High-throughput screening of crystalline porous materials

 

Chris Rycroft, Harvard University

 

Abstract: Crystalline porous materials, such as zeolites, contain complex networks of void channels that are exploited in many industrial applications, such as for carbon dioxide capture and storage. This talk will develop some geometry-based methods for statistically screening large databases of porous materials, to select candidates that are optimal for a given application.
