The department is offering a new core graduate course starting this winter (W2022). The course is titled "Advanced Materials in Chemical Engineering" (CHEE 688), and will be co-taught by Prof. Noémie-Manuelle Dorval Courchesne and Prof. Reghan Hill. The course will cover a range of fundamental and applied concepts related to materials engineering, with a focus on topics of interest in chemical engineering. These concepts will be applied to inorganic materials, nanostructured materials, soft matter and polymers, and biological materials.

Canada and Germany produce a combined 6.3 million tons of ammonia annually. Used primarily in the fertilizer, textile, and pharmaceutical industries, conventional ammonia production is energy-intensive and accounts for up to two per cent of primary energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Researchers at McGill and the Technical University of Munich (TUM), recently received a funding boost to undertake a collaborative project with the goal of producing renewable, “green” ammonia from hydrogen and nitrogen by means of an innovative plasma-catalytic process.

Bacteria that move around live on the edge. All the time. Their success, be it in finding nutrients, fending off predators or multiplying depends on how efficiently they navigate through their confining microscopic habitats. Whether these habitats are in animal or plant tissues, in waste, or in other materials.

To ensure that California’s groundwater is sustainably managed in the future and over the long-term, current state definitions of what constitutes groundwater may need to be revised, according to research published this week in PNAS. A McGill University-led research team has analyzed big data of more than 200,000 groundwater samples taken from across the state and found that there are problems with the guidelines used for groundwater management.

Using a new technique, a team of McGill University researchers has found tiny and previously undetectable ‘hot spots’ of extremely high stiffness inside aggressive and invasive breast cancer tumours. Their findings suggest, for the first time, that only very tiny regions of a tumor need to stiffen for metastasis to take place. Though still in its infancy, the researchers believe that their technique may prove useful in detecting and mapping the progression of aggressive cancers.
