Welcome. The Inorganometallic Catalyst Design Center (ICDC) is an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the United States Department of Energy. The ICDC is devoted to computationally-guided discovery of a new class of energy-science-relevant catalytic materials and the underlying structure-function relationships that will guide further catalyst discovery. The catalysts determined in the ICDC are intended to be used for natural gas conversion from alkanes to alcohols.
