Our group applies and develops quantum chemical methods for the study of complex systems. We have pioneered quantum chemical molecular dynamics (QM/MD) simulations of dynamic self-assembly processes far from equilibrium: In particular hot carbon near the melting point can exhibit complex behavior due to its versatility in bond formation, leading to the formation of a large variety of structures including fullerenes, nanotubes, graphenes, and hybrids.

In recent years, we extended our research areas to systems in electronically excited states, solution chemistry and biochemistry. Because these systems contain many atoms and a variety of bond types, such as covalent bonds, hydrogen bonds, and salt bridges, it is important to consider a large number of intermediates that are only a few kcal/mol apart from each other.  To compute physical properties in these systems accurately, we have to consider all of these intermediates. We employ molecular dynamics, integral equation theories, and related methods for the investigating these difficult but interesting fields. Our approaches will play a key role not only for theoretical molecular science, but also in experimental studies, such as the design of novel drugs and bioimaging molecules.
