topDFT Project

The recently launched topDFT project will look at Density Functional Theory (DFT) and develop new theoretical approaches to density-functional methods.

Awarded to the School of Chemistry at the University of Nottingham this 5 year ERC consolidator grant will allow the research to exploit the topology of the electron density, with accurate simulations of molecular and solid state systems done through computer programs enabling a more reliable result otherwise created with density-functional methods.

The impact created and benefits to society in areas such as medicine and manufacturing appear to be a keep element to this new research with chemical synthesis, nano-science and materials design being the key components.
