Dr. Michael Hu is a chemical engineer and biochemical engineer by education, serving as a Senior Research Staff Member at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Meanwhile, he is appointed by the University of Tennessee (UT) as a Joint Faculty Professor at the UT Bredesen Center and an Adjunct Professor at the Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Department. He is the Founder Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Nanomaterials. Dr. Huâ€™s research interest is in advanced materials and chemical processing technologies such as for separations and catalysis. He is a team leader for a Department of Energy (DOE) program that has won a 2014 R&D100 Award based on advanced nano-membranes work. His membrane technology development work became an DOE success story in July 2017 (https://energy.gov/eere/success-stories/articles/eere-success-story-new-...). Dr. Hu has also served as the thermochemical pathway team lead for a DOE-sponsored multi-lab Separations Consortium program funded since FY2017.
Over the past 22 years or so, Dr. Hu has served roles as Principal Investigator and Project Team Leader for a variety of fundamental and applied nanomaterials and nanotechnology research programs and projects that develop materials chemistry, surface/interface sciences, and chemical process engineering for applications in clean renewable efficient energy and functional nanomaterials/devices. He has been leading or supporting multiple programs in nanoscience, engineering, and materials research sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and other federal agencies. Industry sponsored projects are also an important part of his research and development portfolio, with the goal to provide nano-engineered materials and processes solutions to problems facing to private industries today. Since 1995, Dr. Hu has successfully developed, managed, and conducted multidisciplinary R&D projects that require integration of nanomaterials chemistry, (bio)molecular sciences, colloid & interface sciences, and chemical nano-manufacturing engineering relevant to the chemical synthesis of nanoparticles, nanocrystals, membranes, nanostructured graphene materials, advanced ceramics, films/coatings, self-assembled nanostructures, nanocomposites or hybrid materials, and other nanomaterials for energy (e.g., solid-state lighting, solar cells, supercapacitors, biofuel processing), medical, detectors or sensors, national/homeland security, and other nanotechnology applications.

Dr. Adango Miadonye is a professor of chemistry and chemical engineering and chair of the Department of Chemistry at CBU. He obtained his PhD from Loughborough University, England, and did his postdoctoral research at Lakehead University, Ontario. With over 80 publications, several book chapters and numerous conference papers, he is well published and is the Program Chairperson and a member of the Board of Trustees (Atlantic Canada) for the Society of Petroleum Engineers. Adango has been with CBU for more than 15 years.
Currently, Adango has partnered with Innovation 121 Inc. to conduct some very interesting research. â€œThe natural deposits of oil sands in Canada are currently estimated to contain over 168 billion barrels of oil,â€ says Adango. â€œMy research group investigates rheology and transport property of reservoir fluids, heavy oil and bitumen, providing knowledge to improve production, enhanced oil recovery, upgrading, refining and transportation of one of Canadaâ€™s richest resources.â€
Adangoâ€™s collaboration with Innovation 121 Inc. will help develop a new, cleaner oil sands technology, an engineered micro-bubbles process that facilitates oil separation from the sand grains. The new technology will mitigate several environmental issues associated with current technologies and also improve the bitumen recovery rate to over 60 per cent. The successful outcome of this project promises millions of dollars in cost savings for one of Canadaâ€™s largest industries.

Coordination chemistry of macrocyclic ligands has been a fascinating area of current research interestall over the world. Thecontinued interest and quest in designing new macrocyclic ligands stem mainly from their use as modelsfor protein-metal binding sites in a substantial arrayof metalloproteins in biological systems, as syntheticionophores, as models to study the magnetic ex- change phenomena, as therapeutic reagents in chelate therapy for the treatment of metal intoxication, as cyclic antibiotics that owe their antibiotic actions to specific metal complexation, to study the guest- host interactions, and in catalysis. Recognition of the importance of complexes containing macrocyclic ligands has led to a considerable effort being invested in developing reliable inexpensive synthetic routes for these compounds.
