Specific field Theoretical Chemistry

Research Areas

Prof. Rösch’s research focuses on the development and application of quantum chemistry methods to explain a wide range of chemical and physical questions. His work involves investigating complex systems, such as metal clusters, adsorbates on metal and oxide surfaces and in zeolite cavities, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic reaction systems and actinide complexation and sorption. In addition, he has been developing the ParaGauss density functional program since 1994. This uses relativistic density functional methods and embedding processes for systems on surfaces and in solution.
