Emerging Trends in Computational Catalysis


Computational Catalysis is concerned with method of theoretical chemistry, computer programs, to calculate structure and properties of molecules and solids. Due to its high degree of accuracy, now-a-days it is widely used in different fields like designing of new drugs and materials, complementing the information obtained by chemical experiments, and predicting the hitherto unobserved chemical phenomena. Some highly research-oriented topics of this domain to be emphasized are




Homogeneous catalysis

Asymmetric catalysis

Small molecules catalysis


Environmental catalysis

Organo-metallic catalyst

Structured catalyst

Theoretical modeling of catalytic reactions

Curing Cancer: Treatments to Keep an Eye On


Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by unusual cell growth. These cells can invade different tissues of the body, leading to serious health problems.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Trusted Source, cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease.

Is there a cure for cancer? If so, how close are we? To answer these questions, it’s important to understand the difference between a cure and remission:

·         A cure eliminates all traces of cancer from the body and ensures it won’t come back.

·         Remission means there are few to no signs of cancer in the body.

·         Complete remission means there aren’t any detectable signs of symptoms of cancer.


Covid-19 vaccine update

The world, keenly waiting for a vaccine to defeat the coronavirus disease (Covid-19), might just be able to turn a corner with Oxford University’s candidate showing promising results. This could signal relief for ravaged economies and overworked healthcare systems in major nations battling the viral contagion that has claimed 1.15 million lives.

According to British and Swedish drugmaker AstraZeneca Plc, the drug AZD1222 has shown immune response in older and younger adults, with reduced adversarial effects among the elderly. Officials from the vaccine developer have said that it is ‘encouraging to see immunogenicity responses were similar between older and younger adults and that reactogenicity was lower in older adults, where the Covid-19 disease severity is higher’.

“The results further build the body of evidence for the safety and immunogenicity of AZD1222,” an AstraZeneca spokesperson said.

Battling COVID-19 Using Genomics

Genomic sequencing is a valuable tool when fighting infectious disease that provides information about viral structure, antigenicity and virulence, and transmission patterns. During the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers have used whole genome sequencing to rapidly characterize this novel virus, track its spread, and reveal secrets that may limit its effects.

·         Analyzes SARS-CoV-2 cell entry mechanisms

·         Tracks how the virus enters and spreads within a population

·         Uncovers what determines viral virulence

·         Reveals how antibodies to the common cold might help fight COVID-19
