Center for Interstellar Catalysis


The Center for Interstellar Catalysis is funded by The Danish National Research Foundation and is hosted by Aarhus University.

The goal of InterCat is to determine whether the molecular building blocks of life can form in interstellar space. We will uncover the degree of chemical complexity attainable via low temperature catalytic reactions on nanoscale interstellar dust grains, thus determining the molecular starting conditions for the origin of life across the universe.
