Chemistry at High Pressure

Pressure is a very sensitive parameter for the modification of the electronic structure of a material. In
this presentation, the theoretical perspective on how pressure can change the nature of the chemical
bond leading to novel magnetic, conducting and even superconducting properties will be presented and discussed through specific examples. The use of state-of-the-art quantum mechanical calculations is crucial to the interpretation of the experimental observation. Comparison of the theoretical predictions and experiments will be illustrated with recent results.
