Professor Adam Veige wins JSPS Fellowship–Will travel to Japan

Congratulations to Adam Veige for winning a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Fellowship for Research in Japan. JSPS invitation fellowships are designed to enable Japanese researchers to invite their overseas colleagues to Japan to participate in cooperative work and other academic activities. As such, Dr. Veige will travel to Japan and spend 18 days visiting various institutions.

Researchers of all countries having diplomatic relations with Japan are eligible. Japanese researchers who wish to host overseas researchers in Japan can submit applications. Dr. Veige was nominated by his host researcher, Yasuyuki Tezuka, of Tokyo Institute of Technology. Their research theme was, “Precision Designing of Cyclic Polymers for Innovative Soft Materials.”

Ultrapermeable polymer by design

Ultrapermeable micro-porous polymer designed by close coupling of experimental and computational predictions

Colina, McKeown, and co-workers reported in a recent article in Nature Materials that the inefficient packing of two-dimensional (2D) chains of PIM-TMN-Trip generates an ultrapermeable polymer. This microporous polymer increases the efficiency of membranes for gas separations to new boundaries. More about this work can be found at doi:10.1038/nmat4939.
