Structural, energetic, dynamical, and reactivity properties of molecules in zeolitic frameworks

Project: Research

Project Details


The study of the structural, energetic, and dynamical properties of small guest molecules in zeolites is achieved through the use of statistical mechanics methods. The study of reactivity properties is completed by quantum mechanical calculations. Presently, these simulations are applied to the physisorption of water, oxygen, nitrogen or benzene and to the isomerization of butene in various zeolites.
