Title of the conference: Tuning C-C vs. C-H selectivities in zeolites – Insights into a complex reaction network from DFT calculations
Professor Notker Rösch heads the Catalysis Modelling Group at the Institute of High-Performance Computing in Singapore since 2012, after serving as professor of theoretical chemistry at TechnischeUniversitätMünchensince 1980 and finally as founding director of the Catalysis Research Center. After completing his doctorate at TUM, he began developing and applying density functional methods as postdoc at MIT and Cornell University. He co-authored 500 research papers and book chapters dealing with relativistic DFT, metal clusters, surface science, actinide environmental chemistry, biophysical chemistry, as well as homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.
