Rational Catalyst Design II

Thursday, October 20, 2011: 3:15 PM
200 C (Minneapolis Convention Center)

Rational catalyst design has the potential to speed up the discovery of new materials with tailored properties and eventually eliminate trial-and-error testing. The identification of relevant descriptors, screening methods, and the development of structure-property relationships are just a few examples that illustrate these efforts. This session welcomes contributions that describe experimental or theoretical methods that aim to design catalytic materials with improved activity, selectivity, stability, or poison resistance.
