  Penn Team Devises Easier Way to Make 'Bijels,' a Complex New Form of Liquid Matter
 
Kathleen Stebe and Daeyeon Lee, of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and Martin Haase, a postdoctoral researcher who works in both of their labs, have developed an easier way to make bicontinuous interfacially jammed emulsion gel, or bijel. This type of emulsion is eyed as a kind of liquid conveyor belt for continuous chemical reactions.
