Quantum chemistry on quantum computers

Quantum computing and quantum information processing technology have attracted attention in recently emerging fields. Among many important and fundamental issues in science, solving the Schroedinger equation (SE) of atoms ...

Organic catenane self-assembles in acidic water

(Phys.org)—There are many naturally-occurring supermolecular structures. Among them are catenanes. From the Latin for "chain", a catenane is comprised of two interlocked molecules, and have been found in the mitochondrial ...

The quantum secret to alcohol reactions in space

Chemists have discovered that an 'impossible' reaction at cold temperatures actually occurs with vigour, which could change our understanding of how alcohols are formed and destroyed in space.
