FSU has certainly made the news recently with the work being done in the area of microwave enhanced acceleration experimental studies (Heck if you missed it, recent progress discussions continue to make microwave process a current hot topic). Albert Stiegman (stay tuned for more) has shown a strong interest in pushing the envelope for microwave methodologies in inorganic and organic reactions. Look at this set-up for Carbon gasification reactions — wow!

If you are a bit more like — take a look through his research and areas of specialty…doesn’t take long to know this group will be looking at microwaves for a long time. I have added a faculty interview — Scroll through the PLAYLIST (#18) to hear Dr. Stiegman’s thoughts on microwave chemistry and his future plans. Enjoy!
