烽火台”系列学术讲座第七十八期——Towards accurate and efficient theoretical modelling in catalysis

报告题目:Towards accurate and efficient theoretical modelling in catalysis

报告人: Prof. Xin Xu

报告人单位:Fudan University

报告时间:Dec.27 (Thursday)3:00pm-5:00pm

报告地点:B-518, Lee Shau Kee Building of Science and Technology

邀请人: Prof. Xuefei Xu 

Abstract:

This talk summarizes briefly the recent efforts of Xin Xu’s group in methodology development for molecular modeling in catalysis. It consists of mainly three parts, namely, (1) how to model the catalysts; (2) how to obtain accurate energetics; and (3) how to conduct microkinetic analysis. Challenges in the field will be discussed.

Bio:

Xin Xu received his Doctoral Degree in Theoretical Chemistry from Xiamen University, China, in 1991. After a postdoctoral stay at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Academia Sinica, he was appointed as an associated professor in 1993 and was promoted to a full professor in 1995 in the department of chemistry, Xiamen University. He was also affiliated to the State Key Lab of Physical Chemistry on Solid Surfaces (PCOSS), China, where he acted as deputy director from 1996 to 2003. He was a visiting professor at Kyoto University, Japan, Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, France, and a visiting associate at California Institute of Technology, USA. From 2006, he was appointed as Lu-Jia-Xi Chair-professor of Xiamen University. From 2010, he moved to Fudan University, where he currently is the Chang-Jiang chair professor. His research interests involve development of density functionals and linear scaling quantum chemical methods, modeling of catalytic reaction mechanisms on the solid surfaces and in solutions.
