Areas of Interest
Research in the Colón group focuses on the study, discovery, and design of porous materials for targeted applications.
We use and develop molecular modeling tools to: understand fluid behavior in porous confinement, quickly and accurately predict material properties and performance, and study the self-assembly pathways that give rise to promising materials.
Current applications of interest include: water farming, humidity control, ion transport, and gas adsorption and separations.
