Title of the invited presentation:
« Computational spectroscopy of ionic liquids: From NMR to fluorescence spectroscopy »
After receiving his PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen (Germany) in 2003, he accepted a postdoctoral position at the University of Vienna (Austria). In 2006, Christian Schröder started his independent research career focusing on the evaluation of the bulk behavior of ionic liquids and the development of polarizable force fields to reproduce experimental spectroscopy data from MHz to THz. In 2012, he finished his habilitation thesis on « Computational Studies of Molecular Ionic Liquids ». From 2013 to 2017, he was appointed as working group leader of the European COST action CM1206 responsible for « Physicochemical Properties of Ionic Liquids and their Modelling ». Christian Schröder’s current research interests are based on computational spectroscopy including NMR, dielectric and THz spectroscopy to study solvation behavior with a particular focus on neoteric solvents such as ionic liquids or their solutions.
