What is physical chemistry

Physical chemistry

Formerly the border area between physics and chemistry, also known as physical chemistry, which deals with research into the physical phenomena that occur during chemical processes as well as with the influence of physical effects on chemical processes.

In addition to inorganic and organic chemistry, physical chemistry is one of the classic sub-areas of this scientific subject. It comprises a number of other sub-disciplines, of which theoretical chemistry, thermodynamics (chemical thermodynamics and thermochemistry), kinetics, electrochemistry and spectroscopy are just a few. In addition, physicochemical data, physicochemical aspects and questions in many other areas of chemistry and other subjects play a role. The relationship between chemistry and physics is particularly close when it comes to subjects that deal with atoms and molecules.

Further information and sources on the subject in English can be found in the category physical chemistry.
