Micromeritics Announces Its Second Instrumentation Grant Award Winner

Abstract:
Micromeritics recently launched an Instrument Grant Program intended to provide particle characterization instruments to non-profit universities and research organizations for the purpose of fostering and supporting meritorious research projects. Many deserving applications have been received.

Dr. John Monnier, Research Professor and Principal Investigator states, "One of the primary emphasis areas of the University is nanotechnology, and the efforts are being led by the USC Nanocenter. Nanoscale catalysis is a focal point, or thrust area, of the Nanocenter which includes not only the traditional areas of catalyst synthesis and evaluation for environmental and chemical processes, but also the Future Fuels initiative at USC which is heavily focused on fuel cells and alternative energy sources, of which catalysts and electrocatalysts are key components.
