What is organic physicochemistry?

Organic physical chemistry can be considered as the study of the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. More specifically, organic physical chemistry applies the experimental tools of classical physical chemistry to the study of organic molecules and provides a theoretical framework that interprets the influence of structures on both reaction mechanisms and reaction rates of organic reactions .

Among the most outstanding fields of research are:

1-Conformational analysis

2- Spectroscopy

3- Non-covalent interactions




7- Quantum chemistry
