About this book

This advanced text on applied molecular orbital theory covers organic, organometallic, inorganic and solid state chemistry to demonstrate how common orbital situations arise throughout the whole chemical spectrum. Highlights the relationships among orbitals, enabling readers to see the theoretical connections across the traditional boundaries of chemistry subdisciplines, thus simplifying structure and reactivity problems.
