The University of Minnesota is getting federal grant money from the U.S. Department of Energy to fund two nationwide centers.
The $13.1 million will be used over the next five years to fund centers at the Department of Chemistry in the university’s College of Science and Engineering.
The Nanoporous Materials Genome Center will get $8.1 million over five years and will be used to develop mew materials that capture greenhouse gases and improve chemical processes.
The Center for the Study or Charge Transfer and Charge Transport in Photoactivated Systems will get $5 million over five years and will be used to develop methods and tools for increasing the efficiency of solar energy conversion.
The centers will begin research this September.
