Development of Theoretical and Computational Methods for Complex Molecular Systems and Application to Catalytic Reactions

Professor Jun-ya HASEGAWA@Associate Professor Kenji Iida@Assistant Professor Min GAO@ Mayumi NISHIDA

To overcome multiple complexities in catalytic mechanisms, we are developing QM/MM method, AIMD method, and analytical methods based on quantum and statistical mechanics. These methods are applied to the catalytic reactions  of organic catalysts, transition-metal reagents, and heterogeneous catalysts.
