Winner of the PROSE Award for Chemistry & Physics 2010
Acknowledging some of the best in specialist and scholarly publishing, the once a year PROSE Awards recognize publishers' and authors' dedication to pioneering works of study and for contributing to the notion, creation, and layout of landmark works of their fields. Judged through 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 buildings. it's also a conception able to giving a few perception into the forces interested in the making and breaking of chemical bonds—the chemical reactions which are usually the focal point of an natural chemist's curiosity. natural chemists with a significant curiosity in realizing and explaining their paintings often convey their rules in molecular orbital phrases, rather a lot in order that it's now a vital part of each natural chemist's talents to have a few acquaintance with molecular orbital theory.
Molecular Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions is either a simplified account of molecular orbital thought and a evaluation of its functions in natural chemistry; it presents a uncomplicated creation to the topic and a wealth of illustrative examples. during this e-book molecular orbital conception is gifted in a far simplified, and completely non-mathematical language, available to each natural chemist, even if scholar or learn employee, even if mathematically useful or no longer. issues coated include:
- Molecular Orbital Theory
- Molecular Orbitals and the constructions of natural Molecules
- Chemical Reactions — How some distance and the way Fast
- Ionic Reactions — Reactivity
- Ionic Reactions — Stereochemistry
- Pericyclic Reactions
- Radical Reactions
- Photochemical Reactions

Molecular Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions: scholar Edition is a useful first textbook in this vital topic for college students of natural, actual natural and computational chemistry.
The Reference variation variation takes the content material and an identical non-mathematical procedure of the scholar variation, and provides vast additional topic insurance, element and over 1500 references. the extra fabric provides a deeper figuring out of the versions used, and contains a broader diversity of purposes and case experiences. supplying an entire 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. additional details might be seen here.
"These books are the results of years of labor, which started as an try to write a moment version of my 1976 booklet Frontier Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions. i needed to offer a slightly extra thorough creation to molecular orbitals, whereas protecting my specialize in the natural chemist who didn't want a mathematical account, yet nonetheless desired to comprehend natural chemistry at a actual point. i am overjoyed to win this prize, and wish a brand new new release of chemists will take advantage of those books."
