报告摘要:Chemistry, as indicated by the spelling itself (Chem is try), is an experimental science. As the fast development of computational hardware and software, one question to all the theoretical chemist is that: if it is possible to carry out an experiment in the computer. In this talk, I will review our current critical breakthrough of multiscale simulation Technique (MST) in extending the simulation time scale (advanced sampling method) and size scale (force field development) to closely simulating the experimental condition. With the help of MST, we can enable computational synthesis, computational characterization and finally computational predictions, leading to the concept of Virtual Computational Laboratory (VCL). The successful applications of VCL include: revealing the grotthuss mechanism of oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), distinguishing the chemisorbed CO2 as the first reactive intermediate in CO2 reduction (CO2RR), a panorama of CO2RR to sixteen hydrocarbon productions and interface reactions and evolution of all-solid lithium battery. With the new insight form simulation, we predict new catalysis with 50 times increase in ORR and 100 times increase in CO2RR, which has been experimentally synthesized by closely working with our experimental collaborator.
