Handbook of Electronic Structure Theory provides a much-needed learning resource that collects and demonstrates the various key methods involved in electronic structure theory, the feasibility and reliability of electronic structure calculations and their applications using computational chemistry, with a particular focus on the most modern and recent problems which are poorly covered in existing, largely outdated book literature. This handbook is designed with early career researcher learning in mind by aiming to provide a careful, structured, coherent, measured, and incremental presentation of the subject matter as well as appropriate problems and worked tutorial examples. Elements like summary boxes, worked examples, and downloadable data sets make this a holistic guide to the topic for learners from different backgrounds who require a deeper understanding of electronic structure theory. Part I one of the book focuses on the critical core theories, before Part II moves on to some of the most important recent developments and their potential future directions, including key topics such as the electronic excited states and the harnessing of machine learning. Finally, Part III then collects a range of key case study examples of applications such as for biomolecules, in spectroscopy, or for use in catalysis amongst others. Handbook of Electronic Structure Theory is written primarily for masters, PhD, and postdoctoral students in theoretical and computational chemistry as well as experimental researchers wishing to apply quantum chemical methods in a critical way. The book will also have significant relevance to those studying and teaching in the adjacent fields of computational physics, materials science, and astrochemistry, who are making use of electronic structure methods. It is also likely to be of interest to chemists working on designing new materials and compounds targeting industrial and environmental applications such as catalysis, energy harvesting or green chemistry.

Water-Stable Metal-Organic Frameworks (WSMOFs) presents water-stable metal-organic frameworks for mitigating environmental pollutants, i.e. sensing and degradation/removal applications to protect the ecological system, both environmental and aquatic life, from various types of toxic pollutants released from industries. The pressing challenge of extracting common pollutants, including heavy metal ions, anions, oil, and radionuclides from water sources is a critical issue due to the widespread problem of environmental contamination. Various approaches have been explored for this purpose, such as sorbents, chemical precipitation, and traditional membrane separation. However, these methods often suffer from inadequate selectivity and low pollutant uptake.Developing water-stable MOFs is the key to advancing effective water purification techniques, but the primary challenge lies in crafting MOF structures that can maintain their stability when exposed to water.

Density Functional Theory: Fundamental Theory, Key Methods, and Applications provides a thorough and detailed explanation and overview of this important computational quantum mechanical modeling method and its applications. The book's chapters are structured to be easier to understand and more accessible to the target audience. Split into three distinct sections, it examines foundational knowledge surrounding DFT, covering key concepts such as the Thomas-Fermi model and Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham theory, exchange-correlation functionals, the advantages and disadvantages of DFT compared to MO theory, and other methods before exploring areas of future DFT development.The second section then examines practical methods and approaches for DFT, looking at the types of density functionals such as LSDA, GGA and meta-GGA functionals, hybrid functionals, DFTB methods, dispersion corrected functionals, Time-Dependent DFT, and the Plane-wave approach. It also looks at relations between DFT and ab initio molecular dynamics and the QM/MM approach. The final section then focuses on applications and some useful case studies of use of DFT in different areas, whilst weighing up strengths and weaknesses in such applications.

Chemical Receptor Sensory Systems explores chemosenses through the lens of pharmacologic theory, and how chemosensory systems, from the molecular level to the behavior of organisms, must behave given that their operations are functions of receptor pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. Throughout the book, information on concentration-dependence of chemical stimulation and likely relationship to receptor occupancy is strongly emphasized. In cases where a departure from expected pharmacologic behavior is encountered in the chemosenses, the discussion is directed toward probable explanations for the apparent disconnect. This book provides a new resource that on all chemosenses topics within a unifying conceptual framework of the science of pharmacology. It will be useful to a variety of researchers and graduate students in pharmacology, biology and physiology of sensory systems, researchers in sensory psychology, research scientists in food & nutritional scientists, as well as clinical staff.
