Using Molecular Modeling Simulations to Study and Understand the Role of Flexible Porous Materials to Maximize Energy Storage

Energy storage is one of the leading technological challenges of this generation. Porous materials have been studied for their great potential, especially in gas storage. A new class of flexible porous materials, soft porous coordination polymers (SPCPs), presents new unique opportunities to exploit their flexibility to maximize storage and delivery of gases. The student in this project will use molecular modeling simulations to study and understand the role that flexibility in porous materials can play in energy storage applications.
