Modern Physical Organic Chemistry, Hardback Book

Modern Physical Organic Chemistry Hardback


Thisis the first modern textbook, written in the 21st century, to makeexplicit the many connections between physical organic chemistry and criticalfields such as organometallic chemistry, materials chemistry, bioorganicchemistry, and biochemistry.

In the latter part of the 20th century, the field of physical organicchemistry went through dramatic changes, with an increased emphasis onnoncovalent interactions and their roles in molecular recognition,supramolecular chemistry, and biology; the development of new materials with novel structural features; and the use of computationalmethods. Contemporary chemists mustbe just as familiar with these newer fields as with the more establishedclassical topics. Thiscompletely new landmark text is intended to bridge that gap. In additionto covering thoroughly the core areas of physical organic chemistry -structure and mechanism - the book will escortthe practitioner of organic chemistry into a field that has been thoroughlyupdated.

Thefoundations and applicabilities of modern computational methods are alsodeveloped. Writtenby two distinguished researchers in this field, ModernPhysical Organic Chemistry can serve as a text for a year-long coursetargeted to advanced undergraduates or first-year graduate students, as well asfor a variety of shorter courses on selected aspects of the field.

It will also serve as a landmark new reference text, and as anintroduction to many of the more advanced topics of interest to modernresearchers.
