Summary of 2017 NECZA Poster Session

The poster session for the 2017 NECZA meeting had 12 participants, 10 of whom entered the poster competition. Students and postdocs from 4 universities and NIST took part in the poster session. The two winners of the competition were:

  • Michael Manto (Johns Hopkins University, Prof. Chao Wang group): Recovery of Nitrogen and Phosphorus Nutrients Using Metal-Exchanged ZSM-5
  • Nicholas Gould (University of Delaware, Prof. Bingjun Xu group): Temperature Programmed Desorption of Pyridine on Zeolites in the Presence of Solvents

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.
