Winner of the PROSE Award for Chemistry & Physics 2010
Acknowledging the superior in expert and scholarly publishing, the once a year PROSE Awards recognize publishers' and authors' dedication to pioneering works of analysis and for contributing to the notion, creation, and layout of landmark works of their fields. Judged by means 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 thought 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 serious about the making and breaking of chemical bonds—the chemical reactions which are frequently the focal point of an natural chemist's curiosity. natural chemists with a significant curiosity in knowing and explaining their paintings often convey their principles in molecular orbital phrases, rather a lot in order that it truly is now an integral 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 concept and a assessment of its functions in natural chemistry; it presents a uncomplicated advent to the topic and a wealth of illustrative examples. during this e-book molecular orbital idea is gifted in a miles simplified, and fully non-mathematical language, obtainable to each natural chemist, no matter if pupil or study employee, no matter if mathematically powerfuble or now not. subject matters coated include:
- Molecular Orbital Theory
- Molecular Orbitals and the buildings of natural Molecules
- Chemical Reactions — How a long way 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 very important topic for college students of natural, actual natural and computational chemistry.
The Reference variation variation takes the content material and an identical non-mathematical method of the scholar version, and provides wide additional topic assurance, element and over 1500 references. the extra fabric provides a deeper knowing of the types used, and features a broader variety of functions and case reviews. supplying an entire in-depth reference for a extra complex viewers, this variation will discover a position at the bookshelves of researchers and complex scholars of natural, actual natural and computational chemistry. additional details should be considered here.
"These books are the results of years of labor, which started as an try and write a moment variation of my 1976 e-book Frontier Orbitals and natural Chemical Reactions. i wished to provide a slightly extra thorough creation to molecular orbitals, whereas conserving 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 thrilled to win this prize, and desire a brand new iteration of chemists will reap the benefits of those books."
