Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Jian-zhi Hu
Fundamental research in beyond Lithium ion battery has been limited and an in-situ NMR method to probe transient electrochemical reactions has yet to be developed. We propose to develop unique in situ NMR capabilities to study the detailed redox...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: David Heldebrant
Carbon dioxide is one of the most simple and abundant molecules on earth as it plays a critical role in biological lifecycles as a feedstock for plants to chemically store energy in hydrocarbons and conversely a byproduct of hydrocarbon combustion....
Lead Institution: University of Vermont
Principal Investigator: Aimee Classen
Soil carbon (C) feedbacks to the atmosphere remain one of the greatest areas of uncertainty in future climate predictions, largely due to an inadequate representation of three key factors in ecosystem models -- soil organic matter (SOM) chemistry,...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Garry Buchko
Biomineralization is the process used by living organism to produce minerals with properties not always found in their equivalent inorganically produced counterparts. In vertebrates, mineralized tissues such as bone, cementum, dentin and enamel all...

We propose to use NMR in combination with computational modeling, to study the conversion of soluble tetrahedral aluminum (Al) species to octahedrally coordinated Al-bearing mineral precipitates under strongly basic conditions typical of high-level...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Mariefel Olarte
This proposal aims to identify the active species from peracetic acid that are involved in the oxidative depolymerization of lignin. Results from this study will inform other efforts to identify alternative oxidants and catalysts that can make the...
