Theoretical chemistry involves the use of physical, mathematical and computaional methods to explain or predict chemical phenomena.

Over the course of time, the contents of theoretical chemistry have changed. Today, Theoretical Chemistry is an independent discipline between inorganic, organic and physical chemistry and biochemistry, in which theoretical methods and methods of physics and mathematics are applied to chemistry questions - usually with computers as tools (see also: computational chemistry; quantum chemistry).

The following list lists online information on the topics of theoretical chemistry as well as the institutions involved.
