Classical and Geometrical Theory of Chemical and Phase Thermodynamics by Frank Weinhold

Book Description

Because it is grounded in math, chemical thermodynamics is often perceived as a difficult subject and many students are never fully comfortable with it. The first authoritative textbook presentation of equilibrium chemical and phase thermodynamics in a reformulated geometrical framework, Chemical and Phase Thermodynamics shows how this famously difficult subject can be accurately expressed with only elementary high-school geometry concepts. Featuring numerous suggestions for research-level extensions, this simplified alternative to standard calculus-based thermodynamics expositions is perfect for undergraduate and beginning graduate students as well as researchers.

Discovering Chemistry with Natural Bond Orbitals by Frank Weinhold Discovering Chemistry with Natural Bond Orbitals, Paperback (July 2012)

This book explores chemical bonds, their intrinsic energies, and the corresponding dissociation energies which are relevant in reactivity problems. It offers the first book on conceptual quantum chemistry, a key area for understanding chemical principles and predicting chemical properties.

Valency and Bonding by Frank Weinhold Valency and Bonding, Hardback (June 2005)

The first modernized overview of chemical valency and bonding theory, based on current computational technology.

Author Biography - Frank Weinhold

Frank Weinhold received his PhD from Harvard and held postdoctoral and teaching appointments at Oxford, Berkeley, and Stanford before moving to the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1976, where he served as Professor of Chemistry and a member of the Theoretical Chemistry Institute until achieving emeritus status in 2007. He is the author of more than 170 technical publications and software packages, including the Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) analysis program, widely incorp-orated in modern ab initio quantum chemistry packages. In addition to the metric geo-metric theory of equilibrium thermodynamics, Dr. Weinhold's research examines upper and lower bounds for quantum-mechanical properties, complex-coordinate rotation methods for autoionizing resonances, and quantum cluster equilibrium descriptions of water and other H-bonded fluids.
