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.
This review has been written as a practical approach to bonding various kinds of elastomers to substrates such as steel and plastics, as used in the manufacture of diverse products such as rubber covered rolls, urethane fork lift wheels, rubber lining for chemical storage or solid rocket motors, engine bushes and mounts, seals for transmissions, electrical power connectors and military tank track pads. Based on the authors' years of experience working closely with end-use customers and it offers a thorough overview of how to successfully bond rubber to a given substrate in the manufacture of quality rubber engineered components. This review is supported by an indexed section containing several hundred key references and abstracts selected from the Polymer Library.
Because of the importance of the hydrogen bond, there have been scores of insights gained about its fundamental nature by quantum chemical computations over the years. Such methods can probe subtle characteristics of the electronic structure and examine regions of the potential energy surface that are simply not accessible by experimental means. The maturation of the techniques, codes, and computer hardware have permitted calculations of unprecedented reliability and rivaling the accuracy of experimental data.
