Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


This is the first modern textbook, written in the 21st century, to make explicit the many connections between physical organic chemistry and critical fields such as organometallic chemistry, materials chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. In the latter part of the 20th century, the field of physical organic chemistry went through dramatic changes, with an increased emphasis on noncovalent interactions and their roles in molecular recognition, supramolecular chemistry, and biology; the development of new materials with novel structural features; and the use of computational methods. Contemporary chemists must be just as familiar with these newer fields as with the more established classical topics.

This completely new landmark text is intended to bridge that gap. In addition to covering thoroughly the core areas of physical organic chemistry (structure and mechanism) the book will escort the practitioner of organic chemistry into a field that has been thoroughly updated. The foundations and applicabilities of modern computational methods are also developed.

Written by two distinguished researchers in this field, Modern Physical Organic Chemistry can serve as a text for a year-long course targeted to advanced undergraduates or first-year graduate students, as well as for a variety of shorter courses on selected aspects of the field. It will also serve as a landmark new reference text, and as an introduction to many of the more advanced topics of interest to modern researchers. An accompanying Student Solutions Manual will become available.

Book News Annotation:

Anslyn (chemistry, U. of Texas, Austin) and Dougherty (chemistry, California Institute of Technology) have written a textbook that will provide students with a thorough knowledge of current research and issues, as well as a grounding in the fundamentals of the field. The chapters contain a number of inset boxes that note the chapter topic's connection to relevant fields, its use in research, and other related information. Each chapter concludes with 25 or more exercises and a bibliography. There are 17 chapters in all, with topics that include stereochemistry, energy surfaces and kinetic analyses, advanced concepts in electronic structure theory, and photochemistry. This is a substantial, well thought-out text, suitable for a one-year course.
