A personality change for a catalyst

Monday, March 7, 2011 - 10:30 in Physics & Chemistry

For more than 40 years, an ambition of catalysis science has been to persuade homogeneous catalysts to behave more like heterogeneous catalysts, while still maintaining their activity and exquisite selectivity. Professor Christopher W. Jones of the Georgia Institute of Technology discussed the state of current research on a class of coordination complex (metal-salen) catalysts, and how his research team is making progress in anchoring them to solid support materials. His talk on January 31 was part of the Frontiers in Catalysis Science and Engineering Seminar Series. The seminars, held at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, allow experts to share results of studies and novel ideas.
