Analysis of Functional Compounds
We have been involved in the study of various compounds ranging from (bio-)molecules over liquids to molecules on surfaces. Recent projects in collaboration with other groups have, for example, concerned the investigation of electronic communication in dirhenium complexes, photoinduced proton-coupled electron transfer, and the development of refinement procedures for improved agreement of computational models and experimental data.
