Abstract

This book is intended to provide a reasonably complete introduction to atomic and molecular structure and bonding for science students. Parts of the book are revised and expanded versions of appropriate sections from Basic Principles of Chemistry, which I coauthored with Gilbert P. Haight, Jr. The basic approach of using illustrations profusely in presenting concepts has been retained in this monograph. The material on molecular structure is organized roughly in order of molecular size, proceeding from diatomic molecules in Chapter 3 to the "infinitely large" atomic clusters in Chapter 6, which deals with the structures of solids. Although Chapter 3 is loaded with "teaching molecules" (simple molecules observed only at high temperatures and low pressures), the emphasis in the rest of the book is on "real molecules." Each chapter concludes with a large selection of questions and problems.

Additional Information:© Harry B. Gray. With this edition, University Science Books becomes the publisher of Chemi­cal Bonds: An Introduction to Atomic and Molecular Structure. We thank the publisher, Bruce Armbruster, for his interest in chemistry and chemical education. I should like to thank especially Dr. James L. Hall and Mr. John R. Nelson, who edited the manuscript and made helpful critical comments on each of the several drafts of the manuscript. I am also grateful to Mr. Michael Bertolucci, who read the final draft and offered additional comments and verified the latest values of physical data from several literature sources. At this point an author usually says he must, of course, take responsibility for any remaining errors and impossibly incoherent sections. With all due respect, I should like to share this responsibility with Jim, John, and Mike. So, students and other readers, write and let us know what you think of the book.
