This graduate level text presents the first comprehensive overview of modern chemical valency and bonding theory, written by internationally recognised experts in the field. The authors build on the foundation of Lewis- and Pauling-like localized structural and hybridization concepts to present a book that is directly based on current ab-initio computational technology. The presentation is highly visual and intuitive throughout, based on the recognizable and transferable graphical forms of natural bond orbitals (NBOs) and their spatial overlaps in the molecular environment. The book shows applications to a broad range of molecular and supramolecular species of organic, inorganic and bioorganic interest. Hundreds of orbital illustrations help to convey the essence of modern NBO concepts for those with no extensive background in the mathematical machinery of the Schrodinger equation. This book will appeal to those studying chemical bonding in relation to chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry and physics.
This is the first compendium on silicon/glass microsystems made by deep wet etching and the first book with a detailed description of bonding techniques used in microsystem technology. Technological results presented in the book have been tested experimentally by the author and his team, and can be utilized in day-to-day laboratory practice. Special attention has been paid to the highest level of accessibility of the book by students.
Ideal for undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in chemical bonding, Chemical Bonding and Molecular Geometry: From Lewis to Electron Densities can also be used in inorganic chemistry courses. Authored by Ronald Gillespie, a world-class chemist and expert on chemical bonding, and Paul Popelier of the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, this text provides students with a comprehensive and detailed introduction to the principal models and theories of chemical bonding and geometry. It also serves as a useful resource and an up-to-date introduction to modern developments in the field for instructors teaching chemical bonding at any level.
