NASA astronaut and Oregon State alumnus Donald R. Pettit came to talk with CBEE students today at lunch. How to get into the space program is the second most-common question astronauts are always asked. (The No. 1 question has to do with something everybody does, every day, here on Earth.)

Congratulations to bioengineering seniors Kendra Jones (pictured) and Anna-Liisa Sepp on becoming published authors. The two had just finished their first year at Oregon State in 2017 when, as Johnson interns, they spent the summer working at Oregon Health & Science University investigating platelet function in newborns. The study they contributed to was published in January in the journal Platelets. https://beav.es/4ib

Happy Linus Pauling Day! Pauling (1922 B.S., Chemical Engineering), one of the founders of modern quantum chemistry, was born on this day in 1901, in Portland. His early work on the nature of the chemical bond — and how bonds help to determine the properties of compounds — earned him his first Nobel Prize, for Chemistry, in 1954. (He was awarded the Peace Prize as well, in 1962.) Pauling is widely regarded as "the father of molecular genetics," a recognition made by no less an authority than fellow 1962 Nobel laureate Francis Crick.

Electroreduction of CO2 Catalyzed by a Heterogenized Zn–Porphyrin Complex with a Redox-Innocent Metal Center

New catalysts can reduce carbon dioxide electrochemically to create useful chemical products, helping to offset the greenhouse effect that drives global warming. ACS's "Reserach of the Day" for Dec. 11 is a CO2 catalysis paper with CBEE Zhenxing Feng, associate professor of chemical engineering, and doctoral student Maoyu Wang listed as contributing authors.

Transition-metal-based molecular complexes are a class of catalyst materials for electrochemical CO2 reduction to CO that can be rationally designed to deliver high catalytic performance. One common mechanistic feature of these electrocatalysts developed thus far is an electrogenerated reduced metal...

To save climate-sensitive pikas, conservation efforts need to get local

Chris Daly, senior research professor in CBEE, contributed volumes of high-resolution precipitation, temperature, and humidity data to a landmark study on the varying responses to climate change within a species, published in Nature Climate Change. The paper challenges widely held assumptions by suggesting that geography, and not just genetics, could play a significant role in how a vulnerable species adapts.

American pikas’ responses to climate are driven by location, location, location.

I graduated in 1984. Now doing research on Climate change. My published paper proves if we stop all non-sustainable deforestation and plant 100 million trees and shrubs we can bring down Atmospheric CO2 in 15-20 years. You can see my presentation to the 2018 Climate Change Conference in this video.
Hello, I just solved a nice optimization problem from Dr. Bard's book on the usefulness of SageMath[Page 71, 1; 2; See Quote]. I have never used the Mixed Integer Linear Programming method for optimization but it is useful for some problems. I can see it used in, as an example, "Supply Chain Management." and chemical engineering material balances and energy balances. SageMath is an open source competitor to MatLab, Maple, Mathematica, etc. Dr. Bard said Business 100, at his college, covers more simple (pencil and paper problems) Linear Programming methods. There were 7 mines and 4 shipping facilities. I had to minimize the cost of the shipped taconite and figure out which mines would ship taconite to specific facilities. I know I discovered the correct solution because Dr. Bard supplied the answer, not the solution, to this somewhat complicated problem. Here is the problem: Table on page: 72[1] Quote: "First, it must be the case that the amount of taconite leaving each mine (for all four destinations) should be exactly the amount produced that week. It should not be greater—otherwise you’re ordering your mines to ship more taconite than they actually have; it should not be less—otherwise you’ll have a build up of taconite that cannot be stored on site. The total production at each mine is listed in Table 1. Second, the demand and capacity of each shipping facility must be respected. The Two Harbors, WI facility can receive and ship up to 18,000 tons. The Green Bay facility can receive and ship up to 25,000 tons. The Duluth/Superior shipping complex can receive and ship between 15,000 and 45,000 tons, the minimum being there to ensure there is enough revenue to pay the bills at this expensive location. The Minneapolis facility can receive and ship between 10,000 and 30,000 tons. Third, the shipping schedule should carry out the task of bringing the taconite to the receiving and shipping stations at minimum cost. The cost of shipping from each mine to each receiving and shipping facility is given in the Table 1, in dollars per ton." [Page 72, 1] References: [1] Bard, Gregory V.
