Abstract

[...] How I wished I could simply zoom in with a giant magnifying glass to see what was happening during that reaction!
As I learned later, such a giant magnifying glass exists – computers. Electrons, the particles that determine chemical reactivity and behaviour, are quantum mechanical so the task for the computer is to approximately solve the Schroedinger equation. Armed with clever approximations, an understanding of the underlying physics and a powerful computer, we can simulate what goes on in our fl ask. And not only that. We can predict chemical phenomena like the geometry of a molecule, the transition states during a reaction, spectra or crystal structures.
