Project Title: 
Modeling Catalysis and Gas Separation in Metal Organic Frameworks, Actinide Chemistry, and Photovoltaic Materials

This group investigates chemical systems and materials containing transition metals and heavier atoms like lanthanides and actinides with quantum chemical methods. Over the years, these researchers have acquired an expertise in developing and applying quantum chemical methods for the study of such systems.

This work is strongly connected with experimental work in the sense that it both inspire possible future experiments and it confirms and/or refines existing experimental results. MSI resources are used for the following chemical- and material-related challenges:

  • Actinide and lanthanide chemistry
  • Catalysis in metal organic frameworks
  • Gas separation in porous materials
  • Molecular photocatalysts
  • Modeling charge and exciton dynamics in solar cell material
  • Discovery of new magnetic materials for quantum computing
  • Development of novel multireference methods

The group employs various software packages available through MSI.

This group's work was featured on the MSI website in October 2016: A New Method for Creating a Catalyst on a Metal-Organic Framework.
