Modeling structure and properties of transition metal complexes


Project Description

This project is focused on the characterization of transition metal based catalysts using quantum mechanics approaches. The applicant will have to correlate the experimental behavior of families of catalysts based on a transition metal to the structure of the ligand coordinated to the metal using molecular descriptors.​​​
