Our Center covers research in most areas of catalysis. The emphasis is to develop highly synergistic groups in order to combine all aspects of catalysis into one team focused on developing new catalytic systems for unique applications. The intent is to facilitate interactions to be able to combine aspects of homogeneous, heterogeneous, and enzymatic catalysis together with new nanotechnologies for the design of catalytic systems with unique selectivity for specific processes. Emphasis is placed on addressing catalytic needs in several areas of current importance in society, including problems in:

  • Energy storage (liquid fuels from photocatalysis) and generation (fuel cells)
  • Environmental remediation (air and water pollution)
  • Green chemistry (chemical production with minimum waste)
  • Synthesis of specialty chemicals (pharmaceuticals)
