Physical Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, Hardback Book


Unlike most physical chemistry texts, modern physical chemistry research is based on quantum mechanics, and this state-of-the-art approach is the one adopted by McQuarrie and Simon.

Quantum theory is introduced at the outset, and the molecular viewpoint of quantum chemistry informs the authors' investigation of physical chemistry's other main topic ares - thermodynamics and chemical kinetics.

The book also includes examples of applications in NMR spectroscopy, lasers, photochemistry, gas-reaction dynamics and other current research topics. "At last there is a book written from a modern perspective!

A real winner!" George C. Fields, Lake Forest College
