The call to decarbonize the chemical and energy industries requires the reduction and eventual elimination of fossil carbon resources and the adoption of radically new approaches for producing chemicals and storing electric power harvested from the wind and sun. 


To respond to this call, the central research mission of CD4DC is to discover and develop reticular metal-organic framework materials (MOFs) as catalysts for the decarbonization energy transition and to optimize the key catalytic reactions involved. This will be accomplished by a symbiotic combination of synthesis, catalysis and kinetics, computational modeling and active
