Felipe Fantuzzi, PhD

Welcome to the personal page of Dr. Felipe Fantuzzi. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Germany (hosts: Prof. Dr. Holger Braunschweig; Prof. Dr. Bernd Engels). My research is focused on the investigation of the electronic structure, bonding situation, and mechanistic aspects of novel main-group and organometallic compounds using distinct computational quantum chemistry approaches, including DFT, multiconfigurational and multireference methods, Valence Bond Theory, and modern approaches for chemical analysis and bonding. Motivation for this research arises from the fundamental interest in novel molecular species, and much emphasis lies with the elucidation of their detailed electronic structures and reactivity patterns, thus disclosing potential applications in many fields, such as renewable energy, metal and metal-free catalysis, small-molecule activation, bioactive compounds, bioinorganic chemistry and biomimetic compounds, materials science and optoelectronic devices, and astrochemistry.
