The Department of Chemistry seeks to provide students with a foundation in the fundamentals and application of chemical theories and processes of the lab. Thus prepared they me pursue careers as teachers, industry supervisors, or research chemists in a variety of domains (governmental, academic, etc).

History
The Department of Chemistry was founded in 1880.

Ames National Laboratory is a government-owned, contractor-operated national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), operated by and located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

For more than 70 years, the Ames National Laboratory has successfully partnered with Iowa State University, and is unique among the 17 DOE laboratories in that it is physically located on the campus of a major research university. Many of the scientists and administrators at the Laboratory also hold faculty positions at the University and the Laboratory has access to both undergraduate and graduate student talent.

Abstract
A detailed derivation of the frozen-orbital second-order perturbation theory (MP2) analytic gradient in the spin-orbital basis is presented. The summation ranges and modification of the MP2 gradient terms that result from the frozen-orbital approximation are clearly identified. The frozen-orbital analytic gradients for unrestricted MP2 and closed-shell MP2 are determined from the spin-orbital derivation. A discussion of useful implementation procedures is included. Timings from full and frozen-orbital MP2 gradient calculations on the molecule silicocene (the silicon analog of the sandwich compound ferrocene) are also presented.
