SDSC announces international chemistry collaboration



EurekAlert !, 26 janvier 2015


 The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego is a partner in a new international collaboration to develop computational models and software for simulations of bifunctional catalysis, which is of high relevance for biomass conversion to liquid fuels and raw materials used in the chemical industry.

The research is co-funded by a three-year award from the National Science Foundation's Divisions of Chemistry (CHE) and Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI), and the French National Research Agency (ANR), with the combined award valued at almost $815,000 (EUR 706,000.) Three institutions are involved in the collaboration: SDSC and the University of Delaware in the U.S., and the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon in France, bringing together research teams with complementary expertise.
