Limited Submission Announcement

This funding opportunity supports basic research in chemical and materials sciences to understand and control processes and properties of materials and molecules containing rare earth elements (REE) and platinum group elements (PGE). Key aspects of basic research in this field include understanding the role of REE and PGE in the functionality of materials and molecular systems; discovering innovative strategies to enhance their availability; establishing new approaches for more efficient separation from naturally occurring and recycled materials; and identifying alternatives to reduce/eliminate their use in energy-relevant technologies.
Applications are requested that address one or more of the following scientific Research Topics:
  1. Physical and Chemical Properties
  2. Geological Systems
  3. Separation Science
  4. Design and Synthesis of Materials or Molecules

´╗┐Please note that the requirements for this submission
