Integration of Computation and Experiment for Accelerated Materials Discovery

Lead Research Organisation: University of Liverpool
Department Name: Chemistry

Abstract

Society faces major challenges that require disruptive new materials solutions. For example, there is a worldwide demand for materials for sustainable energy applications, such as safer new battery technologies or the efficient capture and utilization of solar energy. This project will develop an integrated approach to designing, synthesizing and evaluating new functional materials, which will be developed across organic and inorganic solids, and also hybrids that contain both organic and inorganic modules in a single solid.

The UK is well placed to boost its knowledge economy by discovering breakthrough functional materials, but there is intense global completion. Success, and long-term competitiveness, is critically dependent on developing improved capability to create such materials. All technologically advanced nations have programmes that address this challenge, exemplified by the $100 million of initial funding for the US Materials Genome Initiative.

The traditional approach to building functional materials, where the properties arise from the placement of the atoms, can be contrasted with large-scale engineering. In engineering, the underpinning Newtonian physics is understood to the point that complex structures, such as bridges, can be constructed with millimetre precision. By contrast, the engineering of functional materials relies on a much less perfect understanding of the relationship between structure and function at the atomic level, and a still limited capability to achieve atomic level precision in synthesis. Hence, the failure rate in new materials synthesis is enormous compared with large-scale engineering, and this requires large numbers of researchers to drive success, placing the UK at a competitive disadvantage compared to larger countries. The current difficulty of materials design at the atomic level also leads to cultural barriers: in building a bridge, the design team would work closely with the engineering construction team throughout the process. By contrast, the direct, day-to-day integration of theory and synthesis to identify new materials is not common practice, despite impressive advances in the ability of computation to tackle more complex systems. This is a fundamental challenge in materials research.

This Programme Grant will tackle the challenge by delivering the daily working-level integration of computation and experiment to discover new materials, driven by a closely interacting team of specialists in structure and property prediction, measurement and materials synthesis. Key to this will be unique methods developed by our team that led to recent landmark publications in Science and Nature. We are therefore internationally well placed to deliver this timely vision.

Our approach will enable discovery of functional materials on a much faster timescale. It will have broad scope, because we will develop it across materials types with a range of targeted properties. It will have disruptive impact because it uses chemical understanding and experiment in tandem with calculations that directly exploit chemical knowledge. In the longer term, the approach will enable a wide range of academic and industrial communities in chemistry and also in physics and engineering, where there is often a keener understanding of the properties required for applications, to design better materials. This approach will lead to new materials, such as battery electrolytes, materials for information storage, and photocatalysts for solar energy conversion, that are important societal and commercial targets in their own right.

We will exploit discoveries and share the approach with our commercial partners via the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry and the new Materials Innovation Factory, a £68 million UK capital investment in state-of-the-art materials research facilities for both academic and industrial users. Industry and the Universities commit 55% of the project cost.

Planned Impact

The need for accelerated approaches to identify materials with enhanced performance is internationally recognised. New functional materials can transform many other disciplines and application areas in science and engineering, such as healthcare, information storage, catalysis, transport, energy storage, use and generation. This produces two main types of impact from the project.

The new functional materials generated can have impacts in specific areas: for example, a new solid electrolyte for a lithium battery to replace a potentially flammable liquid electrolyte. We will exploit these materials with our industrial partners, with academics working at higher technology readiness levels (e.g., in materials, device and manufacturing engineering) and with a wider industrial network.

The project approach itself will have broader, long-term impact. The modular, integrated approach that accelerates materials discovery has the potential to identify valuable functional materials beyond our initial targets. It may also open up new types of material not readily accessed by less integrated approaches. This will generate impact over multiple sectors by helping researchers working across the full spectrum of materials types, their functions and applications, to address the current and unpredictable future needs of society. This breadth of impact arises from the project focus on both organic and inorganic materials, and hybrids, and its integration of computation and experiment. A narrower programme would impact fewer communities. Industry in particular frames problems around function, rather than specific materials, and hence needs capability that spans materials types.

Day-one partners Johnson Matthey, NPL, Exxon, NSG, Unilever, and Ceres Power will benefit from specific technical developments, for example in complex multicomponent systems, and from new thermoelectric, ion transporting, catalytic, multiferroic, electroceramic, transparent conducting and photocatalytic materials. They commit £1.35 M in support, demonstrating industry interest in the project vision. They have strong networks to raise the technology readiness level (TRL) of project outputs. These leading innovators see the potential of the integrated PG approach to accelerate materials discovery and development to meet ever more challenging performance needs: new manufacturing methods allow more advanced materials to be integrated into product design at scale, so the project vision for accelerated discovery of such materials could radically change industry strategies.

We have a successful strategy for dissemination to large and small UK companies working in cognate areas (e.g., BP, Datalase, ACAL Energy) by the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry, formed by the Liverpool investigators with Manchester, Bolton and STFC Daresbury in 2009. The £68 M Materials Innovation Factory (open Q2 2016) will allow daily interaction of PG researchers with industry, and enable engagement with the research community by hosting visits from new partner groups engaged through extensive profile-raising activity.

Society will benefit through enhanced energy, safety and resource efficiency, and reduced environmental impacts associated with higher performance materials, enhancing quality of life. The new approach will enable replacements to be sought for materials reliant for their function on rare, toxic, or hard-to-access elements, thereby removing risk from many sectors of society and industry and creating commercial opportunities. The training and mentoring of a cohort of at least 34 researchers expert in the integrated approach will be a competitive advantage to the UK, and a benefit to society, because these workers will apply the methods in industry and a range of academic disciplines. A summer school and project symposia will further disseminate training benefits.

Description Structure - property - function maps have been developed and used to prioritise synthesis of organic molecular solids for the first time, and has been published in Nature. A new concept for the identification of stable solids has been developed, and this probe structure approach used to computationally prioritise synthesis based purely on composition. This has been published in Nature. A new method for the prediction of crystal structures has been developed, and the associated codes ported to supercomputers at the Hartree Centre, and used in Faraday Institution projects. These advances are significant steps towards realising the overall vision of the project, as they allow experimental researchers to prioritise their work based on computational input. Computational guidance has been key to the development of best-in-class materials for solar hydrogen generation, reported in Nature Chemistry, and for the separation of hydrogen isotopes, reported in Science. By combining experiment-led design with computational understanding, we identified a phonon glass-electron crystal oxide for thermoelectric applications. New types of lithium ion conductor have been identified. Experiment-led programmes are also yielding new concepts, such as nanostructuring of solid oxide fuel cell cathodes as reported in Nature Energy, new chemistry for stable, low energy gas separation processes and new routes to multifunctional (transparent conducting, both p-type and In-free) materials of importance for both energy conservation and harvesting and information technology. These concepts are being computationally understood in order to use them predictively.

Description Progress in developing the capability to accelerate discovery in the project has been presented at internal research prioritisation meetings at major UK and multinational companies, including the 20 participants at the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry Industrial Steering Group meeting in June 2017, September 2018 and November 2019, spanning SMEs to large UK and multinational corporates. This presentation highlighted advances in computational, robotic and data-driven approaches pioneered in this project to a cross-sector industry group and has, together with the broad range of presentations given by the project team, produced a large number of follow-on discussions and programmes with companies. For example, a series of meetings to disseminate the approach have also been held with senior industrial research staff at two major companies. Both series of meetings generated interest in starting major new internal research directions for the organisations, resulting in two funded projects to accelerate internal research priorities using the project approach, and further follow-up involving visits at CTO and CIO level to gauge the potential for further and broader uptake. Work on formaldehyde capture has resulted in the formation of a spinout company. This work won first prize in the RSC Emerging Technologies competition. A patent has been filed by a company on porous materials. Capability and materials developed under the project informed and shaped our leadership of the Royal Society's policy briefing to UK government on the utilisation of carbon dioxide. New solid oxide fuel cell materials emerging from the project are being evaluated with a commercial partner, and patents have been filed. The new computational approaches developed in the project are being ported to the Hartree Centre supercomputers for industrial use in collaboration with the Centre. These approaches are now used in a Faraday Institution project.

Description A perovskite structure comprises a first element X, strontium, iron, cobalt, oxygen and tungsten; where the first element X is barium and/or a lanthanide and wherein the structure comprises a region of single perovskite and a region of double perovskite. The structure may be included in an electrode for a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). A method of forming a perovskite structure comprises mixing a first element X, strontium, iron, cobalt, oxygen and tungsten; heating the mixture to a first temperature for a first period of time to form a single perovskite; and heating the mixture to a second temperature for a second period of time to form a double perovskite; where the first element X is barium and/or a lanthanide. Preferably, the first temperature is in the range 650ºC to 750ºC, and the second temperature is in the range 850ºC to 1000ºC. The molar percentage of tungsten may be in the range of 5-10%. Preferably, the structure has the formula (Ba1-xSrx)(Co1-yFey)WbOc, where both x and y are independently in the range 0.1 to 0.9; a+b is equal to 1; and c is in the range 2 to 3.

Company Name CAGECAPTURE LIMITED 
Description Formaldehyde is often released as a pollutant from building materials such as paint and plasterboard, as well as many other household products. It is believed to cause various health problems and is classified as a Group 1 human carcinogen by WHO. The current leading technology for removing formaldehyde is activated carbon adsorption, which has low capture capacity and poor selectivity. A new cage molecule solid was designed and synthesised, that act like a 'cage prison' and can capture low concentration pollutants using a combination of chemical and physical adsorption. The patented technology has been proven to efficiently capture the most common indoor air pollutant, formaldehyde, at both high and low levels and even in humid conditions. CageCapture Ltd (CCL, https://cagecapture.com/), co-founded by the inventors, was formed in December 2019 to commercialise this new cage-based material. This technology was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry's First Prize in their 2016 Emerging Technologies Competition. In 2019, CageCapture Ltd has been awarded a total of £298,754 funding via Innovate UK with matched funding from the University's Enterprise Investment Fund, through the Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research (ICURe) 'follow on funding' competition. The Innovate UK funding will be used to develop an in-house formaldehyde testing facility to validate the new technology and to explore other applications for the new technology including different pollutants. 
Year Established 2019 
Impact To date, CageCapture has demonstrated that the Cage molecule can be formulated into industrially compatible coating processes for existing air filter production lines, providing an immediate performance uplift, with minimal integration. Materials have already been released to early customers as part of market testing. The resultant test data from several leading players in the chemical and filtration sectors has been positive, with strong expressions of interest for Joint Development Programmes and sample requests.

Company Name Porous Liquid Technologies Ltd 
Description Porous liquids-liquids with permanent holes in them-are a fundamentally new and counterintuitive state of matter, first described in 2015 in a joint Nature paper co-authored by researchers at Queen's University of Belfast and the University of Liverpool. This attracted much interest from academic teams and the media worldwide. Porous Liquid Technologies Ltd (PLT) was formed in July 2017 by the inventors to commercialise these materials (http://www.porousliquidtechnologies.com). The first porous liquids were hard to scale up, involving both complex chemistry and toxic solvents. Since 2015, we have solved both of those problems. Our most recent liquids have porosities of around 20%; a huge increase compared to our first-generation materials, opening up a range of applications. PLT has five directors - Prof. Stuart James (Belfast), Prof. Andrew Cooper (Liverpool), Dr Barry Murrer (ex Johnson Matthey), Mr David Moore (QUBIS) and Mr David James. 
Year Established 2017 
Impact The company is in discussion with a number of potential commercial partners in sectors spanning oil and gas, catalysis, and food and drink.
