Chemical Physics

Chemical Physics is a branch of chemistry and physics that studies physical-chemical properties and phenomena of chemical systems mainly from the aspect of physics. It uses practical and theoretical research techniques of atomic and molecular scales, with a close relation to quantum mechanics, theoretical chemistry, computational chemistry, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, laser techniques and spectroscopy to investigate energy transfer and acquisition, reactivity of chemical matter, dynamics and feasibility of molecular processes. Relevant scales of matter vary from atoms, small molecules, ions, clusters, macro-molecules up to polymers and surfaces.


Truly, the distinction between Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistry is very vague, and very similar studies are carried by both disciplines.
