Our Mission Statement

"Building Effective Catalysts from First Principles: Computational Catalysis and Atomic-Level Synthesis"

 

The mission of LSU's Center for Atomic Level Catalyst Design is to advance:

  • the ability of computational methods to accurately model catalytic reactions on solid surfaces over time and length scales far more representative of realistic conditions than is possible at present, and

  • the tools of materials synthesis/characterization, so that atomically precise catalysts identified by computation can be prepared and characterized unambiguously.

Message From The Director

Jerry Spivey
Director
James Spivey
 

Catalysts are critical to the development of virtually every energy resource imaginable: solar photolysis, syngas conversion, methane activation, and CO2 reduction just to name a few. LSU's Center brings together a team of researchers whose goal is to advance the tools of computational catalysis, materials synthesis, and characterization far beyond the status quo. At present, there are severe limitations in each of these areas: e.g., typically only reactions on ideal catalyst surfaces can be simulated. Such surfaces do not represent real catalysts.

We are attacking this problem.
