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

                                            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

   Petrochemicals
   Pharmaceuticals
   Pulp and paper products
   Specialty chemicals
   Preparation for medical and law school

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

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

                             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.

              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.

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.

 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.
