Description

Product Description

This book is a presentation of a qualitative theory of chemical bonding, stressing the physical processes which occur on bond formation. It differs from most (if not all) other books in that it does not seek to "rationalise" the phenomena of bonding by a series of mnemonic rules. A principal feature is a unified and consistent treatment across all types of bonding in organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry.Each chapter has an Assignment Section containing "problems" which might be usefully attempted to improve the understanding of the new material in that chapter.The new edition has had several appendices added which give support to concepts which, if included in the main text, would have hindered the main thrust of the presentation. These new appendices are an attempt to clarify oversights and errors which have been tacitly ignored and which have now become part of the conventional wisdom.

From the Back Cover

This book is a presentation of a qualitative theory of chemical bonding stressing the physical processes which occur on bond formation. It differs from most (if not all) other books in that it does not seek to "rationalize" the phenomena of bonding by a series of mnemonic rules. A principal feature is a unified and consistent treatment across all types of bonding in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry.

Compared to the first edition, a new chapter on the quantum theory of polymers and solids is added. More problems and worked solutions are included. Also, minor changes and updates are also made throughout the textbook to facilitate enhanced understanding.

This is a challenging book to get through but quite delightful.
First the good: The author obviously loves his subject and wants to teach the reader what the chemical bond is about. The book will get right down to the atomic orbital level, and one almost feels like one is at the atomic level watching the electrons go round.
I am a chem major but took that degree 40 some years ago. The reason I read this was to catch up on what is new about the chemical bond. It became obvious quickly that this book is aimed at the chem major. The material demands that the reader knows organic chem, calculus, and thermodynamics at a basic level. One should be familiar with interpreting electron probability contour diagrams. This was something that was not taught when I took organic chem. I spent 6 hours learning about and making the 3d representation of one contour diagram!
The book needs better graphics. I spent many hours photocopying and coloring orbitals and pasting them together in order to get a good representation of what was being talked about. I also spent many hours re-reading my organic chem text, and doing internet searches to clarify many points.
Finally, I am glad I read this book because it made me think a lot and forced me to learn a lot. I highly recommend it for the prepared and persistent reader.
