For full proposals submitted via FastLane:

standard
Grant Proposal Guidelines

apply.

For full proposals submitted via Grants.gov:
NSF Gr
ants.gov Application Guide; A Guide for
the Preparation and Submission of NSF Applications via Grants.gov Guidelines apply (Note:
The NSF Grants.gov Application Guide is available on the Grants.gov website and on the NSF

)

Please be advised that the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG)
includes revised guidelines to implement the mentoring provi
sions of the America
COMPETES Act (ACA) (Pub. L. No. 110
-
69, Aug. 9, 2007.) As specified in the ACA, each
proposal that requests funding to support postdoctoral researchers must include a
description of the mentoring activities that will be provided for su
ch individuals. Proposals
that do not comply with this requirement will be returned without review (see the PAPP
Guide Part I: Grant Proposal Guide Chapter II for further information about the
implementation of this new requirement).

SYNOPSIS


The
Catalysis and Biocatalysis

program primarily supports fundamental and applied research
on:



Kinetics and mechanisms of impor
tant catalyzed chemical reactions as they relate to the
production of chemicals, fuels, and specialized materials



Fundamental aspects of reactive deposition and processing for thin film materials



Characterization of chemical and biochemical phenomena occurring at or near solid
surfaces and interfaces



Kinetic modeling and theory of heterogeneous, homogeneous, and biocatalysis



Electrocatalytic processes having engineering significance or commercial
potential

This program promotes multidisciplinary research in all of the above areas.

Typical research topics include:



Synthesis and characterization of novel catalytic structures from the atomic through the
nanoscale for chemical conversions



Mechanisms an
d kinetics of reactions at solid surfaces and at interfaces (gas
-
solid, liquid
-
solid including aqueous
-
solid)



Ab initio and semiempirical kinetic theory and dynamic simulation of complex reactions



Utilization of catalytic materials in sensors, electronic d
evices, coatings; incorporation of
components from the nano to micron scale



Catalyst design for reaction engineering of chemical, photo
-
, electro
-
, and bio
-
catalytic
processes



Environmentally beneficial chemical process alternatives



Catalytic conversion of biorenewables



Utilization of new catalysts for producing nanomaterials



Ultra selective reactions and catalysts for fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and specialty
chemical products

The duration of unsolicited awards is generally one
to three years.


The average annual award
size for the program is $100,000.


Small equipment proposals of less than $100,000 will also be
considered and may be submitted during these windows.


Any proposal received outside the
announced dates will be retur
ned without review.

The duration of CAREER awards is five years.


The submission deadline for Engineering
CAREER proposals is in July every year.

.

Proposals for Conferences, Workshops, and Supplements may be submitted at any time,
but must
be discussed with the program director before submission
.

Grants for Rapid Response Research (RAPID) a
nd EArly
-
concept Grants for Exploratory
Research (EAGER) replace the SGER program.


Please note that proposals of these types must
be discussed with the program director before submission
.

PAPPG download, available bel
ow.


Please refer to the Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG), January
2009, (NSF 09
