Atomic charges, bond properties, and molecular energies.


Atomic charges, bond properties, and molecular energies.

Fliszar, Sandor.

John Wiley & Sons


234 pages




Fliszar (emeritus chemistry, U. of Montreal) introduces physical organic chemistry using methods of quantum mechanics. Students are assumed to have completed a first-year graduate or advanced undergraduate course in quantum chemistry. He briefly summarizes the quantum mechanical techniques required. The section on charge distributions looks at such topics as core and valence electrons, the valence region of molecules, and charges and ionization potentials. Turning next to the energy calculation of chemical bonds, he covers thermochemical formulas, chemical bond theory, and bond dissociation energies. A final sections surveys applications in saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons, and molecules containing nitrogen and oxygen.
