During the years surrounding the new millennium, the field of vibrational optical activity (VOA),
comprised principally of vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) and vibrational Raman optical activity
(ROA), underwent a transition from a specialized area of research that had been practiced by a handful
of pioneers into an important newfield of spectroscopy practiced by an increasing number of scientists
worldwide. This transition was made possible by the development of commercial instrumentation and
software for the routine measurement and quantum chemical calculation ofVOA.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Study guide and solutions manual to accompany organic chemistry" presents the following contents: The basics-bonding and molecular structure; families of carbon compounds-functional groups, intermolecular forces, and infrared (IR) spectroscopy; acids and bases-an introduction to organic reactions and their mechanisms; stereochemistry-chiral molecules,...
Crystal growth is an important process, which forms the basis for a wide variety of natural phenomena and engineering developments. This book provides a unique opportunity for a reader to gain knowledge about various aspects of crystal growth from advanced inorganic materials to inorganic/organic composites, it unravels some problems of molecular crystallizations and shows advances in growth of pharmaceutical crystals, it tells about biomineralization of mollusks and cryoprotection of living cells, it gives a chance to learn about statistics of chiral asymmetry in crystal structure....
