Fast and Robust Quantum Chemistry

For researchers worldwide, quantum chemical calculations are indispensable. With TURBOMOLE®, a development TURBOMOLE GmbH *, of University of Karlsruhe and Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH, we offer a very powerful, general purpose Quantum Chemistry program package for ab initio electronic structure calculations with a very wide range of applications.

TURBOMOLE features all standard and state of the art methods, a very fast DFT code for molecules and solids, excited states and spectra using DFT or Coupled Cluster methods. High accuracy calculations as well as fast and low-scaling algorithms and parallelization allow tackling systems that have been out of reach before.


  • Up to 80% faster results
  • 25%  improvement in researcher productivity
  • Physics based computational quantum chemistry methods
  • Both State of the Art and Cutting Edge tool
  • Powerful toolbox experts and non-experts can handle
TmoleX Demo versions for Windows, Linux and MacOS
