Welcome to the Debenedetti research group webpage.


Who we are:

The PGD group uses experiments, molecular simulation, and theory to investigate the relationship between molecular-level interactions and the thermodynamic behavior of substances.  Within this general subject, we focus on the theory and engineering of metastable liquids, network-forming fluids, and glass-forming (amorphous) materials.  Our research attempts to explain macroscopic phenomena using theoretical tools like statistical mechanics, and has applications such as the prevention of hydrate formation in natural gas pipelines and the preservation of biologically active materials.
