Aspires to be a chemist with a strong computational and theoretical background to understand and investigate molecular excited-state processes, non-covalent interaction assisted phenomena such as crystallization, catalysis etc., efficient charge transport capable molecules and other fundamental quantized phenomena in molecules
Various exciting excited state phenomena such as singlet fission, aggregate induced shifts, thermally activated delayed fluorescense, are few among the vast topic.
Excited State Dynamics
Understanding the non-covalent interactions is important in crystallography and catalytic chemistry for acquiring the maximum out of the molecules.
The emerging field of charge transport in organic molecules probed with hopping theory, transient localization theory and band theory.
Reaction mechanism is the soul of organic chemistry. Understanding the way of synthesis can help in tuning and emerging new synthetic possibilities.
