Previous Regular Research Support (Apoio Regular à Pesquisa) granted to the Applicant's research group were essential for the research activities, which experienced significant quantitative and qualitative improvement in recent years. The present Proposal is essential to keep this trajectory as it will adequate the computational infrastructure of the group and also provide important funds for maintenance of the group's computer cluster and also for travelling, i.e., participation in conferences and visits to collaborators. The scientific goals comprise a number of methodological developments and relevant applications, namely: (i) investigate the transient anion state spectra and electron-induced fragmentation pathways of molecules with potential for application in cancer treatment (radiosensitizers); (ii) similar investigations for molecules of biological and technological potential interest (e.g. quinones and their derivatives); (iii) methodological developments to study transient anion states in water environment (application to biomolecules); (iv) methodological developments to study chirality-sensitive effects in electron scattering (application to camphor derivatives); (v) computational simulation of positronic molecules and positron-bonded molecules; (vi) development of theoretical approaches to address positronium-molecule scattering; (vii) methodological developments to study solvated positronium atoms and positrons.
