The University of Kentucky, Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) anticipates adding a post-doctoral engineering/scientist position in the carbon capture/sequestration and energy areas. The new position will be involved in studies related to electrochemical applications for the treatment of displaced brine originating from CO2 sequestration sites.

The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research Carbon Material's research group has made the top 50 most cited papers in Applied Physics Letters.
As stated by the journal web site, "This collection represents the most highly cited papers ever published in Applied Physics Letters. These articles stand as a testament to the hard work and outstanding contributions of the authors to the applied physics field and to the scientific community at large."
Lead author Dali Qian along with other UK CAER scientists Rodney Andrews and Terry Rantell and former University of Kentucky scientist, now at NCSU (North Carolina State University) Elizabeth Dickey are pleased and delighted with the recognition.
The published paper is Load transfer and deformation mechanisms in carbon nanotube-polystyrene composites by D. Qian, E. C. Dickey, R. Andrews, and T. Rantell in Appl. Phys. Lett. 76, 2868 (2000).

The Clean Fuels and Chemical Research Group at the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research can lay claim to not one but two "most cited" papers in the area of applied catalysis research.
One of the most downloaded articles on the Applied Catalysis A web site is ... Fischer–Tropsch synthesis: Effect of Pd, Pt, Re, and Ru noble metal promoters on the activity and selectivity of a 25%Co/Al2O3 catalyst, by Wenping Ma, Gary Jacobs, Robert A. Keogh, Dragomir B. Bukur, and Burtron H. Davis.
An older publication from the Clean Fuels research group continues to be one of the most cited papers for the same journal ... Fischer-Tropsch synthesis: Temperature programmed EXAFS/XANES investigation of the influence of support type, cobalt loading, and noble metal promoter addition to the reduction behavior of cobalt oxide particles, vol 333, Issue 2, December 2007, Pages 177-191 by Jacobs, G., Ji, Y., Davis, B.H., Cronauer, D., Kropf, A.J., Marshall, C.L.
