Wayne State research aims to develop new, more efficient catalytic materials

In order to support the world’s needs to make cheaper and more effective fuels, chemicals, polymers and more, new and more efficient catalytic materials and processes must be developed. A team of researchers, including several from Wayne State University, is tackling this problem with the help of a new grant from the National Science Foundation.

The nearly $1.5 million project, “Computationally Guided Design of Multicomponent Materials for Electrocatalytic Cascade Reactions,” was to Eranda Nikolla, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemical engineering at Wayne State, in collaboration with Michael Janik (Pennsylvania State University), Suljo Linic (University of Michigan) and Will Medlin (University of Colorado).
