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 40 researchers from the Faculties of Sciences (WE05) and Engineering and Architecture (EA17, EA08) of Ghent University.

Machine learning predicts mechanical properties of nanoporous materials
While metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) form promising materials to extract water from the air in the desert, to store dangerous gases or to power hydrogen-based cars, they are often very fragile. In collaboration with the University of Cambridge,... more
