  Theoretical Chemistry Section    

The Theoretical Chemistry Section's research aims to increase our fundamental understanding of the chemical and electronic properties of materials, surfaces, clusters, and molecules with potential importance to the Navy. The section provides the theoretical underpinning for planning, guiding, and interpreting the experimental studies in the Chemistry Division. To accomplish these objectives the section uses a highly interdisciplinary approach blending scientific expertise in quantum chemistry, surface and cluster science, chemical dynamics, materials science, solid-state chemistry and physics, density-functional, and many-body theory. The section also applies chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics methods to problems in fuel cell performance that are relevant to efficient and high-performance use of logistics fuels
