Function is key to development of new materials and chemistry. To design a material for a specific function, one needs to account for interaction, energetics, and dynamics to simulate the process. Modern computational tools and hardware now allow us to design materials, predict structures, and simulate function for some well-defined systems, indicating the great potential of materials design for complex systems in the near future. In this talk, I will discuss our recent efforts in predicting structures for atomically precise, ligand-protected gold nanoclusters; understanding the structure and function of electrolytes in a model supercapacitor; designing and simulating one-atom-thin membrane for energy-efficient gas separation. In each of the studies, one will see a close interplay between computation and experiment, demonstrating that computation or an experiment in silico is now a valuable tool to drive advances in materials chemistry.
De-en Jiang (江德恩）is an associate professor in Department of Chemistry, University of California, Riverside. He received his B.S. degree in 1997 and M.S. degree in 2000 from Peking University and a Ph.D. degree in 2005 from UCLA, all in chemistry. He joined Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) first as a postdoctoral research associate and then became a research staff member in 2006. He joined Department of Chemistry, University of California, Riverside in July 2014. His research focuses on applying state-of-the-art computational methods to important chemical systems and energy-relevant problems. He has published over 250 peer-reviewed papers (e.g., Science, Nat. Mater., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem.), which have been cited over 13450 times (from Google Scholar; H-index 66) and delivered over 170 invited conference talks and seminars. In 2009, he won ORNL’s Early Career Award for scientific achievement. In 2010, he won the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).In 2012, he was awarded Kavli Fellow from the National Academy of Science, USA.
