Climbing Over Energy Barriers: A New Paradigm for Accelerating Kinetics

Christine Orme | 19-DR-001

Executive Summary

The goal of this project is to validate a new paradigm for accelerating the kinetics of chemical reactions that uses stochastic electric noise fields to mimic the effect of high temperature. Increasing and controlling reaction rates is fundamental to synthetic design and will enhance all programs that make materials, including advanced materials and manufacturing and other areas of national and global importance.
