CCB researchers have developed an environmentally friendly mechanism to enable solid-state cooling with two-dimensional perovskites. Their findings are described in a new study in Nature Communications.
Suyang Xu, assistant professor of chemistry and chemical biology, is tying quantum mechanical “knots” in topological materials, which may be the key to unlocking the potential of quantum technologies to store and process vast arrays of information and bring game-changing advances in a variety of fields.
Mengtan (Mandy) Liu, a graduate student in Professor Jarad Mason's research group. has been awarded a 2022 Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship for her research, "Design of Meltable and Glass-Forming Metal–Organic Frameworks via Crystal Engineering." To encourage promising graduate students to pursue crystallographically oriented research, the International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) established the Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship Fund to support the education and research program of promising graduate students in crystallography-related...
CCB is launching, "CCB Spotlight," a new ongoing series of articles that will report on achievements in research, education, career development, and community development among students, alumni, faculty, staff, groups and wider members of the chemistry and chemical biology community at Harvard. To nominate an individual and or a group to be spotlighted, please complete this short form or reach out to Communications Manager Yahya Chaudhry.
In honor of Black History Month, the first article in this series profiles alumnus Percy Lavon Julian, A.M '23 -- a grandson of slaves who overcame systemic racism to become an entrepenurial pioneer in the chemical synthesis of medicinal drugs from plants.
Jarad Mason, Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, has won the 2021 Dream Chemistry Award for his project on treating hypoxia with microporous water. The Dream Chemistry Award is an international competition that recognizes young chemists who "dream of solving fundamental problems with bold ideas." The competition is organized by the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
