"[This book] collects together, largely for the first time, a series of chapters dedicated to all the ways in which molecular modeling/computational chemistry can impact organic chemistry."
-Christopher J. Cramer, author of Essentials ofComputational Chemistry: Theories and Models

Computational Organic Chemistry provides a practical overview of the ways in which computational modeling methods and applications can be used in organic chemistry to predict the structure and reactivity of organic molecules. After a concise survey of computational methods, the book presents in-depth case studies that show how various computational methods have provided critical insight into the nature of organic mechanisms. With a focus on methodologies, this unique resource:
*

Discusses simple molecular properties, pericyclic reactions, carbenes and radicals, anion chemistry, solvent effects, and more
*

Features sidebars that offer a personal look at some of the leading practitioners in the field
*

Conveys the strengths and limitations of each method, so that readers develop a feel for the correct "tool" to use in the context of a specific problem
*

Further informs readers with a supporting Web site that provides links to materials cited and features a blog that discusses and provides links to new relevant articles at www.trinity.edu/sbachrac/coc/

This is a great reference for practicing physical organic and computational chemists, as well as a thought-provoking textbook for graduate-level courses in computational chemistry and organic chemistry.

Review:

?This book provides a practical overview of the ways in which computational modeling methods and applications can be used in organic chemistry to predict the structure and reactivity of organic molecules.? (Reviews, May 2009)

The book provides an excellent and authoritative panorama of the various approaches to modelling important organic intermediates and their reactivity. (Organic Process Research and Development Journal, 2008)

 "The strength of the book lies in the very detailed discussion of the case examples, the comparison of different methods?" (Angewandte Chemie, 2008-47/13)

"Both seasoned researchers and interested students will find this book useful." (CHOICE, January 2008)
