This prize, established in 1987 by Professor Herbert Morawetz in memory of his teacher and co-sponsored by the Dow Chemical Company, is given to a graduate student in chemistry whose paper has been published, or has been accepted for publication in a refereed journal. Congratulations Weiqi!


The Eirich Morawetz prize, funded from gifts received during the 1985 birthday celebrations of Professor Emeritus Herbert Morawetz and the late Professor Frederick Eirich is presented to the first-year graduate student with the highest academic record in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Congratulations Filip!

NYU Tandon’s “Faculty-Engineers in Residence” Program Is Thriving

There are several advantages to being a tenant company in NYU Tandon’s network of Future Labs: office space in the heart of the fastest-growing tech hub in the country, access to an exceptionally talented and motivated pool of interns, introductions to new markets and sources of capital ... the list is…

Researchers Use Novel Microreactor To Study Formation of Methane Hydrate, an Icy Prison for Key Greenhouse Gas

BROOKLYN, New York – Researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering are using a novel means of studying how methane and water form methane hydrate that allows them to examine discrete steps in the process faster and more efficiently. NYU Tandon researchers led by Ryan Hartman, an assistant professor of…

Tandon Researchers Investigate Small-Scale Reactors with Big-Scale Potential

The industrial use of polyolefins — a class of polymer ubiquitous in food packaging, consumer goods, and other items — requires an enormous amount of time, space, and energy. In order to discover a new polymer, chemical engineers must laboriously screen hundreds of catalysts, with a typical campaign taking up…

New Microreactor to Study Methane Clathrates

… A team of researchers at New York University Tandon School of Engineering are working to shed some light on this process [by which methane becomes transformed into clathrate] with a new microreactor. … The team, led by Ryan Hartman, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, has opted to use microfluidic…

'Robo-Chemist' Optimises Reactions in One Day

Jamie Durrani for Chemistry World October 28th, 2016 Source: Researchers in the US have developed an automated flow reactor that can respond to the results of experiments and determine the optimum conditions for catalytic reactions within a single day. Identifying the ideal conditions for a catalytic reaction can be…

Working in Tandem at Tandon

It’s not uncommon for writers and artists to seek residencies—programs that provide physical facilities, networking opportunities, and conditions conducive to creativity. In exchange, the institutions offering those residencies may get the right to exhibit any completed artwork, a ready source of guest lecturers, and the prestige of being affiliated with acknowledged…

Hartman Research Laboratory

This state-of-the-art facility was designed as a world-class chemical reaction engineering laboratory with unique capabilities not often found in academia.  The laboratory, consisting of over 1100 sq. ft. of space, includes advanced Air Sentry chemical fume hoods specially designed for continuous-flow, multiphase reactions and materials science using ultra-high purity gases. …

Cleanroom and Nanofabrication Facilities

NYU maintains a cleanroom and nanofabrication facility across the hallway from the Hartman Research Laboratory where microsystems may be fabricated. Multiple Class 100 cleanrooms with nanofabrication equipment necessary to conduct similar research are in proximity to the laboratory: NYU Nanofabrication Facility CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) Nanofabrication…

NYU Tandon MakerSpace

NYU Tandon MakerSpace: Fall 2016, NYU Tandon opened a 10,000-square-foot MakerSpace filled with cutting-edge tools for students and scholars from across campus to go from product idea into working prototype.  The MakerSpace provides an exceptional project-based learning environment that offers that opportunity for the students to design and fabricate devices. …

Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL)

Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL): The Hartman Research Laboratory is also located within proximity of Brookhaven National Laboratory (~2.5 hours). BNL houses extensive national analytical facilities in the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN).  This includes small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) equipment and the National Synchrotron Light Source II.
