Micromeritics has selected the winner of its instrumentation grant for the second quarter of the year.
An AutoChem II 2920 Catalyst Characterisation System has been awarded to the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia.
"The AutoChem II system will directly enable new research approaches in 21 projects covering four different research groups," commented Christopher Jones, the principal investigator at the Institute who directs research into materials synthesis, among other subjects.
"The instrument will play a central role in my catalysis and adsorptive separation research programme," he pointed out.
Micromeritics highlighted that its grant programme is designed to promote and advance the acquisition and use of particle characterisation instrumentation, not generally available through other means, to non-profit universities and institutions.
"We are very proud and excited to present this award in an ongoing grant programme to support important research," said the firm's president, Preston Hendrix.
Earlier this month Micromeritics launched a new range of instrument maintenance programmes with a variety of levels of product support and response times, designed to eliminate service issues before they arise.See all the latest jobs in Science
