Summer School: Electronic Structure and Spectroscopy of Transition Metal Complexes
Date: /3/4/5/6/7/8/9/ September 2017, Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Europe

Characterisation of transition metal complexes relies extensively on high-level electronic structure theory and advanced spectroscopic methods. Most cutting-edge research in all fields of transition metal science, ranging from inorganic chemistry to biochemistry and from catalysis to energy research is driven by the combination of molecular theory and spectroscopy. The goal of this summer school is to provide fundamental knowledge and practical skills to incorporate this powerful combination in own research. The school addresses graduate students, post-doctoral scientists, and senior researchers with either experimental (synthetic/spectroscopic) or theoretical background.
- theoretical and computational chemistry
- ligand field theory
- spectroscopy (UV/Vis, IR/Raman, XAS/XES, EPR, MCD, Mössbauer, etc)
- practical sessions consisting of tutorials and hands-on computational exercises (ORCA quantum chemistry program)
