PEESE researchers recently co-authored an article in Science Advances. The title of the paper is “In silico discovery of metal-organic frameworks for precombustion CO2 capture using a genetic algorithm.” It worth noting that one of the co-authors, Prof. J. Fraser Stoddart, was award the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry early this month, one week before the paper was officially published online.
