Hydrogen Bonding New Insights is an extensive text which takes numerous examples from experimental studies and uses these to illustrate theoretical investigations to allow a greater understanding of hydrogen bonding phenomenon. The most important topics in recent studies are considered including:
- Intra-molecular H-bonds
- Differences between H-bond and van der Waals interactions from one side and covalent bonds from the other
- Bader theory to analyze H-bonding
- Influence of weak H-bonds upon structure and function of biological molecules
- H-bonds in crystal structures
With contributions from some of the foremost experts in this field this volume provides an invaluable resource for all members of the academic community looking for a comprehensive text on hydrogen bonding. It will be of particular interest to physical and theoretical chemists, spectroscopists, crystallographers and those involved with chemical physics.
