Beratan Group



Beratan’s group develops and uses the tools of theoretical chemistry to understand how function emerges in biological and man-made molecular structures.  The group also employs the understanding that emerges from their studies to design high-performance synthetic systems.  Applications are targeted in molecular biophysics, physical organic and inorganic chemistry, energy science, drug discovery, molecular library design, and opto-electronics.  Because of the strong links to experimental science, many studies in Beratan's group are carried out in close collaboration with experimental groups.
