… elementary chemical reaction steps occur on time scales from femto- to nanoseconds, and since solvent reorganization also occurs on such time scales, reaction dynamics are intimately intermingled with solvent dynamics. RESOLV faces the challenges that arise from the dynamical aspects of solvation (focus on the solute) and ‘solvent shaping’ (focus on the solvent) and will proceed to address key issues using time-resolved techniques. Our ambitious goal is to tackle complex reacting systems in solution at the molecular level.  In this area, RESOLV will lay the foundation for developing…
