Jan Dillen
Research Summary:
We develop and apply computational methods to study molecular systems and their properties. Research projects usually concentrate on solving questions like how? and why?, rather than trying to make a statement like yes or no. The development efforts concentrate of classical force field methodologies but quantum mechanics plays an important role in our research.

Catharine Esterhuysen
Research Summary:
My research involves investigating the structural characteristics of molecules, either experimentally, by single crystal X-ray diffraction, or computationally, using quantum mechanical and force field calculations. Since the structure of a molecule has a direct relationship to its physical properties, this allows me to analyse and elucidate interesting physical phenomena, in particular the study of the porosity of various compounds.
