Project description

Force fields are the most efficient molecular models to simulate guest molecules in a nanoporous framework. The aim of this project is to advance

the theoretical tools for the construction of more accurate force fields, and to use these models to study the guest molecules in metal-organic frameworks and template molecules in

the pre-nucleation phase of zeolite synthesis.
