Energy Expertise: 

Jordan Schmidt's research uses modern computational tools to examine fundamental problems in chemistry of relevance to energy.  In particular, one project focuses on examining catalytic mechanism of hydrotalcites, a basic heterogeneous catalysis with possible applications to the production of biodiesel.  A second project aims to model and better understand the possible role of zeolitic frameworks (a novel micro-porous substance) in a practical carbon dioxide gas separation system, which may be able to separate out CO2 from other relevant exhaust gases, the first step in CO2 sequestration.​​
