About Us

Quantemol was founded by Prof. Jonathan Tennyson FRS and Dr Daniel Brown in 2004. We develop unique software tools that bring accessibility to highly sophisticated research codes and unique data. With an expanding research team, Quantemol also provides consultancy services, which are carried out by world leading scientists in their respective fields.Since 2004 we have grown our product portfolio through collaborations with experts to develop esteemed plasma simulation codes.

Our mission statement

“To serve our users in industry and academia, to simulate complex processes more efficiently, reliably, accurately and cost-effectively and thereby accelerate technological and scientific innovation”

Products & Services


Quantemol-N (QN) Uses the UK molecular R-matrix code to model electron-polyatomic molecule interactions.

Quantemol-EC (QEC) is a new generation of highly automated software to calculate electron-molecule scattering cross sections using a suite of new R-matrix codes alongside Molpro, a quantum chemistry program.

Quantemol-VT (QVT) Brings an unsurpassed user experience to the world-renowned plasma simulation codes of Prof. Mark Kushner from the University of Michigan.

Quantemol-DB (QDB) A leading sustainable database capable of modeling the chemical and radiative transport properties of a very wide range of plasma’s. The database contains chemistry data for plasma chemistry modeling with pre-assembled and validated chemistry sets. To sign up for the database please click here.

Consultancy Unique service provided for customers ranging from small calculations to complex problems. This service is tailored to your needs by our highly skilled engineers working on a confidential basis.



Quantemol has a global presence, and our customers come from a wide range of industries. Quantum chemistry has a broad reach and as a result, our customers include R&D facilities in academia and numerous industries. The semiconductor sector represents Quantemol’s core market and new sectors which include companies using plasma processes such as plasma-assisted etch and deposition, plasma-assisted combustion, electrically powered spacecraft propulsion, biological applications and ecological studies on plasma application. Combustion is utilised in industries such as process industries, metallurgy, cement, refining & petrochemicals, energy & power, and aerospace & marine. Electrically powered spacecraft propulsion is being pursued within the space industry. Plasma medical/biological applications, as well as ecological applications of plasma such as water purification, are utilising this technology as a novel approach.

By empowering manufacturers with a better understanding of quantum-level processes, there is a reduction of experimental trial and error, thereby speeding up innovation to the mass market while reducing wasteful and expensive experimental tests. A significant benefit for society involves the development of smarter and more agile technologies in a less environmentally polluting manner by not only reducing the need for wasteful tests but also aiding the replacement of banned feed-stock gases.
