Surface Processes

Atomic and macro-scale studies of surface processes: towards a mechanistic understanding of surface reactivity and radionuclide Binding Mechanisms

This interdisciplinary, cross-university project will inform regulatory bodies, have a profound impact on the development of the new geological disposal facility safety case.

Project date: 
Sunday, April 1, 2012 to Thursday, March 31, 2016

Computational chemistry is now widely applicable in a variety of biological, materials and chemical research areas. Computer simulation of the dynamics and electronic structures of chemical reactions and complex molecular systems helps us to understand these processes and provide a valuable complement to experiment.
