Collaboration with Other Energy Frontier Research Centers
In addition to its partner institutions, the Institute for Atom-Efficient Chemical Transformations (IACT) also shares collaborative relationships with other Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs). The list below provides links to each of these collaborating EFRCs and information about the nature of the collaboration.
Center for Direct Catalytic Conversion of Biomass to Biofuels (C3Bio)
The collaboration with this EFRC, located at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, focuses on understanding of the fundamental building blocks of biomolecules and how the nature of these materials effects their ultimate catalytic conversions.
Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI)
The collaboration with this EFRC, located at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, focuses on synthesis of site-specific catalysis and development of in situ cells for synchrotron studies.
Center for Atomic-level Catalyst Design (CALC-D)
The collaboration with this EFRC, located at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, focuses on developing and implementing new computational tools for simulating catalyst surfaces and reactivity.
Fluid Interface Reactions, Structures and Transport (FIRST)
The collaboration with this EFRC, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, focuses on understanding the interactions of solid-liquid interfaces important to the liquid phase conversion of biomass.
