Ab Initio Valence Calculations in Chemistry

Ab Initio Valence Calculations in Chemistry describes the theory and practice of ab initio valence calculations in chemistry and applies the ideas to a specific example, linear BeH2. Topics covered include the Schrödinger equation and the orbital approximation to atomic orbitals; molecular orbital and valence bond methods; practical molecular wave functions; and molecular integrals. Open shell systems, molecular symmetry, and localized descriptions of electronic structure are also discussed. This book is comprised of 13 chapters and begins by introducing the reader to the use of the Schrödinger equation to solve the electronic structure of molecular systems. This discussion is followed by two chapters that describe the chemical and mathematical nature of orbital theories in quantum chemistry. Two general ways of using chemical and physical information in looking for approximate solutions of the Schrödinger equation are highlighted: model approximations and numerical approximations. Attention then turns to atomic orbitals as the basis of a description of molecular electronic structure; practical molecular wave functions; and a general strategy for performing molecular valence calculations. The final chapter examines the nature of the valence electronic structure by using invariance with respect to transformations among the occupied molecular orbitals and among the atomic orbitals. This text will be of interest to students and practitioners of chemistry, biochemistry, and quantum mechanics.

Problem-solving is one of the most challenging aspects students encounter in general chemistry courses leading to frustration and failure. Consequently, many students become less motivated to take additional chemistry courses after the first year. This book deals with calculations in general chemistry and its primary goal is to prevent frustration by providing students with innovative, intuitive, and systematic strategies to problem-solving in chemistry. The material addresses this issue by providing several sample problems with carefully explained step-by-step solutions for each concept. Key concepts, basic theories, and equations are provided and worked examples are selected to reflect possible ways problems could be presented to students.

The chapters are arranged in a logical sequence, identifying almost every equilibrium scenario that an analytical chemist is likely to encounter. The spreadsheet calculations and graphics offer an excellent solution to otherwise time-consuming operations. Worked examples are included throughout the book, and student-tested problems are featured at the end of each chapter. Spreadsheet commands for QuattroPro, Quattro, and Lotus 1-2-3 are embedded in the text. Concepts & Calculations in Analytical Chemistry: A Spreadsheet Approach has been designed to serve both as a supplement to an undergraduate quantitative analysis course or as a text in a graduate-level advanced analytical chemistry course. Professional chemists will also find this to be an excellent introduction to spreadsheet applications in the lab and a modern overview of analytical chemistry in a self-study format.
