Frontiers in Physical Organic Chemistry: Faraday Discussions No 145

About this book

This volume focuses on recent advances in physical organic chemistry (POC). It is a field that has developed rapidly over the past two decades. Reaction kinetics and reaction mechanisms still lie at the core of physical organic chemistry, but the boundaries of POC now stretch far beyond. In this volume the topics covered include: - Organic reaction mechanisms, including synthetic and natural (enzymes, ribozymes) catalysts - Theoretical methods (ab initio and computer simulation) - Non-covalently bonded structures (intermolecular interactions, supramolecular chemistry, molecular recognition, surfactant aggregation, polymer-surfactant complexes, liquid crystals, self-assembly) - Organic surfaces (structure, properties and reactivity) - Gas phase structure and reactivity and its relationship to solution behaviour - Ultrafast processes: solvation, charge transfer, electron transfer
