Welcome to the Center for Molecular Modeling

Take a look at the thesis subjects for the academic year 2017-2018 here

The Center for Molecular Modeling 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 & bio- and organic chemistry. Our multidisciplinary research team is currently composed of about 35 researchers from the Faculties of Sciences (WE05) and Engineering and Architecture (EA17, EA08) of Ghent University.

Highlighted Chemical Society Reviews contribution showcases the potential of metal-organic and covalent organic frameworks as single-site heterogeneous catalysts
While metal-organic and covalent organic frameworks are still in their infancy compared to zeolites, their versatility and nearly unlimited tunability endow these materials with an enormous potential as heterogeneous catalysts. In a recent review,... more
