Applied Thermodynamics and Molecular Simulation

ATOMS is a research group dedicated to the development of theoretical, experimental, and computational tools in the fields of classical and statistical thermodynamics, and to the application of these tools to the solution of problems of both academic and industrial interest.

The group congregates professors, researchers, and students of two academic units of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil:

Research at ATOMS is supported by Brazilian public agencies such as the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), and the State Research Funding Agency of Rio de Janeiro (FAPERJ). We also receive support from Petrobras through its R&D funding program, regulated by the Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP).
