Throughout chemistry, computational techniques are becoming increasingly important. Problem solving and modelling is quickly achievable but as the power of computers increases so does the complexity of the tasks and the speed at which they are solved. A basic understanding of the theory and concepts underpinning computational chemistry is therefore essential to all chemical science students, and Essentials of Computational Chemistry: Theory and Models delivers a thorough insight in a readable and approachable manner. * Accessible as a text to advanced undergraduate students as well as graduate students * Emphasises the basic concepts and applications rather than theory and mathematics * Firmly places the subject in context, including many examples and applications * Includes coverage and examples from inorganic, organic and biological chemistry and covers quantum mechanical and classical mechanical models * Includes case histories that serve as an ideal basis for classroom discussion * Delivers information in a readable and approachable manner

This book gives an extensive description of the state-of-the-art in research on excited-state hydrogen bonding and hydrogen transfer in recent years. Initial chapters present both the experimental and theoretical investigations on the excited-state hydrogen bonding structures and dynamics of many organic and biological chromophores. Following this, several chapters describe the influences of the excited-state hydrogen bonding on various photophysical processes and photochemical reactions, for example: hydrogen bonding effects on fluorescence emission behaviors and photoisomerization; the role of hydrogen bonding in photosynthetic water splitting; photoinduced electron transfer and solvation dynamics in room temperature ionic liquids; and hydrogen bonding barrier crossing dynamics at bio-mimicking surfaces. Finally, the book examines experimental and theoretical studies on the nature and control of excited-state hydrogen transfer in various systems. Hydrogen Bonding and Transfer in the Excited State is an essential overview of this increasingly important field of study, surveying the entire field over 2 volumes, 40 chapters and 1200 pages. It will find a place on the bookshelves of researchers in photochemistry, photobiology, photophysics, physical chemistry and chemical physics.
