Molecular Modelling for Beginners is a concise, self-contained introduction to modelling and computational chemistry. Assuming only a basic knowledge of physical chemistry, physics and mathematics, relevant introductory material is provided to ensure greater accessibility to this exciting subject. Carefully structured, the text begins by presenting the fundamental theories that are based on classical mechanics, classical electrostatics and statistical thermodynamics. The focus is on Molecular Mechanics, Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics.
Emphasis is given to discovery chemistry and QSAR, and the text successfully combines essential theory with relevant applications and examples designed to encourage student understanding.
This text will appeal to those students taking undergraduate courses in chemistry, biochemistry and materials science who want to explore the latest techniques of molecular modelling.
"...fun to read and is a very nice reference...a recommended read..." (Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals, Volume 442, 2005)
"...the narrative is unassuming and written as if the author is addressing the reader directly.... Hinchliffe succeeds in giving the reader an appreciation of the incredible complexity involved in making molecular predictions." (E-STREAMS, July 2004)
"This is a well produced, well written book that I have no hesitation in recommending to a beginner in molecular modeling.” (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Vol. 47 No. 12)
