The $7,000 funds will be used for the following purposes:
- Experimental materials and equipment which include a) chemicals and gases required for the tests, b) necessary parts and consumables for the reaction system, and c) a tube furnace for the reactor ($5,000)
- Technical fees for characterizing catalysts and products ($1,000)
- Travel expenses for disseminating the results in regional or national conferences to attract collaborations and investments ($1,000)
We are very grateful that the Office of the Vice President for Research at the University of South Carolina is kindly providing dollar-for-dollar matched funding from Experiment.com to boost our project. As a result, we are seeking to raise $3,500 of the necessary $7,000. In the end, every dollar you contribute is really worth two!
