The theoretical Chemical Physics program at Ames Laboratory supports integrated efforts in electronic structure theory and non-equilibrium statistical mechanical & multiscale modeling. The primary focus is on the development and application of methods that enable the study of surface phenomena, heterogeneous catalysis, cluster science and nucleation theory, and mechanisms in organometallic chemistry.

|The June 1991 issue of Insider focused on VEISHEA activities -- Adventures in Science --, including the Lab's solared-powered Sun Ranger pickup. Also featured was "Project Earthworm," a robotic probe to analyze materials from hazardous waste sites, a variety of awards to staff, and a staff fishing event.|
|Earlier this year, Iowa State University implemented street addresses for all campus buildings and the signage outside all the buildings, including the primary Ames Laboratory facilities, now carry the street addresses.|
A research project led by the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub, has identified agents for the separation of rare-earth metals that are potentially much less costly and better-performing than those currently used. The science is further discussed in a paper, “Computer-Aided Molecular Design of Bis-phosphine Oxide Lanthanide Extractants.”
