Winner of the PROSE Award for Chemistry & Physics 2010
Acknowledging the superior in expert and scholarly publishing, the once a year PROSE Awards realize publishers' and authors' dedication to pioneering works of analysis and for contributing to the perception, creation, and layout of landmark works of their fields. Judged by way of peer publishers, librarians, and doctors, Wiley are happy to congratulate Professor Ian Fleming, winner of the PROSE Award in Chemistry and Physics for Molecular Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions.
Molecular orbital concept is utilized by chemists to explain the association of electrons in chemical constructions. it's also a thought in a position to giving a few perception into the forces considering the making and breaking of chemical bonds—the chemical reactions which are usually the point of interest of an natural chemist's curiosity. natural chemists with a major curiosity in figuring out and explaining their paintings often convey their rules in molecular orbital phrases, a lot in order that it truly is now an integral part of each natural chemist's abilities to have a few acquaintance with molecular orbital theory.
Molecular Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions is either a simplified account of molecular orbital idea and a evaluation of its purposes in natural chemistry; it offers a easy creation to the topic and a wealth of illustrative examples. during this booklet molecular orbital conception is gifted in a miles simplified, and fully non-mathematical language, obtainable to each natural chemist, no matter if scholar or learn employee, even if mathematically efficient or now not. themes coated include:
- Molecular Orbital Theory
- Molecular Orbitals and the buildings of natural Molecules
- Chemical Reactions — How some distance and the way Fast
- Ionic Reactions — Reactivity
- Ionic Reactions — Stereochemistry
- Pericyclic Reactions
- Radical Reactions
- Photochemical Reactions
This increased Reference version of Molecular Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions takes the content material and an identical non-mathematical process of the coed version, and provides broad additional topic assurance, element and over 1500 references. the extra fabric provides a deeper realizing of the versions used, and encompasses a broader variety of functions and case reviews. delivering a whole in-depth reference for a extra complex viewers, this version will discover a position at the bookshelves of researchers and complex scholars of natural, actual natural and computational chemistry.
The pupil version of Molecular Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions offers molecular orbital conception in a simplified shape, and provides a useful first textbook in this vital topic for college students of natural, actual natural and computational chemistry.
"These books are the results of years of labor, which started as an try to write a moment version of my 1976 e-book Frontier Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions. i wished to provide a slightly extra thorough creation to molecular orbitals, whereas holding my concentrate on the natural chemist who didn't wish a mathematical account, yet nonetheless desired to comprehend natural chemistry at a actual point. i am overjoyed to win this prize, and desire a brand new new release of chemists will reap the benefits of those books."
-Professor Ian Fleming
