About Per-Ola Norrby

Organic chemist specialized on the study of reaction mechanisms, in particular within homogeneous catalysis. Our most commonly used tools are different types of kinetic studies, in particular in competitive mode. We also use molecular modeling, such as quantum chemical calculations based on density functional theory.

A special in-house method is reaction specific force fields, i.e. Q2MM, which can be used to determine all possible pathways for a given chemical reaction.
