About this book

This short text is intended for first year undergraduates and introduces some concepts of chemical bonding in a clear, descriptive and essentially non-mathematical fashion. This text will find a place alongside textbooks containing more detailed formal coverage and mathematical descriptions. This book could form the basis of a 8-12 lecture introductory course on chemical bonding. The book addresses aspects of atomic orbital structure and uses this to develop a discussion of the bonding in diatomic and polyatomic molecules using Lewis dot structures, hybrid orbital, and molecular orbital methods. The prediction of molecular shape is addresses through the VSEPR method.

"This book is a great summary and overview on bonding. It presents the different bonding theories in chronological sequence and consequently increasing complexity, from the discovery of sub-atomic particles to MO theory. Great synthesis and review of topic for upperclassmen; good illustrations and introduction for underclassmen."--Dr. Susan Marine, Centre College
