Prof. Gogotsi is Elected to Chair Gordon Research Conference of Nanomaterials for Applications in Energy Technology
Congratulations to Prof. Yury Gogotsi who has been elected to Chair the 2018 Gordon Research Conference of Nanomaterials for Applications in Energy Technology.
It’s been just over five years since researchers in Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering reported on a new, two-dimensional material composed of titanium and carbon atoms. Their creation, dubbed MXene, which is, cleverly, both chemical shorthand for the material and a homonym of Maxine, is now the focus of research at dozens of partner institutions from countries spanning every continent but Antarctica. And a feature story, on the cover of the latest edition of Nature Reviews Materials, suggests that even more should take up the pursuit.

Our review article has been included in the February issue of Nature Reviews Materials and Babak’s colored SEM Image of oxidized MXene is on the cover: http://www.nature.com/natrevmats/volumes/2/issues/2
Congratulations to Babak Anasori and his co-authors on having their papers listed as both “Hot Paper” and “Highly Cited Paper” on ISI. This paper is on discovery and properties of 2D ordered double-transition metal carbides, which was published in ACSNano and was selected both as the cover and Editors’ Choice article by ACS.
Many Drexel Nanomaterials Institute students and alumni are in attendance at the Fall MRS Meeting in Boston, MA this week. DNI student, Kathleen Maleski also got the Best Poster nomination from her symposium, as did Dr. Babak Anasori for his symposium.
PhD Candidate Katie Van Aken was awarded the highly competitive MRS Best Poster Award. Congratulations to all!

Drexel University students have been very successful in winning the prestigious Boren Fellowship. Our very own PhD student, Amanda Pentecost, is one of them. Only about 10% out of 250 or so combined Boren scholars and fellows are science/technology/engineering majors. Read the full story here.
