The Center for Molecular Modeling is a multidisciplinary research center that is currently composed of about 35 researchers from the Faculties of Sciences (WE05) and Engineering and Architecture (EA17, EA10) of Ghent University.
The Center focuses on frontier research in six major areas - chemical kinetics in nanoporous materials, computational material research on the nanoscale, spectroscopy, many-particle physics, model development and bio- and organic chemistry. Read more

This project is inspired by the quest to design an optimal catalyst for a given process. Nowadays this is more an art than a science. The need for accurate rate constants is crucial to fulfil this task. Molecular modelling has become a ubiquitous tool in many fields of science and engineering, but still the calculation of reaction rates in nanoporous materials is hardly performed due to major methodological bottlenecks.
