Thonhauser group receives funding to investigate MOFs for carbon capture and catalysis

Prof. ThonhauserProf. Thonhauser receives funding in the amount of $332,200.00 from the Department of Energy (DOE) to investigate metal organic framework (MOF) materials for carbon capture and catalysis. During this project, Prof. Thonhauser's research group will focus on first-principles electronic-structure simulations to model these MOF materials and investigate their fundamental physical properties. The project is part of a larger effort funded by the DOE with $1,080,000.00, bringing together a theorist from WFU (Prof. Timo Thonhauser) and experimentalists from UT Dallas (Prof. Yves Chabal) and Rutgers (Dr. Jing Li).
