Jordan Schmidt

Associate Professor


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.​​
