Congratulations to Dr. Marc Obst!

Congratulations to Dr. Ljiljana Pavlovic

Congratulations to Ljiljana Pavlovic who successfully defended her PhD thesis on 21.08.20! She has now started as a Postdoc in the project CATCHME funded by the Research Council of Norway (Project leader K. Hopmann). The focus of CATCHME is on identifying molecules that can bind CO2 and promote C-CO2 bond formation, with the ultimate goal to develop asymmetric carboxylation reactions. DFT and experimental methods will be used in order to investigate the behaviour of CO2 during C-CO2 bond formations in the presence of trapping molecules.

 

New accepted manuscript!

New accepted manuscript!

Congratulations to CHOCO members Anders & Kathrin and their collaborators, Luca Frediani & Luigi Genovese & their groups, to this just accepted JCTC article on polarizabilities and multiwavelets. Less CO2-oriented than our usual work, but we have hidden a CO2 molecule inside – can you find it?
(Btw – also this article is open access thanks to the agreement between UiT and ACS!)
