The broad field of Physical Chemistry can be divided into four subject areas: thermodynamics, kinetics, electrochemistry and structure of matter / spectroscopy. Lectures and lab classes are offered on each of these subject areas.


Their scope varies according to the particular study course. For some study courses, physical chemistry is obligatory, either as a major or as a secondary subject. For other courses, it may be selected as an elective course.

Further details are shown in the various study courses.

Actual units of instruction of our professors you will find on RWTHonline.
