Tufts University Prof. Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos named as AAAS Fellow
Date:12/18/2008

onger. The researchers synthesize single crystal oxides at the nanoscale with specific shapes (rods, cubes, polyhedra) and crystal faces; dope these with various metals and study them as catalysts for alcohol steam reforming, the water-gas shift reaction, hydrocarbon oxidation and other reactions, including sulfur removal reactions. The aim is to benefit fuel processing overall at all scalesfrom providing power to a laptop or cell phone to increasing energy from a power plantand for any fuel gas stream, including coal-derived gas.

"There are always new things to discover in materials science which impact catalysis," said Flytzani-Stephanopoulos. "With new methods for the synthesis of nanomaterials rich in defects, and with proper doping of these structures with a variety of metals, it's like starting from scratch again to understand their chemistry and tailor their catalytic properties to optimize both their activity and selectivity for a large number of reactions of interest to clean and sustainable energy production."

This year 486 members were selected as Fellows because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. This year's AAAS Fellows will be announced in the AAAS News & Notes section of the journal Science on 19 December 2008. New Fellows will be honored during the 2009 AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago on February 14.
