We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) themed collection Quantum Theory: The Challenge of Transition Metal Complexes is now online and free to access until May 2021.
This collection aims at promoting the power of quantum theory at deciphering electronic structure, bonding, nuclear relaxation, (photo-) chemical reactivity, catalytic and enzymatic activities of transition metal complexes.
By exploring the intimacy of matter, particularly complex in coordination chemistry, quantum theory does not only provide accurate structural understanding but also in-depth knowledge of the processes that control primary functions, either at the molecular scale or in specific environments.
Guest Edited by Professor Chantal Daniel, Professor Leticia González and Professor Frank Neese, this collection contributes to stimulating discussions in the quest to find fundamental answers at the frontier between hard and life sciences involving transition metal complexes.
