Aromaticity and Other Conjugation Effects

Aromaticity and Other Conjugation Effects Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The authors provide an excellent overview of conjugation effects in organic chemistry within and between - systems. Besides various aspects of aromaticity one finds detailed discussions of homo-, spiro- and hyperconjugation as well as effects of through-space and through-bond interactions. These effects are presented on the basis of experimental results and are analyzed by the use of qualitative arguments of perturbation theory and from a comparison with results from high level ab initio calculations.

This book is a must-have for bachelor students from the second year on, master and PhD students of chemistry. Also students in science such as physics, biology and medicine will benefit from the concepts described in the book. Furthermore, chemists in research and development will be grateful to find here an overview of conjugation effects allowing to understand the structures, the dynamics and the reactivity of molecules.

Synopsis:

Providing the key knowledge required by chemistry students, the topics and concepts discussed in this stimulating textbook are an essential part of every organic chemistry course, starting at the upper undergraduate or bachelor level, but becoming increasingly important at the graduate or master level. It focuses on the fundamental concepts of bond theory, delocalization, aromaticity, and mesomerism, helping students to understand this challenging part of their chemical education by way of self-study.

About the Author

Rolf Gleiter is Professor for Organic Chemistry at the Heidelberg University. He received his Ph.D. in 1964 in the field of Organic Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart with F. Effenberger. Postdoctoral work was carried out with P. von R. Schleyer at Princeton University (1965/66) and Roald Hoffmann at Cornell University (1966 - 1968). From 1969 -1972 he did his habilitation at the University of Basel in the laboratory of E. Heilbronner. From 1973 - 1979 he served as Full Professor at the Technical University of Darmstadt followed by a chair of Organic Chemistry at Heidelberg University since 1979. His fields of interest are Physical Organic Chemistry - photoelectron spectroscopy, applied quantum chemistry - and the chemistry of alkynes, strained hydrocarbons and metallic pi-complexes. He has authored and co-authored more than 650 papers, including reviews, and edited a book on "Modern Cyclophane Chemistry" with Wiley-VCH.

Gebhard Haberhauer is Professor for Organic Chemistry at the University of Duisburg-Essen. He studied chemistry at the Universities of Vienna and Heidelberg. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Heidelberg under the supervision of Rolf Gleiter. He spent as postdoctoral fellow one year in the laboratory of J. Rebek, Jr, at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla. After working one year at the BASF in Ludwigshafen, he returned to the University of Heidelberg, where he did his habilitation (2001 - 2005). In 2005, he was appointed Professor for Organic Chemistry at the University of Duisburg-Essen. His current research interests include chirality transfer and induction in molecular recognition and molecular devices.
