The Chemical Bond: A Fundamental Quantum-Mechanical Picture - Springer Series in Chemical Physics 76 (Hardback)Tadamasa Shida (author)
- We can order this
Providing the quantum-mechanical foundations of chemical bonding, this unique textbook emphasizes key concepts such as superposition, degeneracy of states and the role of the electron spin. An initial, concise and compact presentation of the rudiments of quantum mechanics enables readers to progress through the book with a firm grounding. Experimental examples are included to illustrate how the abstract concepts are manifest in real systems.

From the reviews:"The text opens with a quick review of the electron and electronic properties. ... The book ends with a good list of references for further study. ... this is a classic treatment of quantum mechanics applied to chemical bonding. ... is accessible to advanced undergraduate students, students who have had a junior-level physical chemistry class that emphasized techniques and methods for solving the Schroedinger equation will get the greatest benefit from it." (Andrew J. Pounds, Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 82 (7), July, 2005)
