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: 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: Jian-zhi Hu
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: John Loring
The manner in which soil organic carbon (SOC) binds to and reacts with mineral surfaces affects SOC (bio)degradation, SOC mobility, soil wettability, mineral dissolution, and the bioavailability of essential elements and contaminants. While SOC-...
Lead Institution: Washington University in St. Louis
Principal Investigator: Marcus Foston
The last decade has witnessed the tremendous power of systems biology and multi-omics tools to characterize and understand complex biological systems, computational tools to integrate and leverage multi-omics datasets to improve systems-level...
