Division of Physical Chemistry

Home » Professional Networks » Division of Physical Chemistry

Physical chemistry is quantitative chemistry.
It is active at the overlap of physics, biology, medicine and chemistry.

It is one of the traditional sub-disciplines of chemistry and is concerned with the
application of the
concepts and theories of physics to the
analysis of the chemical properties and the
reactive behaviour of matter

The EuChemS Division of Physical Chemistry
coordinates European activities in the field of Physical Chemistry regarding:

  • Scientific Exchange: conferences and workshops
  • Research: Interdisciplinary work
  • Education

Mission of the Division of Physical Chemistry:

  • Coordination, initiation of vivid communication, and collaboration between the Divisions of Physical Chemistry of the respective European Chemical Societies.
  • Targeting cutting edge R&D-topics that can be best tackled by Physical Chemistry as e.g. energy conversion and storage, material resource saving chemical processes and manufacturing strategies.
  • Coordinating transdisciplinary research discussion where Physical Chemistry can play a pivotal role.
  • Quality assurance support of physical chemical education and teaching at European universities.
  • Scientific exchange particularly by conferences and workshops at budget-priced venues (e.g. the biannual EuChemS Physical Chemistry Conferences – ECPC).
  • Special attention to promotion of the careers of young scientists.
  • Bring academia, industry and decision-makers together.
