The application of physical principles and measurements to understand the properties of matter, as well as for the development of new technologies for the environment, energy and medicine is Physical Chemistry. Advanced Physical Chemistry topics consist of different spectroscopic methods ranging from ultrafast and mass spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic and electron paramagnetic resonance, x-ray absorption and atomic force microscopy, also theoretical and computational tools.Theses tools provide atomic-level understanding for applications such as, inter facial chemistry of catalysis and implants, electron and proton transfer, protein function, photosynthesis, nanodevices for bio-detection and receptors. The gap between the theories and techniques of modern-day physics and chemical systems is filled by Physical chemistry. Physical and theoretical chemists work to unravel the phenomena that govern all aspects of the physical world by using advanced characterization and computational methods. Advanced characterization techniques is applied to a diverse range of topics – energy storage materials for electric vehicles, biologically relevant proteins to understand degenerative diseases, photo-induced molecular transformations and complex surface properties by Physical chemists. As to improve our understanding of all aspects of chemistry, right down to the nature of chemical bonding, Theoretical chemists work to establish quantum mechanical methods.
