Article features Truhlar's work on improving chemical computation

Professor Donald Truhlar, one of the top computational and theoretical chemists in the country, is featured on the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory website. The article is titled, Fast company. High performance computing accelerates scientific advances.

Truhlar talks about one of the complex problems that his group is tackling, which involves the computational treatment of charge transfer and charge transport in photo activated systems. He is creating methods to account for more complex electronic behaviors that exceed the accuracy of existing computational methods. Read the article at
