Molecular modeling is becoming an increasingly important part of chemical research and education as computers become faster and programs become easier to use. The results, however, have not become easier to understand. Addressing the need for a "workshop-oriented" book, Molecular Modeling Basics provides the fundamental theory needed to understand not only what molecular modeling programs do, but also the gist of research papers that describe molecular modeling results. Written in a succinct manner using informal language, the book presents concise coverage of key concepts suitable for novices to the field. It begins by examining the potential energy surface (PES), which provides the connection between experimental data and molecular modeling. It explores ways to calculate energy by molecular and quantum mechanics. It describes molecular properties and the condensed phase, and shows how to extract and interpret information from a program output. The author uses hands-on exercises to illustrate concepts and he supplements the text with a blog containing animated tutorials and interactive figures. Drawn from the author’s own lecture notes from a class he taught for many years at the University of Iowa, this volume introduces topics in such a way that beginners can clearly comprehend molecular modeling results. A perfect supplement to a molecular modeling textbook, the book offers students the "hands-on" practice they need to grasp sophisticated concepts. In addition to his blog, the author maintains a website describing his research and one detailing his seminars.

After the second edition introduced first density functional theory aspects, this third edition expands on this topic and offers unique practice in molecular mechanics calculations and DFT. In addition, the tutorial with its interactive exercises has been completely revised and uses the very latest software, a full version of which is enclosed on CD, allowing readers to carry out their own initial experiments with forcefield calculations in organometal and complex chemistry.

Why do molecules adopt particular shapes? What determines the physical and chemical properties of a material? Molecular Modelling and Bonding answers these questions by introducing the ideas behind molecular and quantum mechanics, using a largely non-mathematical approach. Atomic and molecular orbitals, computational chemistry and bonding in solids are also discussed. A Case Study, Molecular Modelling in Drug Design, explores ways in which computer modelling, in conjunction with experimental techniques, is used to design new drugs. The accompanying CD-ROM illustrates applications of molecular and quantum mechanics, and includes many of the structures and orbitals illustrated in the text. It provides the programs necessary to view orbitals and 3D structures. The Molecular World series provides an integrated introduction to all branches of chemistry for both students wishing to specialise and those wishing to gain a broad understanding of chemistry and its relevance to the everyday world and to other areas of science. The books, with their Case Studies and accompanying multi-media interactive CD-ROMs, will also provide valuable resource material for teachers and lecturers. (The CD-ROMs are designed for use on a PC running Windows 95, 98, ME or 2000.)

"Introduction to Theoretical Organic Chemistry" provides an introduction for chemists with a limited mathematical background, yet need a working understanding of quantum chemistry as applied to problems in organic chemistry. This book is unique in that it is written at the level of the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student in organic chemistry, whose exposure to theoretical chemistry is relatively recent. It fills a niche in that most books on theoretical organic chemistry are written by theoretical or computational chemists, whereas this book is written by an organic chemist. The book covers molecular modeling computer software, and offers a useful guide to the scope and limitations of each program, along with specific examples of input and output for several of the most popular software. Numerous examples and exercises are provided.

This book explores the molecular modeling, enabling the nonspecialist to appreciate the power as well as the limitations of the computational tools available and giving a background to the methods used and how they were developed. It also provides examples of how molecular modeling has been used to address chemical questions commonly asked by the experimental chemist, and includes practical examples and case studies. 143 illus.
