Catalysis Modelling Group (CMG)



Congratulations to Alexei Matveev, Bo Li, and Prof. Notker Rösch for making the title page of The Journal of Physical Chemistry A. The results of a newly developed solvation treatment remarkably predict even the position of a missing explicit solvent molecule. We cannot wait to see more applications of 3D RISM to complex chemical problems.
