Diffuse X-ray scattering is a rich (virtually untapped) source of local structural information over and above that obtained by conventional crystallography. The book aims to show how computer simulation of a model crystal provides a general method by which diffuse scattering of all kinds and from all types of materials can be interpreted and analysed.

'... there has long been a need for a dedicated monograph on the subject... a highly readable book about a theory that, though it has long found application in inorganic crystal chemistry, deserves to be used more widely.' Crystallography NewsThe bond valence model is a recently developed model of the chemical bond in inorganic chemistry that complements the bond model widely used in organic chemistry. It is simple, quantitative, intuitive, and predictive - no more than a pocket calculator is needed to calculate it. This book focuses on the theory that underlies the model, and shows how it has been used in physics, materials science, chemistry, mineralogy, soil science, and molecular biology.

Fundamentals of Crystallography

Crystallography and structure theory have recently received increasing interest due to their role in understanding biological structures, high-temperature superconductors, and effects on mineral properties related to changes in temperature and pressure. This text offers an account of the wide range of crystallography in various branches of science.The fundamentals, the most frequently used procedures, and experimental techniques are all described, and a number of appendices are devoted to more specialist aspects. The book is an updated edition with emphasis on the range of topical applications. Illustrations should help to clarify the subject matter. To provide a better understanding of the basics of crystallography, a compact disk has been added to this edition, offering the facilities of modern graphics to simulate experiments, show complex images, and provide a number of exercises.

The Nature of the Hydrogen Bond

Outline of a Comprehensive Hydrogen Bond Theory

Hydrogen bond (H-bond) effects are known: it makes sea water liquid, joins cellulose microfibrils in trees, shapes DNA into genes and polypeptide chains into wool, hair, muscles or enzymes. Its true nature is less known and we may still wonder why O-H...O bond energies range from less than 1 to more than 30 kcal/mol without apparent reason. This H-bond puzzle is re-examined here from its very beginning and presented as an inclusive compilation of experimental H-bond energies and geometries. New concepts emerge from this analysis: new classes of systematically strong H-bonds (CAHBs and RAHBs: charge- and resonance-assisted H-bonds); full H-bond classification in six classes (the six chemical leitmotifs); and assessment of the covalent nature of strong H-bonds. This leads to three distinct but inter-consistent models able to rationalize the H-bond and predict its strength, based on classical VB theory, matching of donor-acceptor acid-base parameters (PA or pKa), or shape of the H-bond proton-transfer pathway. Applications survey a number of systems where strong H-bonds play an important functional role, namely drug-receptor binding, enzymatic catalysis, ion-transport through cell membranes, crystal design and molecular mechanisms of functional materials.

Dieses für den deutschen Raum einzigartige Lehrbuch richtet sich an Studenten der Pharmazie, Chemie und Biowissenschaften, aber auch an Quereinsteiger in Forschungs- und Entwicklungsabteilungen der Pharmazeutischen Industrie. Die zweite Auflage ist komplett überarbeitet. Zahlreiche aktuelle Entwicklungen vor allem im methodischen Bereich sind zum Teil in neuen Kapiteln aufgegriffen, viele Fallbeispiele machen die Theorien und Verfahren anschaulich und nachvollziehbar. Der Bogen spannt sich von der Geschichte der Arzneimittelforschung, den Wirkmechanismen der Arzneistoffe und den Methoden zur Leitstruktursuche und -optimierung über Strukturbestimmungsmethoden, Modelling, Moleküldynamik und QSAR-Methoden bis zum struktur- und computergestützten Design. Insgesamt legt das Buch besonderen Wert auf die räumliche Struktur der interagierenden Moleküle und erklärt, warum ein bestimmter Wirkstoff in seiner Gestalt praktisch durch die Geometrie und den Wirkmechanismus des Zielproteins festgelegt wird. Die beiliegende DVD mit interaktiven Molekülmodellen dient dem Ziel, dem Lernenden einen leichten Zugang zum räumlichen Verständnis der molekularen Strukturen und Interaktionen zu geben.

Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser Titel erschien in der Zeit vor 1945 und wird daher in seiner zeittypischen politisch-ideologischen Ausrichtung vom Verlag nicht beworben.
