Abstract : The Department of Physical Chemistry of Cambridge University with some 12 staff members and 55 postdoctoral assistants and graduate students engaged in research is a distinct department, although it shares a large, modern building with Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. The well-balanced and sophisticated research program of the Department is concerned with the basic problems of structure, reaction kinetics, photochemistry, excited states, energy transfer, and transport processes in solutions, investigated by means of modern theoretical and experimental techniques.
