Theoretical Kinetic Studies

The research group on theoretical kinetics investigates a wide range of chemical reactions of importance in the atmosphere, predicting reaction rates and product distributions using quantum chemical and theoretical kinetic methodologies. The use of theoretical methods allows the investigation of elementary reactions that are difficult to study experimentally, making this approach highly complementary to experimental work, and the theory-based results can be readily incorporated in atmospheric models.
