Material properties: finding the free energy of interacting charged defects



A molecular description of matter is the key to understanding and predicting the properties of dense fluids and materials. The latest developments in statistical mechanical theories and computer simulation (Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics) are used by my group to provide a reliable predictive platform for complex fluids and ordered materials at the molecular level. The focus is on the phase equilibria of systems which are of industrial relevance, e. g., mixtures containing hydrogen fluoride (production of refrigerants), aqueous solutions of surfactants (enhanced oil recovery), carbon dioxide capture (CCS from flue gases), and hydrogen bonded liquid crystals (optical devices).
