Astrochemistry
Programme

Astrochemistry

The Dutch Astrochemistry Network is funded by the The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, NWO, to study the origin and evolution of molecules in space. This highly interdisciplinary programme combines astrochemical and astrophysical experiments, quantum chemical calculations, laboratory spectroscopy of astronomically relevant species and modeling and observations of astronomical sources. The Network has defined a highly integrated and coherent science programme on gas-phase chemistry, solid-state chemistry, interstellar polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon molecules, and astrobiology

The Dutch Astrochemistry Network is a highly interdisciplinary network combining the astronomical and chemical expertise in the Netherlands with the goal of understanding the origin and evolution of molecules in space and their role in the Universe. This Programme book puts the Astrochemistry Network in context, describes the goals and objectives of the Network, and gives an overview of the four research themes.
