Catalysts by design: The power of theory

Sharon Hammes-Schiffer

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Theoretical design of effective catalysts, in conjunction with the identification of guiding design principles and strategies, is a Holy Grail in Chemistry. Although further progress will benefit from additional computational advances, theoretical studies have already enhanced the design of molecular electrocatalysts, photocatalysts, and enzymes.
