Why do molecules adopt particular shapes? What determines the physical and chemical properties of a material? Molecular Modelling and Bonding answers these questions by introducing the ideas behind molecular and quantum mechanics, using a largely non-mathematical approach. Atomic and molecular orbitals, computational chemistry and bonding in solids are also discussed. A Case Study, Molecular Modelling in Drug Design, explores ways in which computer modelling, in conjunction with experimental techniques, is used to design new drugs. The accompanying CD-ROM illustrates applications of molecular and quantum mechanics, and includes many of the structures and orbitals illustrated in the text. It provides the programs necessary to view orbitals and 3D structures. The Molecular World series provides an integrated introduction to all branches of chemistry for both students wishing to specialise and those wishing to gain a broad understanding of chemistry and its relevance to the everyday world and to other areas of science. The books, with their Case Studies and accompanying multi-media interactive CD-ROMs, will also provide valuable resource material for teachers and lecturers. (The CD-ROMs are designed for use on a PC running Windows 95, 98, ME or 2000.)

... well presented, readable and, most importantly, offers an accessible, non-mathematical overview of this increasingly important branch of modern chemistry ... high quality images and an extremely effective supporting CD-ROM ... the quality of the presentation and the depth of the material covered suggest that it will be useful to chemistry students both at the start of their degrees and beyond the second year of most degree programmes. * Education in Chemistry, November 2003 *
