Dear ACS member,

 

As a theoretical chemistry student, and also at a later stage, I often encounter some difficulties in finding some central place to access important information such as:

* international job opportunities;

* conferences, meetings, workshops;

* latest developments in the field...

 

Today I would like to introduce the , computational chemistry list (also known as simply CCL) which job posting and conference page have proved useful for me during years.

CCL use to be backed by the COMP division of ACS, which you might already have heard about.

 

Besides ACS (of course) there are surely some other interesting places where you can find this kind of information.

Please let us know in the comments if you happen to know a good one

 

Sincerely,

-- Hubert OKADOME VALENCIA

Density functional theory (DFT) is a powerful technique used in theoretical chemistry (and physics) that unfortunately can be quite difficult to explain.

 

A short (yet complete) introduction to DFT is given by Klaus Capelle as a very nice, freely accessible, educational material.

https://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0211443

 

It also happen to be one of my favorite teaching material!

 

Any noteworthy educational contents about theoretical chemistry? Please let us know!

Greeting to all members of ACS community!

I am proud to announce that the theoretical chemistry group page has just been started!

I hope that this could be a great place to share some nice ideas / content.

 

Anyone is welcome to participate, please don't hesitate!

 

Sincerely,
