Quantum chemistry

In chemistry, quantum chemistry is the study of the application of quantum mechanics in chemistry.

The scientists who established the field of quantum chemistry, beginning generally in the 1920s, include: Walter Heitler and Fritz London, Linus Pauling, and Robert Mulliken, to later figures including Charles Coulson, Raymond Daudel, and Per-Olov Löwdin. The term “quantum chemistry” was first used by Austrian physicist Erich Haas in his 1929 book Die Grundlagen der Quantenchemie (The Foundations of Quantum Chemistry). [1]
