Student leadership in catalysis

Lehigh's Christopher J. Keturakis, graduate student in the chemical engineering under the supervision of Professor Israel E. Wachs, took second place in The Catalysis Club of Philadelphia’s Graduate Student Poster Contest in late October. This event is one of the region’s premier opportunities for graduate students to showcase their work with the local chemical industry professionals. Keturakis’ Poster entitled “New Insights into the Water-Gas Shift Reaction over Bulk Cr2O3*Fe2O3 Mixed Oxide Catalysts: A Combined Operando Raman-IR-XAS-XPS Investigation” discussed how new insights are allowing for the establishment of molecular level models, based on direct observations during relevant WGS reaction conditions.
