Research in the TuttleLab is focused on the concept of reducing molecular search spaces. The reduction of molecular search spaces involves the use of computational methodology to inform, focus and drive the direction of molecular research. The group works in close collaboration with experimental colleagues to ensure the results from our design work are able to be directly implemented in a practical laboratory. The process of reducing molecular search spaces involves three phases: (1) rationalising and understanding existing systems; (2) isolating the governing molecular processes; and (3) predicting new systems with enhanced/desirable properties and reactivities. A variety of different methods are used in pursuit of this goal, including ab initio, DFT, semi-empirical, MM, coarse grain and hybrid QM/MM methodologies.
News From the Lab
The Tuttle Lab decided it would be a good idea to have a day of festivities to celebrate all their hard work and effort throughout the year. The day started off around midday where we played intense games of beer pong as doubles and singles along with some drinks. We had a table at Viva […]
Thirteen members of the Tuttle lab battled it out over five weeks to find out who would be crowned the Great Tuttle Bake Off Champion. Three, two, one …Bake! In round one Sarah Dyer was made star baker with her take on the classic Malteser tray bake. Other entries on the day were a chilli […]
Welcome to Lauren Barrie, Luca Bartek, Sarah Dyer & Victoria Laing who are all undertaking projects within the group over the coming months as part of their undergraduate studies.
As part of a European International Training Network, named SMARTNET, Ivan and Ines meet the other colleagues and supervisors in the network every 6 months. This October, the meeting was held in the TU Delft facilities. All the project leaders (including Dr. Tell Tuttle) met on Monday afternoon and then a great welcoming dinner took place […]
