Thinking theoretically to design new molecules is the best part of chemistry. Of course, things do not always go as originally planned, but that can actually result in the discovery of interesting phenomena. Getting to the root cause of why something happened can lead to the discovery of new fundamental principles. I believe the fun of creating new things lies in this type of research process. Come and join us and you’ll see!
