Langmuir Lecture Award Given to Environmental Remediation Sciences Researcher
Published: July 26, 2004
Posted: August 17, 2004

Dr Darsh Wasan has been selected to give one of two 2004 Langmuir Lectures of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry at the ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia on August 24. Dr. Wasan holds the Motorola Chair in Chemical Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology, where he also is Vice President for International Affairs. His lecture will be on liquid interfaces, including disperse systems. He is carrying out research in this area in the Environmental Management Science Program. His project is focused on understanding foaming in radioactive waste streams. In the course of this research he has developed solutions to foaming problems that have been implemented in waste processing at the DOE Savannah River Site.
