Author: Motohiro Nishio
A systematic exploration of the fascinating area of CH/p interaction-from the frontier of chemical research
The CH/p bond may be the weakest of the hydrogen bonds, but it has been found to play important roles in the physical, chemical, and biological properties of a variety of substances. This book offers a complete overview of the experimental basis, theoretical background, and nature of the CH/p interaction to facilitate a clearer common understanding of the interaction between CH bonds and p-systems. Featured topics include:
* Evidence and methods of detection
* Quantum chemical treatment of CH/p interaction
* Comparison with other types of weak molecular interactions
* Conformational consequences
* Chiroptical properties
* Selectivity in organic reactions
* Crystal structures of clathrates
* Inclusion compounds
* Interligand interactions in coordination chemistry
* Specific interactions in protein structures
* Prospects and possibilities for use in biochemistry and materials science
The CH/p Interaction makes an important contribution to the understanding of weak intermolecular forces and their potential value to the biochemical and pharmaceutical sciences. It will be welcomed by physical and synthetic organic chemists; structural chemists; and pharmaceutical and biochemists.
|Stereoselectivity in Synthesis
Lowest new price: $33.00
Lowest used price: $12.00
List price: $221.00
Author: Tse-Lok Ho
Many chemicals are found in "right-" and "left-handed" forms that may react differently in the body. In planning a synthesis, chemists must know how to select the best method for making the preferred form of a chemical. This book shows how to choose the best method for a given synthesis. It provides readers with a thorough understanding of stereoselectivity in organic and medicinal chemistry as well as the pharmaceutical, agricultural, and food industries.

Author: A.H. Sihvola
For scientists, research engineers, physicists and postgraduate students, this work introduces the essential aspects of electromagnetic waves in chiral and bi-isotropic media, to give the practical working knowledge necessary for new application development. It includes sections on effective methods of measurement, how chiral and BI media affect electromagnetic fields and wave propagation, and how to apply the theory to basic problems in waveguide, antenna and scattering analysis.
|Stereochemistry (Basic Concepts In Chemistry)
Lowest new price: $35.00
Lowest used price: $38.00
List price: $55.99
Author: David G. Morris
Stereochemistry covers the fundamental principles in all aspects of stereochemistry. This concise resource is generously enriched with numerous worked examples. Concentrating on organic chemistry, early chapters in this resourceful publication deal mainly with definitions of terms such as chirality, enantiomers, diastereoisomers and racemisation, complete with suitable examples to illustrate key concepts. Use of a polarimeter and associated definitions are described, together with two different conventions D, L and R, S for specification of configuration. The distinction between conformation and configuration is developed to include assignment onf configurations to di-substituted cyclohexanes and to the decalins.

What do Schrödinger's wave functions, Escher's intricate tiling patterns and chemistry's latest marvel, buckminsterfullerene, have in common?
This stunning book, written by two world-famous scientists, introduces the reader to one of nature's most fundamental, and ubiquitous, phenomena: Symmetry.
Enormous in scope, this scientific tour-de-force covers topics as diverse as quantum mechanics, stereochemistry, Penrose tilings and Raphael's Madonna. The authors connect these apparently unrelated fields in a completely non-mathematical fashion, which should appeal to the general and specialist reader alike.
Lucidly written and beautifully illustrated, this book provides an eminently readable discussion of the omnipresent concept of symmetry, its application in all branches of science, and its perception in nature, art and elsewhere.
|The Molecule and Its Double (Mcgraw Hill Horizons of Science Series)
Lowest new price: $15.09
Lowest used price: $1.20
List price: $11.95
Author: Jean Jacques
Certain compounds, such as amino acids, the building blocks of living matter, exist in two forms, a left-handed and a right-handed, which are mirror images. This book offers a account of these molecular structures and the ways in which scientific thinking about them has evolved, from Pasteur's discovery of this "dissymmetry" to the present time. The stereochemist, Jean Jacques, presents an overview of the nature of atoms and molecules, as well as the various tools which science has developed to study them. He also explains how these discoveries have influenced modern drug research, and how the break in symmetry found at the molecular level seems to be reflected in the structure of the universe itself.
|Carbon-13 NMR Chemical Shifts in Structural and Stereochemical Analysis (Methods in Stereochemical Analysis)
Lowest new price: $1,455.81
Lowest used price: $575.09
List price: $185.00
Author: Kalevi Pihlaja
The book concentrates in illustrating the applications of C-13 chemical shifts to structural and stereochemical analysis of a variety of organic, oranometallic and bio-organic compounds including dynamic NMR, the experimental conditions to determine and various multidimensional methods to assign the C-13 chemical shifts. First time a chemist who wants to employ C-NMR for solving a structural problem will find practically all necessary fundamental advice within the same covers. The book is a new volume in the successful series 'Methods in Stereochemical Analysis' and is geared towards scientists and students. It is limited mainly to alicyclic chemistry in order to make the explanations transparent and understandable to readers.
