The methods of quantum mechanics are applied to the study of a wide variety of both organic and inorganic compounds. Molecular structure and properties are predicted on the basis of theoretical calculations. Due to the recent developments in computer technology, the precision of the calculation is often competitive with (and sometimes superior to) experimental measurements. Three categories of molecules are studied: 1. Transition metal ...
Analytical Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The department consists of two research groups. The main subject of the first (Analytical chemistry) is chemometrics, the application of mathematical and statistical methods to chemical data. This includes both fundamental and more applied work. The fundamental work involves for instance the development of more robust neural networks, variable selection in conjunction with partial least squares or wavelet signal processing that can be applied ...

Coordination chemistry aims to study the effect of ligand geometry and nature on the central metal ions. These are transition metals (3d, 4d or 5d), lanthanides (4f) and actinides (5f). The symmetry of coordination mainly determines the electronic structure of the metal ions and influences in this way the spectroscopic, electrochemical, thermodynamic and magnetic properties of the complexes. A lot of applications of coordination compounds are ...
