Theoretical chemistry


Theoretical chemistry is the use of non-experimental reasoning to explain or predict chemical phenomena. In recent years, it has consisted primarily of quantum chemistry , i. e., the application of quantum mechanics to problems in chemistry. Much of this has in factfallen under the heading of computational chemistry ,i. e., the application of computation to the solution of problems in chemistry. Chemical theorists have also used the power of statistical mechanics to provide a bridge between themicroscopic phenomena of the quantum world and the macroscopic bulk properties of systems.

Theoretical attacks on chemical problems go back to the earliest days, but until the formulation of the Schrödinger equation by the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger , the techniques available were rather crude and speculative. Currently, much moresophisticated theoretical attacks based on quantum mechanics are in vogue.
