Welcome to the Goerigk Research Group website. We are part of the Melbourne Centre for Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the School of Chemistry, The University of Melbourne, Australia. Our research revolves around the exciting field of Quantum Chemistry, which is the description of electrons in chemical systems by evoking the laws of Quantum Mechanics. Our interests comprise both the development of new quantum-chemical methods, as well as applications to Organic-, Inorganic-, Physico- or Biochemical problems. We have established a range of national and international collaborations with experimental and other theoretical groups, and our research is supported by various local, national and international funding schemes. Please feel free to explore our website through the links provided in the right-hand sidebar (or at the bottom of the page, depending on your device).

We contributed to a recently published article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Under the leadership of Dr Chris Ritchie from the School of Chemistry, The University of Melbourne, this international collaborative project explored new compounds whose properties can be switched “on” or “off” by visible light opening a route to potentially new technological applications. link to the article
