Metal-Organic Framework Adsorbents and Processes for Separation of Biomass-Derived Furanic Molecules
10 Jun 2021 | Contributor(s):: Chiang, Ya Dong
Advisors: Sankar Nair, Ryan P. Lively, Andreas S. Bommarius, Meisha L. Shofner, Carsten SieversFuranics are important "platform chemical" precursors to polymers, pharmaceuticals, and fine chemicals, and can also be used as biofuels. In the production of 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), the catalytic...
Carbon Molecular Sieve Membranes for Xylene Isomer Separations
03 Jun 2021 | Contributor(s):: Ma, Yao
Advisors: Ryan P. Lively, William J. Koros, David S. Sholl, Krista S. Walton, Matthew FinnThe purification of benzene derivatives, particularly xylene isomers, is one of the most important organic mixture separations practiced in industry. The separation of xylene isomers is especially...

Mixed-Linker ZIF Materials and ZIF/polymer Hollow Fiber Membranes for Hydrocarbon Separations
17 Aug 2017 | Contributor(s):: Eum, Kiwon
Advisors: Sankar Nair, Christopher W. Jones, Peter J. Hesketh, Ryan P. Lively, Krista S. WaltonI demonstrated the effective pore size can be continuously and drastically tuned using mixed-linker ZIFs containing two types of linkers, allowing their use as a more general molecular separation...
Optimizing Catalyst Reactivity, Separation, and Recycle in Processes Involving the Palladium-Catalyzed Suzuki Coupling of Heteroaromatic Compounds
17 Aug 2017 | Contributor(s):: Senter, James C.
Advisors: Charles Liotta, Stefan France, Ryan Lively, Carsten Sievers, Jason FiskSuzuki coupling is a transition-metal catalyzed reaction of an aryl halide and a boronic acid that forms carbon-carbon bonds. Due to its versatility, the Suzuki reaction has emerged as an important reaction in...
Effect of Dimensional Variation, Manufacturing Process, and Material on Performance of Fluidic Oscillator
07 Jun 2017 | Contributor(s):: Jhaveri, Viyat Viral
Advisors: Jonathan Colton, Ari Glezer, Tequila HarrisThe use of active flow control (AFC) on civil transport aircraft flaps can delay stall at low aircraft speeds. This can lead to reducing the size of flaps or removing them from aircraft, which can reduce the part count, weight, and...
