Integrated Catalysis
About Our Research
The Center for Integrated Catalysis (CIC) develops the fundamental chemistry needed to prepare synthetic plastics from pools of abundant feedstocks in a single reactor using spatially separated and temporally switchable catalysts. An interdisciplinary team of researchers across the country with expertises in organometallics, nanomaterials, and polymer synthesis aim to mimic biological systems in the development of synthetic chemical catalytic processes. The CIC is sponsored by the Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCI) Program of the Division of Chemistry, National Science Foundation (NSF CHE-2023955).
