CHE 598 Seminar: The Pursuit of Free Energies and Free Energy Relationships
Workshop / Seminar
WSU Pullman - Center for Undergraduate Education (CUE)

Chemical reactions lie at the heart of processes designed to meet our growing energy and material needs. The first step towards designing and optimizing chemical reactions involves identification of underlying mechanisms and quantification of rates. Quantum chemistry methods along with theories such as transition state theory (TST) are indispensable for this purpose and have played a pivotal role in elucidating mechanisms in recent decades.
