Applied Theoretical Chemistry, Structure and Reactivity of molecules
We study the structure and reactivity problems of real life molecules,
clusters and solids using theoretical techniques ranging
from the simplest of molecular orbital methods to the
sophisticated electronic structure theory depending on the system
at hand and the questions that are to be answered.
A constant attempt is made by us to find common threads between
problems in one area to another, for example, between organic
and organometallic chemistry, amongst the chemistry of
various main group elements, between polymorphs of elements and
their compounds and so on.
