Theoretical Chemistry

Lund University


At the division of Theoretical Chemistry we study statistical thermodynamics, suspension dynamics, and quantum chemistry. While we have a strong focus on fundamental research and model development, our methods have been applied on a diverse range of systems such as clay, cement, sea water, dental environments, wood fibers, sand and dairy products!

We also have a well equipped experimental lab for preparing protein samples and conducting physical chemistry measurements.
