High-performance computing

We have access to excellent high-performance computing facilities for theoretical chemistry studies.

Theoretical modelling is now an essential discipline, and work in this area underpins many aspects of our research, from understanding the most fundamental aspects of electronic structure, elucidating complex reaction mechanisms to helping develop the next generation of functional materials. We have extensive hardware and software capabilities.
