Computational Molecular Science

BU-CSS_InsidePageBanner_MolSci
For many applications in nano science, continuum descriptions fail to capture the important processes underlying function as molecular level detail is often crucial. From electronic rearrangements during chemical bond breaking and formation underlying catalyst function or enzyme activity, to photo excited dynamics and nonadiabatic relaxation at the heart of photochemical processes important for solar energy capture and transformation, and strongly correlated electronic motions that determine exotic electronic and magnetic properties of new low dimensional materials, advanced molecular simulation methodologies offer powerful predictive capability.
