In Silico Chemistry Modelling the Reactions of Heavy Elements – Dr Kirk A. Peterson, Washington State University

Sep 5, 2017engineering and tech, physical sciences

Is it possible for computational modelling to become sufficiently accurate as to replace experiments? This is one of the many questions that Dr Kirk Peterson and his team at Washington State University are working towards answering. As a world-leader in developing Gaussian basis sets for creating increasingly accurate models for the heaviest elements in the Periodic Table, Dr Peterson and his colleagues are finding new approaches for understanding the chemistry and properties of some of the most exotic elements.
