Computational Chemistry Software Delivered with this Book

"The book will help instructors easily give students meaningful laboratory experiments or homework to be done with computers. Use of the workbook in courses on theoretical or computation chemistry is highly recommended". (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2010)

"This book represents a refreshing attempt to empower advanced undergraduate and masters level students of chemistry to take control of their learning." (Chemistry World, December 2010)

"The book will help instructors easily give students meaningful laboratory experiments or homework to be done with computers. Use of the workbook in courses on theoretical or computation chemistry is highly recommended." (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2010)

"This book represents a refreshing attempt to empower advanced undergraduate and masters level students of chemistry to take control of their learning. It is a welcome addition that complements existing learning tools". (Chemistry World, 1 October 2010)

"This workbook introduces an appropriate set of areas of computational chemistry in a practical and user-friendly manner. Heine and Gelessus (both, Jacobs Univ. Bremen, Germany) and Joswig (Technical Univ. Dresden, Germany) discuss each topic at a level accessible to a broad range of readers. A particularly strong feature of the book is the promotion of hands-on work through a CD that boots Knoppix Linux on a PC, with software (including deMon density functional software) to work with the various topics of the workbook." (CHOICE, July 2010)
