Intra- and Inter-Molecular Interactions Between Non-Covalently Bonded Species reviews both theoretical developments and experimental procedures in order to explore interactions between non bonded entities in such a fundamental manner as to elucidate their nature and origins. Drawing on the extensive experience of its editor and team of expert authors, this book is an indispensable guide on foundational knowledge, the latest advances, most pressing challenges and future directions for all those whose work is influenced by these interactions.
- Comprehensively describes the nature of interactions between non-bonded species, including in biological systems, crystals and in water, amongst others
- Combines fundamental background information with knowledge of experimental techniques
- Outlines interactions in a clear and consistent fashion, with a particular focus on frequency and time resolved spectroscopies as applied to these interactions

After graduating from Princeton University, Elliot Bernstein went on to receive his PhD from California Institute of Technology, USA. Following positions at the University of Chicago, University of Princeton, and extensive experience teaching around the world, he went on to posts as Assistant Professor and Assistant Chair at the Department of Chemistry, Colorado State University, USA, where he now leads a team as full Professor. His interests including conformation and potential energy surfaces of isolated and solvated non-rigid molecules, nucleation, growth and structure of van der Waals clusters in the gas phase, energy dynamics and chemical reaction in van der Waals clusters, spectroscopy of reactive intermediates, and metal oxide cluster catalysis.
In addition to his teaching work, Prof Bernstein's wealth of experience includes working as Director of the Condensed Matter Sciences Laboratory at CSU, as a Consultant at Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LANL), Philip Morris Research Center (PMRC), DuPont Corporation, and DX, Inc., and as a visiting Scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). He has chaired numerous panels and been involved with the organization of many key conferences. Prof Bernstein has also receiving numerous honours for his work, is a member of multiple professional organisations, and has over 280 publications to his name.
