The Computational Chemistry Grid project (CCG) is a National Science Foundation project in computational chemistry.
The CCG is a virtual organization that allocates time on high-performance computing (HPC) resources for running computational chemistry applications through distributed support and services using an intuitive client called GridChem.
GridChem is a Java Desktop software application that presents a common interface to the user, integrating authentication, molecular editing, input and job preparation, job submission, and output monitoring. The GridChem Middleware Services manages and monitors execution of applications on the HPC resources through web services, and hosts consulting and allocations services.
The computational power includes several Intel processor clusters, IBM Power4 and SGI Origin 2000.
Computing-sensitive areas include:
- quantum chemistry

Famous quotes containing the word chemistry:
“Science with its retorts would have put me to sleep; it was the opportunity to be ignorant that I improved. It suggested to me that there was something to be seen if one had eyes. It made a believer of me more than before. I believed that the woods were not tenantless, but choke-full of honest spirits as good as myself any day,not an empty chamber, in which chemistry was left to work alone, but an inhabited house,and for a few moments I enjoyed fellowship with them.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
