FOCUSING ENERGY RESEARCH

The UD-led Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) develops innovative technologies to efficiently convert biomass, such as trees and grasses, into chemicals and fuels.

UD scientists develop new theory to help improve catalysis research

December 1, 2017

A new theory by researchers at the University of Delaware-led Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) will help bring greater accuracy and focus to molecular science research, with the potential for far-reaching impact across multiple industries.

The findings— reported by UD graduate student researchers Joshua Lansford and Alexander Mironenko with support from CCEI director Dionisios Vlachos—establish predictive capability for the behavior of molecules called adsorbates. Adsorption is a process by which molecules of gas, liquid or dissolved solids adhere to a surface, including metals such as iron, copper, nickel and titanium.
