The division of Theoretical Chemistry & Biology was established at KTH in 1999. We are located at the Albanova University Center - please come and see us! Our work is computer based, and consists mostly of the modeling of microscopic systems - that is we use mathematical models to simulate such systems in order to describe their properties, spectra and reactions. This could mean a molecule, a cluster, a polymer, a segment of a protein, a functional center in an enzyme, or a species which is dissolved in a solvent or adsorbed on a surface. The modelling is mostly, but not always, based on theories related to quantum mechanics. We have common projects among ourselves and with other biologists, chemists and physicists, here and elsewhere. We are also involved in teaching and seminars.
