Bienvenue - Laboratoire de Chimie Théorique
UMR 7616


Sorbonne Université



The Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory

also known as LCT, is a research group belonging to both Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6) and CNRS (UMR 7616).

The scientific activity

of the laboratory covers most of the fundamental aspects and of the fields of application of Theoretical Chemistry. This involves the modelling of complex systems concerning molecular chemistry, biochemistry, astrophysics and surface reactivity as well as methodological advances in the Density Functional Theory and Quantum Monte Carlo approaches. Epistemological considerations on conceptual chemistry are also developed.

Our scientific production has implications and applications in many domains : conceptual chemistry, chemical education, software developments, asymmetric synthesis, toxicology, astrophysics, study of the planetary atmospheres, catalysis, drugs, biomaterials...
