Next IAB Columbia Meeting: August 2015
The CPaSS Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) holds meetings twice a year for member companies, as well as potential sponsoring companies. The meetings provide an opportunity for members and potential member to meet with CPaSS directors and staff, and participate actively in researchers' presentations. Check out details for the next meeting!

The National Science Foundation is just one sponsor of the center.
The National Science Foundation Center for Particulate and Surfactant Systems (NSF IUCRC CPass) was established in 1998 by the Henry Krumb School of Mines, Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry and Department of Chemistry at Columbia University. The Center encompasses detailed structure-property assessment of several classes of surface-active molecules including oligomeric, polymeric, and bio-molecules. The aim of the IUCS is to develop and characterize novel surfactants for industrial applications such as coatings, dispersions, deposition, gas hydrate control, personal care products, soil decontamination, waste treatment, corrosion prevention, flotation and controlled chemical reactions. Our proposed research thus focuses on the design and development of specialty surfactants, characterization of their solution and interfacial behavior and identification of suitable industrial applications for these materials.
