Chemical Engineer Receives $264,000

Abstract:
Dr. Yueh-Lin (Lynn) Loo at The University of Texas at Austin has received a 2005 Young Investigator Award from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation to find ways to improve the ability of polyaniline to conduct electricity.

Loo, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, will use the three-year, $264,000 award to seek a 10-fold increase in the conductive ability of the plastic. That enhancement might be enough for manufacturers to begin considering polyaniline-based wires for products that include: electronic display screens that can be rolled up after use, clothing with polyaniline woven into it that changes color when exposed to a harmful chemical, and implantable medical devices that release a drug when someone’s body temperature changes.
