Abstract

This thesis will focus on the use of quantum chemical tools to study chemical phenomena in water, specifically the hydrolysis mechanism of 1-substituted silatranes and the solvent-induced shifts of the π→π* charge transfer state of p-nitroaniline. Assessment of the performance of some of the quantum chemical tools used and the application of a new approach for the treatment of solvent effects will also be presented.
