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.”

ICDC co-hosts The Minnesota Workshop, ab Initio Modeling in Solid State Chemistry with CRYSTAL.

The University of Minnesota’s Inorganometallic Catalyst Design Center (ICDC), the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, and the Chemical Theory Center (CTC), along with the Theoretical Chemistry Group of the University of Torino, Italy, co-hosted The Minnesota Workshop, ab Initio Modeling in Solid State Chemistry with CRYSTAL, from July 9-14, at Minnesota. CRYSTAL is a computational tool for solid state chemistry and physics. Read more about the workshop and the software, and see photos of the participants on the Department of Chemistry’s web site.
