42 U.S. Code § 16313 - Catalysis research program
Catalysis research program
(b) ComponentsThe program shall include efforts to—
enable catalyst design using combinations of experimental and mechanistic methodologies coupled with computational modeling of catalytic reactions at the molecular level;
develop techniques for high throughput synthesis, assay, and characterization at nanometer and subnanometer scales in-situ under actual operating conditions;
synthesize catalysts with specific site architectures;
conduct research on the use of precious metals for catalysis; and
(c) Duties of the Office of ScienceIn carrying out the program, the Director of the Office of Science shall—
support both individual investigators and multidisciplinary teams of investigators to pioneer new approaches in catalytic design;
develop, plan, construct, acquire, share, or operate special equipment or facilities for the use of investigators in collaboration with national user facilities, such as nanoscience and engineering centers;
support technology transfer activities to benefit industry and other users of catalysis science and engineering; and
(d) AssessmentNot later than 3 years after August 8, 2005, the Secretary shall enter into an arrangement with the National Academy of Sciences to—
(1) review the catalysis program to measure—
progress towards developing new fuels for energy production and material fabrication processes; and
submit to Congress a report describing the results of the review.
