Gagliardi group presents at 7th Annual OpenMolcas Developers’ Workshop!

The 7th Annual OpenMolcas Developers’ Workshop took place on June 12-14, 2019 at the University of Minnesota. The workshop consisted of a mixture of technical and scientific reports from Molcas developers, scientific perspectives from Molcas users, and discussion sessions. Many Gagliardi group members presented, including Carlo Alberto Gaggioli, Matthew Hermes, Riddhish Pandharkar, Thais Scott, and Prachi Sharma. The workshop was sponsored by Molcas and by the Inorganometallic Catalyst Design Center. It was hosted by the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute.

Gagliardi group participates in ICDC collaborative work.

The collaborative work of several members of the University of Minnesota’s Inorganometallic Catalyst Design Center (ICDC), an article titled “C–H Bond Activation on Bimetallic Two-Atom Co-M Oxide Clusters Deposited on Zr-Based MOF Nodes: Effects of Doping at the Molecular Level,” was recently featured in the journal <em>ACS Catalysis.

NMGC receives a four-year continuation of its funding!

The Nanoporous Materials Genome Center (NMGC), a multi-institution collaboration led by the University of Minnesota, received a four-year continuation of its funding, effective September 1, 2017. Laura is the founding Director of NMGC and continues as a member of the Center.

Gagliardi group attends the New Challenges in Heterogeneous Catalysis conference.

On January 29-31, Laura, grad student, Matt Simons, and postdocs, Jenny Vitillo and Jingyun Ye attended the New Challenges in Heterogeneous Catalysis conference at KAUST.Laura gave a talk on “Computationally Guided Discovery of Metal-Decorated Metal–Organic Frameworks Active for Catalysis,” and Jingyun won one of the prizes at the poster competition with a poster titled “Computational Study of MOF-Supported Metal Catalysts for Ethylene Dimerization.”
