Chemistry Prof. Joins in Nanotube Transport Research

Professor of Chemistry Mark Ellison’s research with scientists from the Massachusetts Instittute of Technology and Seoul University in Korea  has been featured in various scientific publications.  The research, on the transport of small molecules and biologically important ions through single-walled carbon nanotubes, finds that the size of molecules matters in passing through microscopic cylinders called nanotubes.

This research will also involve Ursinus chemistry students, who will work in the MIT labs, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
