Conductor-like Screening Model for Real Solvents (COSMO-RS)

when 15 August 2022 - 19 August 2022

duration 1 week
credits 2 EC

Conductor-like Screening Model for Real Solvents (COSMO-RS) combines quantum chemistry with statistical thermodynamics to calculate condensed-phase thermodynamic properties of organic (and inorganic) molecules. COSMO-RS can be used for example in liquid-liquid extraction calculations, to find activity coefficients of compounds in different mixtures or to calculate Henry’s law coefficients. The course includes an introduction to the COSMO-RS theory, but the focus is on learning to calculate the various properties starting from the quantum chemical calculations to create input files for the property calculations.

Course leader

Academy of Finland Postdoctoral Researcher Noora Hyttinen

Target group

Bachelor in a science field.

Course aim

Students will learn basic principles of COnductor-like Screening MOdel for Real Solvents (COSMO-RS). After the course, students are able to calculate thermodynamic properties of organic molecules using COSMO-RS theory.
