Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern distinguished
During a dedicated Honorary Session at its Annual Meeting 2022 the Adsorption and Ion Exchange Section of the Separation Division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) awarded on November 14 in Phoenix/Arizona (USA) a Plaque of Honor to Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern for his outstanding contributions to the fundamentals of adsorption, chromatography, and chemical engineering.
Presentation of the Plaque of Honor to Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern by Prof. Handan Tezel and Dr. Daniel Siderius.
The Honorary Session was organized by Prof. Handan Tezel (University Ottawa/Canada) and Dr. Daniel Siderius (National Institute of Standards/USA). Renowned chemical engineers from North America and Europe presented the current state of the art regarding the application of porous solid materials to separate mixture of gases and to purify dissolved components. Prof. Arvind Rajendran (University Alberta in Edmonton/Canada) described modern engineering tools for screening and discovery of new solid sorbents capable to capture CO2 from air and gaseous waste streams. Dr. Balamurali Sreedhar (Dow Chemical, Midland, USA), who received his PhD in 2010 at the Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg, reported about the status of industrial application of chromatographic counter-current operation. A theoretical description of selective adsorption of surfactants on coronavirus virions was presented by Prof. Alexander Neimark (Rutgers University/USA). Also five other lectures revealed numerous connections to research activities that were and are carried out in the groups of Prof. Seidel-Morgenstern at the Otto von Guericke University and the Max Planck Institute.
