Following an insightful introduction, the book begins with an overview of conformer searching techniques before progressing to explore numerous different techniques and methods, including confined environments, quantum similarity descriptors, volume-based thermodynamics and polarizability. A unified approach to the rules of aromaticity is followed by methods for assessing interaction energies and the role of electron density for varied different analyses. Algorithms for confirmer searching, partitioning and a whole range of quantum chemical methods are also discussed.
Consolidating the knowledge of a global team of experts in the field, Chemical Reactivity, Volume 2: Approaches and Applications is a useful resource for both students and researchers interested in applying and refining their use of the latest approaches for assessing chemical reactivity in their own work.
