Lichang Wang, Ph.D., is Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and the founder and president of MASIS, Inc. Her research activities encompass the area of molecular modeling, such as developing molecular dynamics simulation tools for complex systems and performing dynamics simulations and electronic structure calculations to study various systems of chemical and energy interests: (a) Transition metal nanoparticles, their toxicity to humans, and their catalytic activities for dehydrogenation of CH4, reduction of O2, direct conversion of coal to liquid fuel, and reactions of ethanol; and (b) Organic dyes for solar cell applications. Details of her research can be found on the website: The ultimate goal of her research activities is to replace as many bench top R & D experiments as possible by molecular modeling in order to achieve a greener, as well as economically better, R & D in Chemical and Energy Industries.

Molecular Dynamics is a two-volume compendium of the ever-growing applications of molecular dynamics simulations to solve a wider range of scientific and engineering challenges. The contents illustrate the rapid progress on molecular dynamics simulations in many fields of science and technology, such as nanotechnology, energy research, and biology, due to the advances of new dynamics theories and the extraordinary power of today's computers. This first book begins with a general description of underlying theories of molecular dynamics simulations and provides extensive coverage of molecular dynamics simulations in nanotechnology and energy. Coverage of this book includes: Recent advances of molecular dynamics theory Formation and evolution of nanoparticles of up to 106 atoms Diffusion and dissociation of gas and liquid molecules on silicon, metal, or metal organic frameworks Conductivity of ionic species in solid oxides Ion solvation in liquid mixtures Nuclear structures
