Description

In Silico Materials Chemistry

Abstract:

Function is key to development of new materials and chemistry. To design a material for a specific function, one needs to account for interaction, energetics, and dynamics to simulate the process. Modern computational software and hardware now allow us to design materials, predict structures, and simulate function for some well-defined systems, indicating the great potential of materials design for complex systems in the near future. In this talk, I will discuss our recent efforts in understanding the atomically precise, ligand-protected gold nanoclusters; controlling the phase stability of 2D materials by chemical functionalization; elucidating the identity of nitrogen dopants in carbon materials and their role in capacitive energy storage. In each of the studies, one will see a close interplay between computation and experiment, demonstrating that computation or an experiment in silico is now a valuable tool to drive advances in materials chemistry.

This event is co-hosted by CSIRO and the Department of Chemical Engineering, Monash University
