Gagliardi Group Research

The Gagliardi group develops novel quantum chemical methods and applies them to study phenomena related to sustainable energies, with special focus on chemical systems relevant to catalysis, spectroscopy, photochemistry, and gas separation. We are interested in modeling molecular species, materials, and interfaces. We explore actinide and transactinide chemistry, with the aim of understanding the chemical bonding in molecular species and the processes that govern the formation of actinide-based materials relevant to the spent nuclear fuel reprocessing. We also explore phenomena related to gas separation. Read more about the Gagliardi Group research on the research overview page.

In July 2017, the Minnesota Workshop on ab initio Modeling in Solid State Chemistry with CRYSTAL was held at the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus. For information about the workshop, look here.

Feature Publication


"Methane Oxidation to Methanol Catalyzed by Cu-Oxo Clusters Stabilized in NU-1000 Metal–Organic Framework"

Synopsis: Copper oxide clusters synthesized via atomic layer deposition on the nodes of the metal–organic framework (MOF) NU-1000 are active for oxidation of methane to methanol under mild reaction conditions.
