Molecular Modelling: Principles and Applications, second edition

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

This text provides a detailed description of the techniques employed in molecular modelling and computational chemistry. The first part of the book covers the two major methods used to describe the interactions within a system (quantum mechanics and molecular mechanics). The second part then deals with techniques that use such energy models, including energy minimisation, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulations and conformational analysis. The author also discusses the use of more advanced modelling techniques such as the calculation of free energies and the simulation of chemical reactions. In addition he considers methods such as database searching that can be used to design new molecules with specific properties. Many of the topics are treated in considerable depth but the author assumes that the reader has only a basic knowledge of the relevant physical and chemical principles.

Most of the theoretical sections are accompanied by simple calculations together with examples drawn from the literature. The book is well illustrated and a colour plate section highlights the impact of computer molecular graphics. The book will prove a valuable text for postgraduate students and professionals and many sections will be useful to final-year undergraduates taking courses in molecular modelling or computational chemistry.

    Thank you very much for this book.
    Its a great gesture. More books must be added in this field as they are unaffordable by students.
    Thanks again.

    I have to tell you something, when I take my generic viagra pills I get an incredible understanding to developing different applications I think you should try it.
