Computers have been applied to problems in chemistry and the chemical sciences since the dawn of the computer age; however, it is only in the past ten or fifteen years that we have seen the emergence of computational chemistry as a field of research in its own right. Its practitioners, computational chemists, are neither chemists who dabble in computing nor programmers who have an interest in chemistry, but computa tional scientists whose aim is to solve a wide range of chemical problems using modern computing machines. This book gives a broad overview of the methods and techniques employed by the computational chemist and of the wide range of problems to which he is applying them. It is divided into three parts. The first part records the basics of chemistry and of computational science that are essential to an understanding of the methods of computational chemistry. These methods are described in the second part of the book. In the third part, a survey is given of some areas in which the techniques of computational chemistry are being applied. As a result of the limited space available in a single volume, the areas covered are necessarily selective. Nevertheless, a sufficiently wide range of applications are described to provide the reader with a balanced overview of the many problems being attacked by computational studies in chemistry.

It's not just test tubes and Bunsen burners anymore. Computers now rank at or near the top of the list of a chemist's most indispensable tools, and it's safe to say that no chemistry student will get very far without a good working knowledge of computers and the concepts of computer programming. Designed specifically to ensure undergraduate chemistry students have this basic proficiency, Computers and Their Applications to Chemistry introduces the fundamentals of computers, then builds a solid foundation in programming using the BASIC programming language and simple examples from chemistry. The author's straightforward approach moves smoothly from simple to complex ideas, from elementary input/output statements through data string manipulation and searching methods to graphics and numerical methods. The last two chapters discuss a variety of available software packages particularly useful in chemistry. Each chapter includes a number of solved examples followed by a set of review questions that reinforce and stimulate interest in the ideas presented.

Computer Chemistry illustrates the methods and philosophies of how a computer can be instructed to "understand" chemical facts, formulas and rules. It focuses on discussions of all of the major sections in both theoretical framework and practical application through examples. It includes the Synthesis Design Systems for the simulation of chemical reactions, the Structure Elucidation Systems for the interpretation of spectral data, the Molecular Modelling Systems for the visualization of chemical structures and the calculation of physico-chemical parameters.

The impact of computers on all rea1ms of Chemistry has been one of the most important factors in the deve10pment of this science during the last years. In recognition of this fact, in 1971, the "First International Conference on Computers in Chemi ca1 Research and Education", was held at DeKa1b, I11inois, USA. A second Conference took p1ace in Ljub1jana, Yugos1avia in 1973 and this third Conference in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1976. The aim of these conferences was to provide a high level forum for the 1eading researchers to exchange information at the frontiers of present day computer app1ications to the different fie1ds of Chemistry. The present "Third International Conference on Computers in Chemica1 Research, Education and Techno10gy", whose proceedings are pub1ished in the present vo1ume, was conceived, by means of aseries of invited 1ectures, as a survey of the present-date state of the art in some of the most relevant areas of computer app1ications in Chemistry.

This is currently the only book available on the development of knowledge-based, and related, expert systems in chemistry and toxicology. Written by a pioneer in the field, it shows how computers can work with qualitative information where precise numerical methods are not satisfactory. An underlying theme is the current concern in society about the conflicts between basing decisions on reasoned judgements and wanting precise decisions and measurable effectiveness. As well as explaining how the computer programs work, the book provides insights into how personal and political factors influence scientific progress. The introduction of regulations such as REACH in Europe and modifications to UN and OECD Guidelines on assessment of chemical hazard mean that the use of toxicity prediction is at a turning point. They put a heavy burden on the chemical industry but, for the first time, allow for the use of computer prediction to support or replace in vivo and in vitro experiments. There is increasing recognition among scientists and regulators that qualitative computer methods have much to offer and that in some circumstances they may be more reliable and informative than quantitative methods. This excellent introduction to a field where employment opportunities are growing is aimed at students, scientists and academics with a knowledge of chemistry.

This versatile introduction to the application of (personal) computers in chemical research activities can be used as a textbook practical manual reference book study guide for independent learning Mathematical solutions and sample programs are presented for a large number of common chemical and physical problems. Computer graphics, the use of PCs in modelling and simulation studies, and data processing are also treated. Although its approach is initially elementary, the book covers most of the mathematical methods needed in research. Practical examples from chemistry, chemical engineering, biology, and pharmacy illustrate these methods. Chemists will find in this comprehensive introduction all the knowledge they need to modify existing programs or to develop new ones to meet their needs. Special feature: Enclosed are two diskettes (in ASCII code) which contain all the programs given in the book in both BASIC and PASCAL. The diskettes are suitable for all IBM-compatible PCs.

The book describes the fundamentals of computers to enable students to develop and write simple programs related to chemistry. The attempt here has been to trigger the interest of the students in the direct application potential of computers in the field of chemistry. The languages discussed are BASIC, FORTRAN and C. Beginning first of a language, the book describes control statements and gives a brief introduction to arrays, functions, sub-routines and sequence common examples and calculations in physical, organic and inorganic chemistry have been presented. More than 150 program ranging from simple to complex, interesting exercises, hints and problems are some special features of the book.
