Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at UCI focuses on biomaterials, micro-structured materials, energy & sustainability factors, nanotechology and nanoengineering and environmental issues. A full program of curriculum and research at UCI focuses on novel systems that produce biofuels and commodity chemicals for synthesis of materials and pharmaceuticals; to processes and systems that enable sustainable energy storage and conversion; to the development of nano- and bio-technologies for discovery and design of novel active molecules, materials and devices with applications in sustainable energy, sensing and human health. Collections include coverage of nanomaterias, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nanodevices, nanocharacterization, packaging materials, materials for advanced energy and fuel cells, biocompatible materials, soft and smart materials, electronic and photonic materials, hybrid materials, green chemistry and multifunctional materials. The materials may include polymers, ceramics, glass, metals, alloys, synthetics, concrete, etc. There is a wide range of information products to support the study of materials science and its many applications in product development and other defined areas. Significant growth in the collections for crystallography and crystal structures is most prominent.
When using Online or Internet Resources, consider Search Engines vs. metasites - evaluate resource - consider domain - .edu, .com, .gov, .org, etc.
Your UCI PhotoID will serve as your copy card for copying and xeroxing. It requires that money be added to it by inserting it in one of the Regenerator machines found throughout the UCI Libraries. Enter a few dollars at a time and add to it when it is depleted. Costs will be debited at the rate of 8 cents per copy or xerox made; 12 cents per page of printing.
Heads up researchers! Beginning FY 2020 (October 2019) Federal funders now require ORCID iD registration for all new fellowship, research training, education, and career development proposals.
(See https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-19-109.html for the original notice.) ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique digital researcher identifiers. These unique identifiers help identify articles written by the same author using various forms of his, her, or their names. This registry also provides a way to link research activities, such as publication and data set creation, to these identifiers. Beyond the federal funding requirements, you’ll be doing the research community a favor by participating – the more the ORCID buy-in, the further along we all get toward the goal of seamless, comprehensive and accurate compilation of individual authors’ works.
