This book is intended for those who are taking physical chemistry II in their undergraduate courses. It presents the basics of quantum mechanics as it is relevant to chemistry. This is an excellent introductory book, but ileaves out too much to be useful in research or graduate work. The questions and solution manual are also useful. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321615042, Hardcover)

This full-color, modern physical chemistry reference offers compelling applications and arresting illustrations that capture readers' attention and demonstrate the dynamic nature of the subject. The authors focus on core topics of physical chemistry, presented within a modern framework of applications. Modern applications are drawn from biology, environmental science, and material science.  Spectroscopy applications are introduced early in concert with theory; for example, IR and rotational spectroscopy are discussed immediately after the harmonic oscillator and the rigid rotar. Modern research is featured throughout, along with new developments in the field such as scanning tunneling microscopy, bandgap engineering, quantum wells, teleportation, and quantum computing.

From Classical to Quantum Mechanics; The Schrödinger Equation; The Quantum Mechanical Postulates; Using Quantum Mechanics on Simple Systems; The Particle in the Box and the Real World; Commuting and Noncommuting Operators and the Surprising Consequences; A Quantum Mechanical Model for the Vibration and Rotation of Mole; The Vibrational and Rotational Spectroscopy of Diatomic Molecules; The Hydrogen Atom; Many-Electron Atoms; Quantum States for Many-electron Atoms and Atomic Spectroscopy; The Chemical Bond in Diatomic Molecules; Molecular Structure and Energy Levels for Polyatomic Molecules; Electronic Spectroscopy; Computational Chemistry; Molecular Symmetry; Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.

A useful reference for chemistry professionals.
