Featured Content: Congratulations to Levente and Peter for their recent poster award at NAMS!

Congratulations to Levente Cseri and Peter Kisszekelyi for their recent poster awards at NAMS 2020 – Engineering Membrane Materials, Processes and Applications, 18-21 May 2020. Levente presented his work on graphene oxide nanocomposite anion exchange membranes for improved electrodialysis, and won the 3rd prize for his poster at the Materials session. His article on this topic was also featured on the front cover of JMCA. Peter presented his work on cinchona-decorated cyclodextrin organocatalyst for asymmetric synthesis in a continuous-flow membrane reactor, which he published in the Journal of Catalysis. He won the 2nd prize for his poster at the Processes session.
