ChemistryHub.org Phase II SBIR

April, 2016

The team at Illinois Rocstar is happy to announce phase II SBIR funding by the US Department of Energy for a new initiative in Computational Chemistry, chemistryhub.org.


In this project, a new design, research, and educational HUB (web-based community site using existing open-source software) to enhance the rate of breakthroughs in complex materials chemistry and design was established and will continue to undergo development within Illinois Rocstar. Behind the web interface will lie a network of chemistry and materials modeling simulation tools for use by a community of users cultivated during the project. Most importantly, a new, existing Illinois Rocstar open-source multiphysics application coupling toolkit (IMPACT) will be leveraged to construct and facilitate assembly of important multiphysics tools for use on the site. The resulting community, centralized interface for chemistry and materials design and research, multiphysics tools, and standardized data formats will set the stage for the next advances in chemistry and materials multiphysics modeling and research.
