Vianello and Kovacevic Hit the Top 5

RBI scientists Dr. Boris Kovacevic and Dr. Robert Vianello in the Group for Quantum Organic Chemistry have published, together with the late Professor Zvonimir Maksić, a revival work titled "Advances in Determining the Absolute Proton Affinities of Neutral Organic Molecules in the Gas Phase and Their Interpretation: A Theoretical Account" in the journal with the highest impact factor in chemistry Chemical Reviews (IF = 40 197) holding a fifth position on the list of top-ranked journals according to that criteria.

The Group for Quantum Organic Chemistry (GQOC) is concerned with the application of state-of-the-art theoretical approaches to important problems in organic chemistry and biochemistry. Particular focus is devoted to understanding of the structure and function of proteins and the properties and design of functional molecules such as (super) acids and bases.

GQOC is equipped with numerous stand-alone workstations, one 20-processor computing cluster acquired from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and one 50-processor cluster purchased through an FP6 project. In addition to the local resources, the members of GQOC make extensive use of the Croatian National Grid Infrastructure.
