Computational Chemistry serves as a complement to experimental chemistry where the tools are limited. Using computational programs to solve advanced problems is widely used in the design and analysis of for example new molecules, surfaces, drugs and materials. This book will present novel innovations in the field, with real-life examples of where computational technologies serves as an indispensible tool.
Prof Ponnadurai Ramasami, CSci, CChem, FRSC, FICCE, MMast, received his PhD in Physical Chemistry and became full Professor in 2013. He leads the Computational Chemistry Group, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science at the University of Mauritius. The research group focuses on the use of computational methods to solve chemistry and interdisciplinary problems. The group is particularly interested to collaborate with experimentalists and try to use computational methods to complement experimental research. He has already published 260 research papers in peer-reviewed journals and he has edited several books. He is the chairman of the annual Virtual Conference on Chemistry and its Applications.
