Summary of 2015 NECZA Poster Session

The poster session for the 2015 NECZA meeting had a great turnout with 26 participants, 16 of which entered the poster competition. Students and postdocs from 9 universities in 7 different states took part in the poster session. The two winners of the competition were:

  • Bahar Ipek (University of Delaware, Lobo group), "Methane to Methanol Conversion on Copper containing Small-pore zeolites"
  • Yiqing Wu (University of Maryland, Liu group), "Mo/Lamellar MFI zeolite Catalysts with Tunable Meso-/microporosity for Direct Methane Aromatization Reactions"

Each of the winners received a $100 prize and also had the opportunity to discuss their research in a 15-minute presentation during the afternoon session of the NECZA meeting. On behalf of the NECZA organizing committee, I want to thank all the students and postdocs who participated in the poster session for being a big reason why the whole meeting was successful.
