Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department Annual Report 2004

Dear Alumni and Friends of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering: I and my colleagues of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are pleased to send you a copy of our Annual Report. This past year has been a busy and productive time for the Department. We recruited two new faculty who will eventually bring our numbers up to 16 and continued to produce impressive numbers of highly qualified graduates: 57 Bachelor of Science, 2 Master of Science and 7 Doctor of Philosophy. More details of our continuing and graduating students‟ accomplishments are included in the following pages. In April of this past year our name change to Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering was approved by the Board of Trustees, after a process led by L. S. Fan that took about two years from beginning to end. This name change reflects the changing nature of our profession and also the teaching and research interests of a substantial number of our faculty. We will continue with only one degree in Chemical Engineering but there will be a course work concentration in biomolecular engineering for those students who have an interest in this direction. Our two new faculty are Jessica Winters and Michael Paulaitis. Jessica Winters received her Ph. D. from the University of Texas-Austin and will join our faculty in July 2006 after a two-year postdoctoral experience at Harvard. Jessica‟s thesis was on the topic of quantum dots with their application as biosensors. It turns out that her expertise fits very well with a special success that Jim Lee has had this year in leading an effort that brought a $12.9 million Nanostructure Science and Engineering Center to OSU. This five-year NSF Center will greatly benefit our interdisciplinary activities in this important technology and is a great win for Jim and the University. The theme of the center is to create affordable nanostructure-based biomedical devices. More than 30 faculty are involved in the center, from different departments and colleges, with more than a quarter of them coming from our Department. Our second faculty member hired involved the recruitment of an Ohio Eminent Scholar, a very special and prestigious appointment. The endowment for these chairs is provided partly by the Regents and partly through donor participation and currently there are only about 10 of these positions across the University. We were very fortunate to recruit Michael Paulaitis, the former Department Chair at Johns Hopkins University, for this position. Michael joined us on January 1, 2005 and brings with him expertise in molecular thermodynamics. Michael is recognized internationally for his research on hydrophobic effects, self-assembly in aqueous solution and the role of hydration in protein folding and protein-protein interactions in solution and at interfaces. With Michael and Jessica on our faculty we will be in a much better position to expand our curricular offerings and achieve greater national recognition. As you may be aware we have been planning for some time for an expansion and renovation of Koffolt Laboratories. We have activated a National Committee for this project chaired by Bill Lowrie which will, among other things, begin to organize a fund raising effort for what we expect will be about a $60 million project. Our challenge will be to raise about 25% of the total cost to complement support expected from the State of Ohio. This request to the state originates in a campus-wide competition for “Capital Budget” items. Fortunately we have been the College of Engineering‟s top priority in both the last biennium and in the 2005-07 request. If all goes well we should receive at

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department Annual Report 2004

least $1 million in planning money in 2007. It is hoped that the project could be completed by 2012 or so. We are also beginning early stage planning with an architect regarding conceptual aspects of the expansion and remodeling. With the guidance of our National Committee we have established a Koffolt Expansion and Remodeling Fund and have even begun to receive some initial gifts. This project will obviously be a top priority for the Department over the next several years and one in which we hope all our alumni and friends of the Department will become involved. Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2005. Sincerely,

Stuart L. Cooper

With the addition of “Biomolecular” to the Department name, the Department has instituted a new elective, „Biomolecular Option.” The option is designed to give interested majors significant exposure to biological science and engineering. The curriculum combines chemical and biological sciences with engineering analysis and design to produce graduates capable of applying problem solving skills to a wide variety of industries ranging from traditional chemical manufacturing and consumer products to advanced materials, nanotechnology, and biotechnology. The option is designed to prepare students for careers in pharmacy, medicine, biochemical engineering and biomedical engineering.

First Year Experience
Professor David Tomasko and IGERT Administrator Paula Stevenson, along with colleagues in the First-year Engineering Program, have developed a new laboratory project to introduce freshmen engineers to microfabrication and nanotechnology. Students in the “nano” section of Eng 183 – Introduction to Engineering II, work on a quarter-long project to design, fabricate, and test a polymer-based lab-on-a-chip device. The chip detects the presence of a biological antibody in a sample via antigen-antibody binding and fluorescence emission. Students are exposed to nanotechnology through the course with modules written by faculty

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department Annual Report 2004

around campus (including our own Jim Lee and Jim Rathman) and through tours of several nanotechnology research labs at OSU. The work was supported by a NSF grant from the Nanotechnology in Undergraduate Education program.

Freshman Introductory Course Engineering 100 University Survey for Pre-Chemical Engineers
Engineering 100 is a one-hour survey course intended to give incoming freshmen the opportunity to learn about their future major and understand University rules, regulations and procedures. In winter of 2004 we did an email survey of all of the students that have left the Chemical Engineering program and asked them why they left. Many students had different reasons; however, a theme running throughout the responses was a concern that the survey course did not provide enough information on their future careers if they continued in Chemical Engineering. In light of this feedback, with the leadership of Mary Lamont and the undergraduate studies committee (Rathman, Tomasko, and Chalmers), we decided to make some major changes in our Engineering 100 course. The course was revitalized using various panel discussions with faculty, undergraduate students and industrial participants. A second major change was that students spent four class sessions involved in hands-on projects and demonstrations. Based on the evaluations that we received from students, the course was a success. The panels were enthusiastically received and informative and the students indicated this in their final papers. This is the model that the Department intends to keep using and hopefully will be reflected in increased matriculation of freshmen into a Chemical Engineering major.

Laboratory Modernization
Our undergraduate Chemical Engineering students have for many years been trained in analysis of unit operations, both through lectures and through an intense summer laboratory experience. This approach has led to class after class of graduates having an acknowledged fundamental understanding of the Chemical Engineering discipline (e.g. thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, reaction engineering, etc.) and having a hands-on laboratory based learning experience with specific application oriented problems. The current situation is that the Unit Operations Laboratory class needs to evolve while maintaining the strength of the traditional Chemical Engineering education. This challenge is to be addressed by revising the Chemical Engineering Unit Operations Laboratory to mesh with the general evolution of the Department curriculum. Methods for integrating biological sciences into many of the exercises are being addressed and approaches to integrating electronic data collection into the body of each lab procedure are being implemented. We have begun a five-year program to upgrade and evolve the Unit Operations Lab into a model program that would make our current and future alumni proud.

AIChE Student Chapter
The goals of the AIChE Student Chapter at OSU are to foster the interests of students in Chemical Engineering and to promote their welfare as prospective members of the profession through programs and relations with other Student Chapters and National AIChE; to promote fellowship among the members through various outings, activities, and trips; and to contribute to the development of Chemical Engineering at OSU through activities involving both students and faculty. In 2004 the AIChE student chapter participated in the AIChE National Conference in San Francisco, the AIChE Regional Conference in Chicago, and several AIChE Central Ohio Section meetings. The chapter also competed in the ChemE car competition with Dr. Ted Thomas serving as Advisor, published quarterly newsletters, maintained an AIChE activities website, volunteered to organize Science Day and Science Olympiad events, organized the spring picnic and senior banquet, and hosted numerous speakers from industry and academia to discuss new technologies and career opportunities. The AIChE officers are as follows: Andy Maynard, President Brian Chapman, Vice President Heath Litt, Treasurer Elizabeth Curry, Secretary Heath Litt, Chem E Car President John Daulton, Chem E Car VP Gary Seto, Chem E Car Treasurer Scott Wendell, Membership Chair Meghan Ward, Historian Grady Marcum, Philanthropy Chair Liz Fanton, Publications Chair Bryan Rumbaugh, Social Chair

Co-Op Students
Co-op Placement – Autumn 2003 through Summer 2004 The Engineering Cooperative Education & Internship Program (ECIP) helps undergraduate students to obtain career-related employment of two types: cooperative education (co-op) positions and internships. A co-op experience provides the best opportunity to apply what is learned in the classroom in career-related positions by alternating quarters of full-time coursework with periods of paid, full-time employment. Internship involves one work period with an employer. A work period may last for one quarter or for two or more consecutive quarters. Summer internships are the most popular among students and employers; however, some employers offer internships in autumn, winter, or spring quarters as well. The following is a list of companies that hired students for co-ops or internships, the students who accepted the offers and the quarters they were with each company.

CEGC (Chemical Engineering Graduate Council) Report
The mission of the Chemical Engineering Graduate Council is to foster the professional and personal development of graduate students by providing a forum for graduate students to interact with each other and faculty in professional and social environments. CEGC supports the mission and goals of the department as well as the entire university. In addition, CEGC upholds standards of integrity and academic excellence, recruits top students from diverse backgrounds, and promotes the development of clean and professional laboratories. CEGC hosts and organizes an assortment of events and activities throughout the year, including:        Orientation for new graduate students Seminars presented by chemical engineering graduate students as practice for important conferences and to promote the exchange of ideas. Quarterly luncheons and awards to reward teaching assistants. The first annual graduate recruiting weekend in February 2005. Semi-annual lab and office cleaning competitions Department participation in intramural sporting events such as basketball, softball, soccer, volleyball. Many social events such as the holiday potluck luncheon, bowling, movie and hockey nights and chess and ping pong tournaments.

Chemical Hygiene Committee Renewed Laboratory Safety Focus – A Proactive Initiative
In response to increased University wide laboratory safety initiatives the department formed a new Chemical Hygiene Committee in April 2003. The committee‟s purpose is to serve as the department‟s primary resource for both student education regarding safety, and as the organizer of new safety initiatives. The committee is comprised of graduate students under the supervision of the department OSHA Coordinator John Corn. Monthly meetings are planned and lead by the two graduate student Chemical Hygiene Officers, and attended by student representatives of each research group. Since its formation the committee has organized semiannual safety inspections of all departmental laboratories. In addition the group has overseen the training of undergraduate researchers, regularly updated the department‟s chemical hygiene plan (an OSHA requirement), and organized the disposal of unused chemicals. Under the direction of the Chemical Hygiene Committee the department has continually met with the University‟s new lab standard compliance standards.

Special Activities Lowrie Lecturer
John H. Seinfeld was the 2004 Lowrie Lecturer. Dr. Seinfeld is the Louis E. Nohl Professor in the Divisions of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Engineering and Applied Science at the California Institute of Technology. Professor Seinfeld is widely acknowledged for his research on the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere. Through both experimental and theoretical studies, he has made numerous contributions to our knowledge of the chemistry of the urban atmosphere, the formation, growth, and dynamics of atmospheric aerosols, and the role of aerosols in climate. Professor Seinfeld has received numerous honors and awards.
LECTURE I: Aerosols and Climate The accumulation of greenhouse gases in the earth‟s atmosphere is leading to global climate change. Particles in the air and aerosols exert complex and important effects on climate as well. In order to more accurately predict future climate, the aerosol effects must be understood. LECTURE II: Both Sides Now: The Art and Science of Clouds Clouds have preoccupied artists, poets, and playwrights throughout the ages. Clouds are the most visible manifestation of the ceaseless flow of water between the earth and sky. Clouds and water ultimately will determine the direction and severity of climate change on the planet.

National Organizing Committee Meeting Wednesday, May 12, 2004
The inaugural meeting of this Committee was held in dinner format at the Blackwell Hotel on May 12, 2004. Bill Lowrie chaired the Committee and in attendance were Richard Arnold, Paul Bates, Ron Harris, Ed Slowter and Michael Winfield. Karen Hendricks, a member of the Ohio State University Board of Trustees, attended as an observer. Most members of the Department attended a pre-dinner reception. The formal part of the meeting had several presentations and much discussion. Stuart Cooper talked about Department goals and presented a brief departmental situation analysis. Jack Zakin reviewed the plans for the Koffolt Laboratories renovation and expansion as far as they have been developed. Finally Dave McCarthy, Development Officer in the College of Engineering, described the path forward regarding the University process for capital budget decisions, likely competing projects, timelines and what it would require in private sector fund-raising to complement the state contribution to the project cost. It appears likely that this Committee will have to organize a campaign to raise anywhere from $12-$14M should the projected total costs of the project reach $60M as roughly estimated by the University. The Committee members were enthusiastic about taking on this challenge which will assure new generations of Chemical Engineers a quality environment for a top-quality education.

National Organizing Committee Meeting Friday, October 8, 2004
Participants: George Acock, Dave Chapman, Ed Slowter, Paul Bates, Ron Harris, Dick Arnold, Bill Lowrie, Bud Baeslack, David McCarthy, Stuart Cooper, Umit Ozkan, Marty Feinberg, S.T. Yang, L.-S. Fan, Jack Zakin, John Corn, and Isamu Kusaka. Dean Baeslack stated that Koffolt needs to be renovated to attract superior students and future faculty members. George Acock presented three different possible approaches for the renovation. Stuart Cooper suggested first renovating Unit Operations and then building an addition so that the additional space and the renovated Unit Operations area could be used as swing space. Jack Zakin passed out copies of the updated Rationale for Koffolt Expansion and Reburbishing. Dave McCarthy spoke about fund raising details.
