Developing New Nanoporous Materials for Practical Applications Using Computational Modeling – How Close Is the Dream to Reality?

Nanoporous materials such as zeolite or metal-organic frameworks have many potential applications, including as adsorbents and active components in membranes for chemical separations. The ability to use computational modeling in a genuinely predictive way to develop new nanoporous materials for targeted applications has been a long standing goal (dream?) in the research community. I will talk about how recent advances are bringing this goal within reach and what opportunities and barriers exist with these approaches in the future.
