Computer simulations predicted structure of gold cluster that chops carbon dioxide

A doctoral dissertation taking place today at University of Jyväskylä, Finland, shows successful computer simulations that were able to predict the atom-precise structure of a cluster comprising 11 gold atoms. Later, the compound was observed to speed up decomposition of carbon dioxide. In his research M.Sc. Sami Kaappa used computer simulations to study properties of nanosized particles.
