Title：The Power of Density Functional Theory in Catalysis
Abstract：Density Functional Theory (DFT) based electronic structure calculations can be viewed as a cornerstone in modern Materials Science, Chemistry and Physics. Catalysts play a critical role in these energy conversion and storage technologies via enhancement of reacting rate, efficiency, selectivity of the relative chemical transformations. DFT can assist in understanding their mechanisms, improving material designs and predicting their performance. In this talk, I will focus on the importance of metal-support interactions and hydrogen spillover mechanisms in some catalytic reactions such as ammonia synthesis, biomass conversion to biofuel and hydrogen storage materials design.
