Book Description

9 May 1996 0198558937 978-0198558934
Every serious student of chemistry should try to develop a `feel' for the way molecules behave - for the way they are put together and especially for the rules of engagement which operate when molecules meet and react. This primer describes how stereoelectronic effects control this behaviour. It is the only concise text on this topic at an undergraduate level. This is an important subject area and the comprehensive yet concise coverage in this book shows students how to build up a powerful but simple way of thinking about chemistry.

Product Description


The subject is presented authoritatively, systematically and concisely without resort to mathematical treatment. As this subject is often given little coverage in textbooks or organic chemistry this text is to be welcomed. (Aslib Book Guide, vol.61, no.11, November 1996)

This book is a useful introduction to stereo-electronic effects in organic chemistry. The style is engaging ... this book is an excellent supplementary text for undergraduates. Sponsorship for the series by Zeneca also ensures that it is extremely good value for money. (Chemistry in Britain, September 1997)

engaging critique of biography .... enjoyable and thought provoking (New Scientist)

A molecule's bonding electrons serve not only as its skeleton, but also as a rudimentary nervous system. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars A good intro text 1 Jun 2001
By Kevin L. Greenman - Published on
Kirby's Stereoelectronic effects provides a good introduction to the fundamentals of molecular orbital interactions. Makes a nice supplement to advanced organic chemistry texts that are deficient in this area

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for new grad students 8 Oct 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are an organic synthesis student, then this is for you. It has enough information to get the point across and to introduce you to the ideas of HOMO-LUMO, while at the same time not overload you with excruciating details.
5.0 out of 5 stars Kirby Works Magic 24 Sep 2009
By S. Schwanger - Published on
In the physical organic chemistry course I have been taking, we have been talking all about stereoelectronic effects and molecular orbitals. I was having trouble with frontier molecular orbital theory as it relates to stereoelectronic effects and was not finding helpful explanations in other texts I was consulting. A friend recommended I read Kirby, and I am so glad she did. Kirby offers in-depth explanations of stereoelectronic phenomena in a useful and understandable manner. This is a great addition to any organic chemist's library.
