The Laboratory for Integrative Materials Discovery (i.e., the IMD Lab) was established by Prof. Dequan Xiao at UNH in 2013. The goal of the IMD Lab is to discover optimal and sustainable materials (i.e., catalysts, molecular drugs, and polymers) by combining various theoretical/computational methods and experimental methods (e.g., via collaborations).
We are committed to the following missions: 1. To reveal the fundamental physical chemistry such as energy transfer, molecular vibrations, and catalysis for chemical materials, and to seek optimal materials using inverse molecular design methods. 2. To train the next-generation chemists with integrative materials dicovery skills. 3. To provide excellent intellectual services to academia and industry. 4. To provide green and sustainable materials solutions to the world.
