CREST Conference

“New Nanoporous Materials for Life Support Systems in Space" by Dr. Arturo J. Hernández-Maldonado, CREST Co-Director & Chemical Engineering faculty
Thursday April 3, 10:30AM-12:00PM
Stefani Amphitheater (S-113)
More information...

This seminar will cover some of the most significant challenges found in the design of nanoporous materials, both rigid and flexible, that are tailored for life support systems in space applications. The presentation will show how it is possible to assemble, from the bottom-up, nanoporous adsorbents that are suitable to capture carbon dioxide from space cabins while lowering its concentration to the levels necessary to properly sustain long-term missions, including the exploration of Mars. In addition, since future space missions will use carbon dioxide to produce oxygen and even power, the seminar will also show how it is possible to store and deliver carbon dioxide using nanoporous materials without compromising much of the available energy or resources.

NanoMes in Public Schools

In March & April NanoDays will be celebrated on middle and high schools in the Western regional of Puerto Rico.

NanoDays is a national effort coordinated by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education (NISE) Network. The main goal is to inform and educate the community about Nanoscale Science or, just, Nanoscience and its applications.

High School and Middle School Teachers from Puerto Rico’s western region participated of a week long series of activities organized by CREST.

They visited labs, learned about the cutting edge research being conducted at the University and shared the knowledge acquired during their own research experience. Several teachers also attended a workshop on blog creation in order to record their Clubs activities.

Created blogs include:

Escuela Superior Eugenio María de Hostos (Mayagüez)

Escuela Superior Leonides Morales Rodriguez (Lajas)

Escuela Superior Inés María Mendoza (Cabo Rojo)

Escuela Vocacional Superior Dr. Pedro Perea Fajardo (Mayagüez)

Escuela Intermedia Elpidio H. Rivera (Mayagüez)
