Theoretical chemistry developments: from electronic structure to simulations

PCCP would like to introduce this week’s themed issue that explores theoretical chemistry, ranging from electronic structure theory to molecular dynamics simulations. ‘Theoretical chemistry developments: from electronic structure to simulations‘ aims to give an overview of developments in the field and give a voice to the younger researchers who are shaping the future through the development of theoretical tools that will dominate the field of quantum chemistry.

The guest editors of the issue are Barbara Kirchner (University of Bonn) and Frank Neese (Max-Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion) and their editorial can be viewed for free untill  30th July 2015, along with this selection of articles:

Simulations of room temperature ionic liquids: from polarizable to coarse-grained force fields, Mathieu Salanne, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2015,17, 14270-14279, DOI: 10.1039/C4CP05550K

Towards an ab initio description of the optical spectra of light-harvesting antennae: application to the CP29 complex of photosystem II, Sandro Jurinovich, Lucas Viani, Ingrid G. Prandi, Thomas Renger and Benedetta Mennucci, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2015,17, 14405-14416, DOI: 10.1039/C4CP05647G

How simple is too simple? Computational perspective on importance of second-shell environment for metal-ion selectivity, Ondrej Gutten and Lubomír Rulíšek, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2015,17, 14393-14404, DOI: 10.1039/C4CP04876H
