Description

Argonne?s high throughput facility provides highly automated and parallel approaches to material and materials chemistry development. The facility allows scientists to synthesize and screen large numbers of compounds and optimize their reaction or process conditions much more rapidly than the conventional approach, thereby reducing the time and cost for material development. The facility consists of a robotic platform with solid and liquid handling and dispensing capabilities focused on accelerating the discovery and optimization of new materials. A screening pressure reactor for catalyst screening, materials treatments, and process optimization at temperatures up to 400�C and pressures up to 3000 psig under a wide range of gas compositions. Analytical equipment configured for high-throughput analyses including a X-ray diffractometer, LC-MS and a GC-MS. Computer software to facilitate experimental design, data mining and data evaluation. Current applications are in catalysis, energy storage, fuel cells, artificial photosynthesis, gas separation and storage, and nanoscale materials.
