Title: “New Hypotheses Governing Complex Matter from Theory”

Abstract: “A significant number of the most powerful synthetic reactions and materials known today involve compounds that are complex – large in size, complicated in structure, and often exhibiting bewildering flexibility & variability. In many cases, virtually nothing is known or understood about how structure leads to function. Our group is at the forefront of expanding the reach of theory towards these systems. Together with dozens of leading research groups around the world, we elucidate mysteries, create predictability from erraticism, and ultimately bring forth hypotheses that govern complex matter. Our research program spans organic, inorganic, and materials chemistry, from homogeneous catalysis to aqueous metal clusters to solid-state oxide semiconductors. In this seminar, the latest discoveries into the mechanisms and stereoselectivities of Lewis-Base catalyzed reactions, as well as group additive types methods for predicting the stabilities of inorganic aqueous complexes will be presented.”
