Brand: Brand: American Chemical Society
This volume exposes the chemistry community to the critical role that chemistry can and must play in nonlinear optics research. In addition, it brings together those researchers who synthesize and characterize materials from a variety of systems, with those who build devices, giving chemists, physicists, and engineers a greater appreciation for the opportunities that lie ahead in understanding and developing nonlinear optical materials. The volume begins with a discussion of polarizability and hyperpolarizability from the view of a chemist. Tutorial chapters dealing with the fundamental structures and properties of second- and third-order nonlinear optical materials, measurement and characterization of these systems, theoretical considerations, application of these systems to devices, and overviews of the current state of affairs in both organic and inorganic nonlinear optical materials follow.

An authoritative review of the state of the art in the NuclearOverhauser Effect-essential information for organic chemists,biochemists, biophysicists, and NMR spectroscopists
The field of NMR spectroscopy has seen tremendous growth in thelast twenty years, particularly advances relating to NuclearOverhauser Effect (NOE) spectroscopy-the most powerful techniquefor obtaining structural information on molecules in solution.Extensive and engaging, the Second Edition of the leading referenceon the NOE is significantly updated to reflect the latest changesand new approaches in the field.
Neuhaus and Williamson provide an essential guide to thecomplexities and use of the NOE in a readily accessible,straightforward manner. Their practical handbook features a newchapter addressing the use of NOE data to calculate biomolecularstructures. Chapters dealing with the kinetics of the NOE, theeffects of exchange and internal motion, and applications of theNOE, are also extensively revised. Cross-referenced in remarkabledepth, The Nuclear Overhauser Effect is organized into three mainparts:
* Part I describes the theory of the Nuclear Overhauser Effect in aclear, comprehensive fashion
* Part II discusses the considerations involved in implementing NOEexperiments, including full coverage of all necessary details forboth new and established techniques
* Part III offers examples of how the NOE is used, includingapplications to defining molecular geometry, stereochemistry,conformation, and biomolecular structure and interactions
The Nuclear Overhauser Effect in Structural and ConformationalAnalysis, Second Edition, uniquely explains the NOE in detail,making it an indispensable resource for the novice as well as theexperienced NMR researcher.

A unique guide to variable temperature CD spectroscopy and itsapplication in organic chemistry
This timely, original, thought-provoking work looks at organicstereochemistry from the perspective of circular dichroism (CD),using variable temperature CD spectroscopy to determine theconformation or absolute configuration of chiral molecules. With anemphasis on the analysis of optically active ketones and thecarbonyl chromophore, the authors demonstrate the advantages ofthis highly sensitive spectroscopic tool for obtainingstereochemical information in diverse areas of organic chemistry,biochemistry, and medicinal/pharmaceutical chemistry. They combinedetailed examples of stereochemical analysis with clear, thoroughpresentations, correlating chiroptical data with molecularmechanics calculations as well as data from NMR spectroscopy andother spectroscopic techniques. In addition, they provide asystematic survey of the professional literature, featuring anextraordinary collection of original CD spectra run at varyingtemperatures. Coverage includes:
* Chiroptical measurements: CD and ORD (Optical RotatoryDispersion)
* Conformational analysis of compounds ranging from simple cyclicketones to polycyclics
* Conjugated and homoconjugated systems
* Stereochemistry of the carbon-carbon double bond
* Stereochemistry from exciton coupling of two or morechromophores
* An interesting historical account of the development ofstereochemical concepts

What do Schrödinger's wave functions, Escher's intricate tiling patterns and chemistry's latest marvel, buckminsterfullerene, have in common?
This stunning book, written by two world-famous scientists, introduces the reader to one of nature's most fundamental, and ubiquitous, phenomena: Symmetry.
Enormous in scope, this scientific tour-de-force covers topics as diverse as quantum mechanics, stereochemistry, Penrose tilings and Raphael's Madonna. The authors connect these apparently unrelated fields in a completely non-mathematical fashion, which should appeal to the general and specialist reader alike.
Lucidly written and beautifully illustrated, this book provides an eminently readable discussion of the omnipresent concept of symmetry, its application in all branches of science, and its perception in nature, art and elsewhere.
