Fundamental Coordination Ability of s-Block Metal Ions

  • 1st Edition
  • January 1, 2026
  • Masashi Hojo
  • English
Fundamental Coordination Ability of s-Block Metal Ions: New Aspects and Its Role in Solution Reactions s covers the reaction chemistry and coordination chemistry of s-block metal ions in common solutions, crystallization of s-block metal compounds from solutions and their structures, and the biochemistry of s-block ions in living things. The complex formation of s-block metal ions with crown ethers was discovered by J. C. Pederson in 1967, and since then, host-guest chemistry of s-block metal ions have been highly developed. In recent years, many lighter metal coordination polymers have been synthesized actively. In this book, some “salt effects” or abnormal phenomena are accounted for in terms of coordination interaction with s-block metal ions in solution. The mechanism of enhanced oxidation ability of dilute nitric acid is discussed and the dissolution of pure gold in seawater with nitric acid is demonstrated. This important reference book will be useful to inorganic chemists, specifically those working in solution chemistry, main group metal chemistry and supramolecular chemistry, both in industry and academia.

Introduction to Computational Chemistry

  • 1st Edition
  • January 1, 2026
  • John M. Galbraith + 1 more
  • English
Introduction to Computational Chemistry provides a foundational, introductory overview of this critical and important field designed to give students a clear and supportive pathway. It is intended to be a non-mathematics heavy introduction to the methods used in computational chemistry, together with information about how HPC-style computers are set up and utilized for performing calculations. It also provides novel insight into the computational chemist mentality: sometimes, the way computational chemists operate can seem strange to someone not yet immersed in the field. The book starts with a basic discussion of computer functionality through operating systems, system administration, and programming followed by a look at the key computational methods for electronic structure methods and molecular mechanics, hybrid methods, and solid-state materials. For each subject, essential non-mathematical information is first provided so that the reader can immediately begin to effectively use computational chemistry software. This introductory material is followed by a section that provides more theoretical information and then references for the reader wishing to go much deeper. Often this type of book overloads the reader with too much information; this one is set up in such a way as to quickly present essential information regarding the fundamental approaches and applications of computational chemistry to beginners in a down to earth and uncluttered manner, while providing the means and resources for more advanced readers to explore further. Introduction to Computational Chemistry is written primarily for upper level undergraduate and entry level graduate students completely new to the field of computational chemistry, with little background knowledge; the book is well suited to entry level courses at this level.

Introduction to the Mechanochemistry of Solids

  • English
Mechanochemistry is being heralded as a transformation for green and sustainable chemistry by allowing materials and molecules to be synthesized without need for solvent and both more quickly and in higher yields than conventional solution methods. The continued development of mechanochemistry therefore promises to revolutionize the chemical industry and help to tackle global environmental challenges. The potential applications of mechanochemistry are growing rapidly, catalyzed by the growing diversity of scientists entering the field. Therefore, it is crucial to give newcomers to the field a clear overview of the key features of mechanochemistry, many of which seemingly contradict the conventional rules of chemistry. This book provides an outline of the fundamental principles of mechanochemistry in relation to solid-state reactivity as much-needed point of introduction to the field, allowing readers to achieve a better understanding of the processes that take place in a mechanoreactor during and after mechanical action. The book tackles the following key questions: • How and why can mechanical treatment help when solution chemistry fails? • Why might different sample preparation be important for the outcome of mechanical treatment? • Why does treatment in different devices and/or different protocols of mechanical treatment give different results? • When and why does adding fluids matter? • How can we know what happens in a mechanochemical reactor at the moment of treatment? Introduction to the Mechanochemistry of Solids will help expedite the further development of mechanochemistry and achieve the full potential of this transformative technology in the modern world. It is written primarily for advanced undergraduate/early graduate level students and researchers with interest in solid-state chemistry, materials science, sustainable/green chemistry, solid state physics, or applications of solid-state reactivity to industry such as the pharmaceutical and chemical sectors. It provides a much-needed resource for advanced-level courses on the mechanochemistry of solids.
