NSF - Chemical and Biological Separations (CBS)
Visit Website
The Chemical and Biological Separations CBS) program supports fundamental research on novel methods and materials for separations processes at the molecular level. These separations processes are central to the chemical, biochemical, materials, energy, and pharmaceutical industries. A fundamental understanding of the interfacial, transport, and thermodynamic behavior of multi-phase chemical systems as well as quantitative descriptions of processing characteristics in the process-oriented industries is critical for efficient resource management and effective environmental protection. The program encourages proposals that address emerging research areas and technologies, have a high degree of interdisciplinary thought coupled with knowledge creation, and must integrate education and research. Newer areas of emphasis include separation of biological molecules and separations that lead to environmentally benign processing. Much of the current work involves the investigation of new membrane materials such as novel polymers, zeolites, mixed matrix materials, carbon nanotubes, biological and biomemetic materials, and glasses. Projects on modeling transport processes—especially at the molecular level—in membranes are supported by the program. For the hydrogen economy membranes that selectively transport atomic, molecular or ionic hydrogen and oxygen are required. In fuel cells, current membrane materials often lack sufficient selectivity to eliminate critical contaminants or to prevent leakage transport between fuel-cell compartments; CBS supports work to overcome these barriers. Adsorption on materials ranging from hydrogels to micas is being studied. New processes for drinking water purification rely on the development of new materials for membranes and adsorbents, which are supported by CBS.
