. Carbon nanotubes have interesting properties that make them useful in a wide variety of applications including electronics, materials science, optics and even medicine. They exhibit extraordinary strength, and unique electrical and heat conductive properties. Photographed at the Arkema Laboratory Pilot in Lacq, France, where MWNTs are produced in bulk[.]
