Group theory for chemists Fundamental theory and applications Second edition K C Molloy, University of Bath, UK ‘...this book provides a structured approach with regular problem-solving to assess understanding along the way. Developed from a highly successful lecture course, the text contains some interesting examples and tricks to help students cut through the mathematical barriers to understanding... This approach provides an effective self-learning tool for students.’ Education in Chemistry ‘The author does a wonderful job of introducing group theory to those who have had no exposure to this topic.’ Choice

This undergraduate text deals with the basics of group theory and its application to the analysis of vibrational spectra, and a molecular orbital description of bonding. It also links the topics to ligand field theory, properties of transition metal complexes and other themes within inorganic chemistry. The author has interspersed selfassessment questions at key stages in the text and further problem exercises for self-assessment have been set at the end of most chapters, with solutions and tutorial hints included. Concise, mathematically friendly and with a pictorial approach, the book is based on the author’s long experience of teaching a successful lecture course. 232 pages 234 x 156mm (6 x 9) paperback 2010 ISBN: 978 0 85709 240 3 E-ISBN: 978 0 85709 241 0 £35.00/US$60.00/€40.00 www.woodheadpublishing.com/9780857092403
