Priority Programme Control of London Dispersion Interactions in Molecular Chemistry (SPP 1807)
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
This Priority Programme aims at a thorough understanding and quantification of London dispersion interactions in molecular systems. These and related short-range electron correlation effects are the driving force for molecular aggregation that play a key role in thermodynamics, molecular recognition, chemical selectivity through transition-state stabilisation, protein folding, enzyme catalysis and other phenonema. While dispersion interactions help rationalise many common phenonema such as well-established ?-? interactions, the related ?-? systems have been examined much less and the concept of ?-? attraction is in its infancy.

A primary goal of this programme is the development of chemical design principles that utilises dispersion interactions in the construction of novel molecular structures and in the design of chemical reactions. This can only be achieved through a tight interplay between synthesis, spectroscopy, and theory to quantitatively determine dispersion interactions in chemical (model) systems. The experimental and theoretical capabilities have reached a stage that allows a clear-cut analysis of dispersion interactions. There are many challenges to understand and to utilise dispersion forces for the preparation of novel molecular structures, to elucidate the transition from molecular to bulk properties, and catalysis through fine tuning of dispersion-energy donors for optimising the interactions of ligands and substrates.
