A two-day intensive molecular modeling workshop presented as a

mixture of lectures and hands-on activities. Computational models

and strategies underlying the current generation of Spartan

software (Spartan’18 Parallel Suite) will be explored, including: molecular structure, properties, reactivity and selectivity; application of graphical models; calculated spectra (NMR, IR/Raman, UV/vis); conformationally flexible molecules; calculating accurate heats of formation; total energies and thermodynamic and kinetic data; finding and verifying equilibrium and transition state geometries; utilizing the Spartan Spectra & Properties Database (SSPD); access to the Protein Databank (PDB) and Cambridge Structural Database (CSD).

EXPECTATIONS
  • Connecting the Schrödinger equation to practical QM methods, and utilization of molecular mechanics.

  • Assessing both “limiting” and practical quantum chemical methods for geometries and reaction energies.

  • Formulation of reliable and practical quantum chemical methods for NMR, IR, Raman and UV/vis spectra.

  • Description and utilization of graphical models in presentation of molecular structure and properties.

  • “Reactant-based” graphical models & transition state models applied to chemical reactivity and selectivity.

  • Combining molecular mechanics and quantum chemical models to address conformation.

  • “Hands-on” experience with Spartan covering Spartan’18’s major capabilities.
