Project Title: 
Quantum Chemistry Studies of New Materials Including 2D Monolayers and Catalysis

These researchers are using accurate quantum chemistry calculations to study the properties of novel materials. The types of calculations include DFT methods and molecular dynamics simulations. Current projects include:

  • Studies of metal-organic framework (MOFs) and covalent-organic frameworks (COFs) and freestanding 2D monolayers; these materials may have interesting melting, physical, or optical properties
  • The geometry and dynamics of small clusters
  • High temperature melting materials
  • Single atom catalysts
  • CO2 absorption onto MOFs

Research by this group was featured on the MSI website in May 2015: A Novel Two-Dimensional Copper-Silicon Material.
