Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Xiao-Ying Yu
We will use in situ chemical imaging enabled by the microfluidic reactor SALVI to study a NAVY bilgewater emulsion model. Our main objective is to understand the evolving oil-water liquid-liquid interface. Such fundamental understanding is...
Lead Institution: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Jennifer Mortimer
Plants fix carbon via photosynthesis, the majority of which is incorporated into cell wall polysaccharides. These polysaccharides are synthesized in different cellular compartments, but are assembled outside the cell to form a complex biomaterial....
