The Spencer text is the only text that is built on independently researched pedagogy on the best way to teach General Chemistry. Chemistry: Structure and Dynamics, 5th Edition emphasizes deep understanding rather than comprehensive coverage along with a focus on the development of inquiry and reasoning skills. While most mainstream General Chemistry texts offer a breadth of content coverage, the Spencer author team, in contrast, focuses on depth and reader preparation for future studies. The fifth edition is revised in keeping with our commitment to the chemical education community and specifically the POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning) Project. This text reflects two core principles, first that the concepts that are covered are fundamental building blocks for understanding chemistry and second, that the concepts should be perceived by the readers as being directly applicable to their interests and careers. The authors further provide this "core" coverage using 1 of 3 models; data-driven, chemical theories and reader understanding, which allows for a more concrete foundation on which readers build conceptual understanding.

The second edition of Spencer's Chemistry: Structure and Dynamics has been the most successful reform project published for the General Chemistry course. The authors have revised the text, by building on the recommendations of the ACS's Task Force on the General Chemistry Curriculum and suggestions from the adopters of the first edition. This innovative text provides a fifteen-chapter introduction to the fundamental concepts of Chemistry. A collection of additional topics at the end of each chapter allow instructors to supplement and tailor their courses according to individual need. Three major themes link the content of the book: the process of science, the relationship between molecular structure and physical/chemical properties, and the relationship between the microscopic and macroscopic levels.

Promote a spirit of scientific discovery New scientific discoveries do not usually begin with models; they begin with data and a spirit of intellectual curiosity. In much the same way, Spencer, Bodner, and Rickard's Chemistry: Structure & Dynamics, Third Edition presents data, and challenges students to derive the models. Built on the recommendations of the American Chemical Society's Task Force on the General Chemistry Curriculum, this innovative approach helps students get a feel for how chemists approach problems in the real world. This Third Edition is now revised with a new chapter on materials science and increased coverage of nuclear chemistry. Here's how it works: * Data-driven approach: Unlike traditional books that present theory, questions, and then applications, this text starts with the data and derives the theory from it. Students start with observations, just like scientists. * Concise, flexible format: The text is briefer than most current general chemistry texts. Coverage focuses on the core topics of general chemistry, with optional coverage of special topics also available. * An emphasis on core themes: These themes include the process of science, the relationship between molecular structure and physical/chemical properties, and the relationship between the microscopic and macroscopic levels. Also available Chemistry: A Guided Inquiry, 3rd Edition By Richard S. Moog and John J. Farrell ISBN: 0-471-69941-1 Using a classroom-guided inquiry approach, this ideal accompaniment to Chemistry: Structure & Dynamics features 62 ChemActivities covering all the core general chemistry topics. These ChemActivities provide a variety of ways to promote a student-focused, active classroom.

Recent advances in the study of structural and dynamic properties of solutions have provided a molecular picture of solute-solvent interactions. Although the study of thermodynamic as well as electronic properties of solutions have played a role in the development of research on the rate and mechanism of chemical reactions, such macroscopic and microscopic properties are insufficient for a deeper understanding of fast chemical and biological reactions. In order to fill the gap between the two extremes, it is necessary to know how molecules are arranged in solution and how they change their positions in both the short and long range. This book has been designed to meet these criteria. It is possible to develop a sound microscopic picture for reaction dynamics in solution without molecular-level knowledge of how reacting ionic or neutral species are solvated and how rapidly the molecular environment is changing with time. A variety of actual examples is given as to how and when modern molecular approaches can be used to solve specific solution problems. The following tools are discussed: x-ray and neutron diffraction, EXAFS, and XANES, molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo computer simulations, Raman, infrared, NMR, fluorescence, and photoelectron emission spectroscopic methods, conductance and viscosity measurements, high pressure techniques, and statistical mechanics methods. Static and dynamic properties of ionic solvation, molecular solvation, ion-pair formation, ligand exchange reactions, and typical organic solvents are useful for bridging the gap between classical thermodynamic studies and modern single-molecule studies in the gas phase. The book will be of interest to solution, physical, inorganic, analytical and structural chemists as well as to chemical kineticists.

The investigative assault upon the enigmatic asphaltenes has recently resulted in sig nificant advances in many varied disciplines. Taken individually, each discipline exposes certain facets of asphaltenes, but each, alone, can never reveal asphaltenes from all van tages. Even seemingly narrowly focused issues such as the molecular structures of asphal tenes, or the colloidal structures of asphaltenes require a confluence of many lines of investigation to yield an understanding which differs from truth by diminishing uncer tainty. An holistic treatment of the asphaltenes is a powerful approach to evolve further their understanding. For example, examination of asphaltenes at the highest resolution yields molecular structure. A slight increase in scale probes asphaltene colloidal structure. Weaving together asphaltene studies performed at different length scales results in a fabric which envelops an encompassing vision of asphaltenes. At the same time, the interfaces of these hierarchical studies provide additional constraints on imagination, more than investi gations at individual length scales alone. These considerations shaped the timing, format, and the content of our book. The editors are very appreciative of the diligence and hard work manifest in each of the contributed chapters herein. We thank the contributing authors for making this project a success. Oliver C. Mullins Eric Y. Sheu vii CONTENTS I. Asphaltenes: Types and Sources ...................................... .

This NATO-ASI on BIOPOLYMERS STRUCTURE AND DYNAMICS held between 22nd June 4th July 1986 at Erice (Italy) has brought together scientists from a broad variety of biophysical disciplines - polymer physics, biophysics and physical chemistry, structure and dynamics of polynucleotides, proteins, and polysaccharides - to present the current state of knowledge in their fields, both experimental and theoretical. This Advanced Study Institute was indeed a successfull attempt to enhance the possibility of intersection of a number of research lines that currently are progressing well but are still running largely in parallel with one another: protein folding, single-polymer phase transitions, DNA condensation into liquid crystalline-like arrays, packaging in viruses, and polysaccharide gel formation. Although each phenomenon is distinctive, an awareness of similarities may lead to new ic;leas. The program has emphasized "condensed" forms of biopolymers. We are universally confronted in biology by chain polymers folded on themselves or interlinked in gel-like assemblies, whether we look at the native structure of proteins, the role of polysaccharides in connective tissue, or the genetic apparatus. A number of lectures have been devoted to condensed forms of DNA - closed circular supercoils, toruses, chromatin.

Introducing the application of free energy correlations to elucidating the mechanisms of organic and bio-organic reactions, this book provides a new and illuminating way of approaching a potentially complex topic. The idea of how free energy correlations derive from polar substituent change is introduced, and common pitfalls encountered in the application of free energy relationships are described, along with the use of these anomalies in mechanistic studies. The concept of effective charge is described in detail, with examples of its application. Throughout, worked answers are provided for the problems posed. Databases of parameters, an extensive bibliography and comprehensive lists of further reading are also included. The text provides an invaluable source of information to senior undergraduates, postgraduates and to industrial researchers with an interest in mechanistic studies. It is the first such book in more than thirty years.

Molecular dynamics is an important technique with applications in many areas including those of drug design, protein engineering, macromolecular structure determination and molecular recognition. This book concentrates on these exciting applications while summarizing briefly the essential mathematical background. Results are presented on protein, carbohydrate and nucleotide modelling and dynamics using the standard molecular dynamics and related algorithms. There are also chapters covering two relatively new applications namely the simulated annealing protocol which has revolutionized macromolecular structure determination from both nmr spectroscopy and x-ray crystallography and the free energy perturbation method with its direct applications relevant to the design of drugs and mutant proteins.
