QM/MM hybrid descriptions of solutes in complex solvents
(Virtual Single Molecule Spectroscopy in Condensed Phase)

The program CPMD, which implements density functional theory and is well-suited for the use of parallel computers, has been combined with our parallelized molecular mechanics (MM) program [Eichinger 1999a, 1999b] and now allows a highly precise calculation of vibrational spectra of molecules embedded in complex solvents. To compute also UV-VIS spectra and photochemical processes in solution we want to interface also our recently developed OM2/MRCI program with the MM program package.
