This new volume provides a selection of chapters on many different topics and themes in theoretical and empirical physical chemistry, with a focus on multidisciplinary as well as interdisciplinary applications. It emphasizes the intersection of chemistry, math, and physics and the resulting applications across many disciplines of science.

This volume presents recent research that emphasizes many fundamental principles in physical chemistry that will also facilitate logical connections between the theory and application of physical chemistry concepts. It also demonstrates the connection between math and chemistry and how to use math as a powerful tool to predict the properties of chemicals. Sections cover theoretical perspectives in physical chemistry, bioremediation processes and techniques, and case study research and applications. Several chapters also explore research with a gender perspective and the gender diversity/gap in STEM.
