  • Funding Opportunity: Chemical and Biological Separations (CBS)

Chemical and Biological Separations (CBS), PD 14-1417

Deadline for full proposal:  October 29, 2013

The Chemical and Biological Separations (CBS) program supports fundamental research on novel methods and materials for separation processes.  These processes are central to the chemical, biochemical, materials, energy, and pharmaceutical industries.  A fundamental understanding of the interfacial, transport, and thermodynamic behavior of multiphase 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 integrate education and research.

Research topics of particular interest in CBS include fundamental molecular-level work on:

  • Nanostructured materials for separations
  • Biorenewable resource separation processes
  • Purification of drinking water
  • Field (flow, magnetic, electrical) induced separations
  • Separation of molecular constituents from blood
