Institut für Physikalische Chemie
Research at the IPC
Welcome to the Institue of Physical Chemistry. As part of the Faculty of Chemistry, our long-established house looks back on 120 years of excellent research in the field of Physical Chemistry.
It covers a broad range of theoretical and practical methods and systems, from the dynamics of diatomic molecules at surfaces, the interactions of small molecular aggregates polymerisation to macromolecules up to the properties of micro- and macroscopic biological structures and condensed matter.
RTG BENCh starts in 2019
The research training group (RTG) “Benchmark Experiments for Numerical Quantum Chemistry” (BENCh) will establish a high-level research programme aiming to provide landmark experiments for quantum chemical methods benchmarking. The students under the programme will benefit from a wide variety of lab techniques and theoretical support, in order to conceive and execute challenging experiments towards the limits of measurement accuracy in each specific field, and/or enabling data gathering in diverse chemical systems/phenomena. The topics will span from gas phase spectrometry, molecular beam techniques, molecular magnetism to X-ray diffraction.more…
