Latest Quantum chemistry Stories
For the first time, chemists have succeeded in plugging a metal atom into a methane gas molecule, thereby creating a new compound that could be a key in opening up new production processes for the chemical industry, especially for the synthesis of organic compounds, which in turn might have implications for drug development.
An approach pioneered by researchers at North Carolina State University gives scientists new insight into the way silicon bonds with other materials at the atomic level.
An international team of scientists has used ultrashort flashes of laser light to directly observe the movement of an atomâ€™s outer electrons for the first time.
When light is absorbed by atoms, the electrons become excited.
Physicists at JILA have for the first time observed chemical reactions near absolute zero, demonstrating that chemistry is possible at ultralow temperatures and that reaction rates can be controlled using quantum mechanics, the peculiar rules of submicroscopic physics.
In an important first for a promising new technology, scientists have used a quantum computer to calculate the precise energy of molecular hydrogen.
Transforming lead into gold is an impossible feat, but a similar type of "alchemy" is not only possible, but cost-effective too.
Some atoms don't always follow the rules.
Physicists get a grip on slippery molecules, and learn how the shape of nanoscopic magnetic islands affect data storage.
Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have recently demonstrated the ability to control the spin population of the individual quantum shell states of self-assembled indium arsenide (InAs) quantum dots (QDs).
The International Journal of Quantum Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1967 by Per-Olov Lowdin. The journal moved to an in-house editorial office model in 2011, enlisting a permanent team of professional editors. It publishes original, primary research and review articles on all aspects of quantum chemistry, including an expanded scope focusing on aspects of materials science, biochemistry, biophysics, quantum physics, and quantum information theory.
