The Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the Universitat de Barcelona (IQTCUB) is integrated by more than 60 researchers, experts in several fields of the Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. The research activity carried out at the IQTCUB covers methods and computational tools development, application of several techniques of electronic structures and simulation to problems in materials science, the study of reactivity and reaction dynamics in chemical reactions as well as of biological systems and soft-matter. The main goal is to generate synergies between researchers encouraging the interdisciplinary activities that allow to tackle new challenges. Another important goal is to share expertise in handling the computational resources, which are the main tools in this type of research. See the IQTCUB director’s welcome.

The Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the Universitat de Barcelona (IQTCUB) was created by the university Government Board on 27th November 2007 involving professors and researchers of different departments of the Faculties of Chemistry and Physics of the Universitat de Barcelona. Nowadays, also some groups of the Faculty of Pharmacy belong to the Institute. The common theme of the research projects conducted at the Institute is the use of methods that are rooted in quantum chemistry, recently it is also open to experimental groups of our Departments with deep collaborations with those focusing on computational chemistry. This should help to increase the multidisciplinary character of our research. Although traditionally the research at IQTCUB is mainly focused on chemistry, it is different from one would expect of a traditional chemist. Indeed, the common tools employed by the researchers at IQTCUB do not belong to a typical laboratory, but to a virtual computational “laboratory”. This “laboratory” is usually a gateway to our computational resources or to the supercomputing centers with even larger computacional facilities. The main goal of theoretical and computational chemistry is to achieve a detailed understanding of chemical and physical processes in order to assist in the interpretation…
