A study of modern quantum chemical methods followed by a discussion of their application in the field of Conducting Organic Polymers (COPs), with a view to modelling the cathodic half-cell of a Poly(3,4- Ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) cathode in an AlCl3-1-Ethyl-3-Methylimidazolium Chloride (EMImCl) ionic liquid electrolyte. In the literature, the most common combination of Hybrid-Density Functional Theory (DFT) and polarised moderate basis set has been widely and effectively applied to COPs. However, diffuse functions and dispersion corrections must be considered in the presence of anions and intermolecular interactions. A complete definition of these components is well suited to determine several essential parameters such as molecular shape, oligomer bandgap, and energy for systems containing numerous chains and chloroaluminate anions. Range- separated hybrid functionals, on the other hand, may be more suited for assessing electron transport parameters in very long chains. The ability to visualise charge distribution and the interaction between charged Poly (3,4- Ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) and the active species is the clearest benefit of DFT to this system, as it will help to explain the specific capacity, voltage, and charge/discharge characteristics insights that may help identify further improvements. Density Functional Theory (DFT) investigations were used to investigate the mechanism and sources of selectivity in a silver-catalyzed domino cyclization to spiro-indolines. Trifluoroacetic Acid (TFA) controls both solvent de-aromatization and hydro-amination via a network of hydrogen bond interactions, which is discovered to play a critical role in the effective realisation of the silver-catalyzed reaction. Most significantly, our findings showed that collaboration between Tri-Fluoroacetic Acid (TFA) and Silver Trifluoro methane sulfonate (AgOTf) is critical for the hydro-amination phase. This work demonstrates the capacity to accurately adjust the selectivity of asymmetric synthesis through additive tuning. The primary goal of this work is to create a computational tool capable of reproducing and completing experimental data gathered on a Constant Volume cyclic combustion (CV2) is bench accessible. The major problem is that, regardless of how excellent the models or mesh refinement are, describing the boundary and beginning conditions for the simulation of a single cycle independent of prior cycles demands an unrealistic amount and precision of experimental data. Furthermore, high-fidelity modelling of all prior cycles is too expensive. The first step in simulating numerous cycles is to create a modelling framework that is compatible with coarse meshes and has a tolerable processing cost. As a result of the large spectrum of unresolved scales in the presence of so many coupled physical systems, various modelling factors are included. This study provides specific modelling advancements for turbulent combustion in the presence of residual burned gases, and the database takes into consideration the self-similar character of the thermochemical properties. A comprehensive time- function for the entrance and output mass flow rates is also included, as it is a new blending function for the wall heat fluxes. The numerical results' sensitivity to critical modelling factors such as injected air mass air, expelled mass out, and the wall heat losses parameter. In the instance of propane-air combustion, a quantitative comparison of the findings and computational data is conducted using the pressure and heat flow signals. For the first cycle, the chamber pressure and temperature of air are 1 bar and 307K, respectively. The computed pressure profiles match the experimental data fairly well. The computed pressure maxima for the first three reactive cycles are 17.4, 13.1, and 14.4 bars, respectively. The values found for the experimental pressure peaks are 17.8, 14 and 14.6 bars, demonstrating the validity of the modelling technique. The numerical findings are then utilised to characterise the flow during one cycle's sequential phases, namely injection, combustion, and exhaust. Finally, the numerical pressure signal and wall heat flux derived from a ten-cycle simulation are compared to experimental data. Variability in CV2 was identified, but more research is needed. We use Computational Singular Perturbation (CSP) theory to create an adaptive time-integration technique for stiff chemistry that is based on a local, projection-based, Reduced Order Model (ROM) that is free of rapid time- scales. Its design allows Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) to be used as low-cost surrogates for the local projection basis, which is a state function, to reduce computing costs without damaging the method's geometrical and physical base. In fact, the solver uses the synthetic basis rather than the more expensive on-the-fly computed basis to determine the local Slow Invariant Manifold (SIM) and the projection matrix, i.e. the eigenvectors of the Jacobian matrix of the chemical source term. The predicted, i.e. non-stiff, chemical source term is then explicitly integrated.

By training a series of ANNs to forecast the projection basis vectors given the local chemical composition in a hydrogen/air homogeneous reactor issue, we investigate the viability of the ANN-accelerated CSP solver. To improve the smoothness of the basis vectors and minimise reconstruction error, we propose a limited Jacobian formulation that reduces state heterogeneity owing to the existence of temperature as well as chemical species and takes derivatives while ensuring absolute enthalpy conservation. The test scenario demonstrates the resilience of this ANN technique, as a result of the comparatively modest requirements for basis precision in comparison to the necessary integration accuracy.


This numerical research project focused on the development of a complete computational framework for the collaborative numerical experimental study of flow in the CV2 device. The created LES tool incorporates a novel combustion model, a database that takes into account the thermochemical characteristics' self-similarity, a precise time-function for the intake and exit mass flow rates, and a new model for the wall heat fluxes. Proving the utility of computational chemistry in the goal of speeding the development of batteries using next-generation conducting polymer cathodes. Finally, hybrid DFT is an acceptable method for studying COPs, with B3LYP 6-31G (d) being employed in the bulk of investigations. Greater cost in the setting of chains of more than a few polymer units, correlated wave-function approaches and coupled-cluster theory have prohibitively large computing costs, let alone any attempt to describe solids. Polarization functions should be included at all times. When modelling intermolecular interactions, such as those between AlCl4 and PEDOT, diffuse functions and dispersion corrections must be used.
