PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY [physical chemistry] branch of science that combines the principles and methods of physics and chemistry.
There are three principal approaches in physical chemistry: thermodynamics, involving large numbers of molecules in equilibrium; kinetics, involving chemical changes with time; and molecular structure, involving the electronic and atomic arrangements that follow from the quantum theory.
The latter approach is primarily theoretical and provides an understanding of the chemical bonds which are responsible for the structure of all materials.
