Benjamin Bucior received a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. His research work is currently focused on using computer modeling to analyze large databases of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). These materials self-assemble from chemical building blocks (like K’NEX pieces snapping together) into a variety of “nano-sponge” crystals. Through careful design, MOFs can capture emissions from power plants, improve the gas tank capacity in cars powered by hydrogen or natural gas, and enable high-efficiency chemical purification.
