The Interfacial, Transport, and Separation Processes thematic areas supports research related to interfacial phenomena, mass transport phenomena, separation science, and phase equilibrium thermodynamics. Research in these areas supports various aspects of engineering technology with major impact on chemical and material processing, as well as bioprocess engineering. Research in this program also contributes to the division emphasis on basic knowledge impacting on physicochemical hazardous waste treatment and avoidance. The Interfacial, Transport, and Thermodynamics Program provides support for new theories and approaches determining the thermodynamic properties of fluids and fluid mixtures in biological and other fluids with complex molecules. Separations research (usually handled by the Separations and Purifications Processes Program) is directed at many areas with special emphasis on bioprocessing and all forms of chromatographic, membrane, and special affinity separations.

In furtherance of the President's Management Agenda, in Fiscal Year 2005, NSF has identified 23 programs that will offer proposers the option to utilize Grants.gov to prepare and submit proposals. Grants.gov provides a single Government-wide portal for finding and applying for Federal grants online.
Proposers may opt to submit proposals in response to this Program Description via Grants.gov or via the NSF FastLane system.
In determining which method to utilize in the electronic preparation and submission of the proposal, please note the following:
All collaborative proposals must be submitted via the NSF FastLane system. This includes collaborative proposals submitted: by one organization (and which includes one or more subawards); or as separate submissions from multiple organizations.
Proposers are advised that collaborative proposals submitted in response to this Program Description via Grants.gov will be requested to be withdrawn and proposers will need to resubmit these proposals via FastLane. (Chapter II, Section D.3 of the Grant Proposal Guide provides additional information on collaborative proposals.)
For full proposals submitted via FastLane: standard Grant Proposal Guidelines apply.
For full proposals submitted via Grants.gov: NSF Grants.gov Application Guide; A Guide for the Preparation and Submission of NSF Applications via Grants.gov Guidelines apply. (Note: The NSF Grants.gov Application Guide is available on the Grants.gov website and on the NSF website at: http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/docs/grantsgovguide.pdf)
