This book will revolutionize the way physical chemistry is taught by bridging the gap between the traditional "solve a bunch of equations for a very simple model" approach and the computational methods that are used to solve research problems. While some recent textbooks include exercises using pre-packaged Hartree-Fock/DFT calculations, this is largely limited to giving students a proverbial black box. The DIY (do-it-yourself) approach taken in this book helps student gain understanding by building their own simulations from scratch. The reader of this book should come away with the ability to apply and adapt these techniques in computational chemistry to his or her own research problems, and have an enhanced ability to critically evaluate other computational results. This book is mainly intended to be used in conjunction with an existing physical chemistry text, such as McQuarrie & Simon's Physical Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, but it is also well suited as a stand-alone text for upper level undergraduate or intro graduate computational chemistry courses. Assumes no computational background. Enables students to build simulations from scratch to reproduce famous literature calculations. Teaches a variety of computational/numerical/simulation methods, applicable to solving chemical problems. Designed to "play well" with McQuarrie & Simon's landmark P CHEM text, but can be used with others as well.

Sodium Dithionite, Rongalite and Thiurea Oxides provides an in depth overview of historical and newly developed fields of application for important sulfur-containing reductants. It begins with an introduction into the structure and general properties of sodium dithionite, sodium hydroxymethanesulfinate (rongalite) and thiourea oxides. Following this there is analysis of their stability in different types of solutions, and reactions with both organic and inorganic compounds. Finally, there is description of the application of the reductants in industry, using examples of the textile, printing and paper industries, as well as in polymerization processes.Despite widespread practical application, the mechanism behind these compounds is not fully understood, due to their unusual structure and complex decomposition within solutions. This comprehensive review presents up-to-date findings to both academics and industrial chemists, aiming to increase knowledge and provide both fundamental and technical data dedicated to these relatively simple chemicals which have wide practical applications.

This first systematic scientific reference in the area of micro-
and nanostructured biopolymer systems discusses in two volumes the
morphology, structure, dynamics, properties and applications of all
important biopolymers, as well as their blends, composites,
interpenetrating networks and gels.
Success comes in many forms and in synthesis it can be a failure
that results in their ultimate successful solutions. This
long-awaited sequel to "Dead Ends and Detours" retains the proven
concept while featuring over 20 new case studies of failed
strategies and their (successful) solutions in natural product
total synthesis. Additionally, computational models are used to
discuss the problem in much more detail and to provide readers with
additional information not found in the primary literature. The
topics range from classic synthetic reactions (e.g. Diels Alder
reaction), metal-mediated coupling reactions, metathesis, and
asymmetric catalysis to the importance of protecting and activating
