The description of the electronic behavior of atoms and molecules as pertains to their reactivity is an application of quantum chemistry.

Some topics in quantum chemistry include:

  • the Born-Oppenheimer approximation
  • Hartree-Fock self consistent field (SCF) theory
  • Density functional theory
