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.
September 6, 2017. The ICDC is hosting their annual All Hands Meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota on September 10 – 12, 2017. View meeting details.
August 2, 2017. ICDC researcher Varinia Bernales was awarded the postdoctoral travel award from the Minnesota Section of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
