    Charge-transfer workshop wrap-up

    Dr Rika Kobayashi, NCI Academic Consultant in Computational ChemistryEarlier this month, I presented at the CECAM workshop: “Charge Transfer Modeling in Chemistry: new methods and solutions for a long-standing problem” attended by researchers from all over the world.Charge-transfer (CT) interactions have long been known to be an important chemical phenomenon e.g. governing photosynthetic processes of plants and bacteria, controlling molecular switches and photovoltaic devices or the functioning of organic dyes. However, these systems are still not satisfactorily modelled or understood ... Read More
