Spins in Chemistry

Page: 153

Originally delivered as a series of lectures, this volume systematically traces the evolution of the "spin" concept from its role in quantum mechanics to its assimilation into the field of chemistry. Author Roy McWeeny presents an in-depth illustration of the deductive methods of quantum theory and their application to spins in chemistry, following the path from the earliest concepts to the sophisticated physical methods employed in the investigation of molecular structure and properties. Starting with the origin and development of the spin concept, the text advances to an examination of spin and valence; reviews a simple example of the origin of spin Hamiltonians; and explores spin density, spin populations, and spin correlation. Additional topics include nuclear hyperfine effects and electron spin-spin coupling, the g tensor, and chemical shifts and nuclear spin-spin coupling.

General Chemistry: The Essential Concepts

Seventh Edition

Author: Raymond Chang,Kenneth Goldsby

Publisher: McGraw-Hill Higher Education

ISBN: 0077623347

Category: Science

Page: N.A

View: 987

The seventh edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting only the material that is essential for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples; helping students visualize the three-dimensional atomic and molecular structures that are the basis of chemical activity; and developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Although the seventh edition incorporates many impressive features, such as conceptual idea review, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples, General Chemistry is still 200 to 300 pages shorter and much less expensive than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang and Dr. GoldsbyË concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.

2010 Reprint of 1926 London Edition. Khalil Gibran [1887 - April 10, 1931] also known as Kahlil Gibran, was a Lebanese American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon he immigrated when young with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. He is chiefly known in the English speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, a series of philosophical essays written in English prose. An early example of Inspirational fiction, the book sold well despite a cool critical reception, and became extremely popular in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.
