Physical Chemistry Program

Physical chemistry deals with the fundamental relations governing the behavior of atomic matter; namely, quantum chemistry, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics and chemical kinetics/dynamics. The research interests of the faculty of the physical chemistry division, theorists and experimentalists, reach across all of these areas. The members of the Division are also associated with several other programs at FSU: The School of Computational Science (SCS), the Center for Materials Research and Technology (MARTECH), the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) and the Program in Chemical Physics. The latter is an interdisciplinary, degree-granting program between the departments of Chemistry and Physics which offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Physics.

The broad diversity of these programs provides a rich environment for physical chemists. Consequently, students in physical chemistry become exposed to many issues at the forefront of the science and they have the opportunity to explore their interests within a large community of researchers.
