The first observation of gravitational waves and electromagnetic emission from a neutron star merger in August 2017 highlighted the importance of these events for element formation through the rapid neutron capture process. We describe simulations of neutron star mergers with an advanced treatment of weak interactions, which are important to obtain reliable predictions of the composition of the outflows from these events. Our simulation data are post-processed by nuclear network calculations to obtain the abundance pattern in the ejecta.
