Mesoscale Chemistry: A Workshop Summary

At the mesoscale, in the range extending from large molecules through viruses to eukaryotic cells, interesting ensemble effects and the functionality critical to macroscopic phenomenon begins to manifest itself. This workshop explored how knowledge about mesoscale phenomena can impact chemical research and development activities and vice versa.


Industrialization of Biology

This report provides a roadmap of necessary advances in basic science and engineering capabilities in order to realize the full benefit of research investments intended to enable the advanced manufacturing of chemicals using biological systems.

Study in Progress

Effects of Diluted Bitumen on the Environment

In this current study, a committee will analyze whether the relevant properties of diluted bitumen differ sufficiently from those of other crude oils commonly transported in US transmission pipelines to warrant modifications of the regulations governing spill response plans, spill preparedness, and/or cleanup.
