|We present a new chemodynamical code based on the adaptive mesh refinement code RAMSES. The new code uses Eulerian hydrodynamics and N-body dynamics in
a cosmological framework to trace the production and advection of several chemical species. It is the first such code to follow the self-consistent evolution of
chemical elements in cosmological volumes while maintaining sub-kiloparsec resolution. The code will be used to simulate disk galaxies and explore the influence
of chemical evolution models and star formation on galactic abundance ratios.
