This short text is intended for first year undergraduates and introduces some concepts of chemical bonding in a clear, descriptive and essentially non-mathematical fashion. This text will find a place alongside textbooks containing more detailed formal coverage and mathematical descriptions.This book could form the basis of a 8-12 lecture introductory course on chemmcal bonding. The book addresses aspects of atomic orbital structure and uses this to develop a discussion of the bonding in diatomic and polyatomic molecules using Lewis dot structures, hybrid orbital, and molecularorbital methods. The prediction of molecular shape is addresses through the VSEPR method.
Mark J. Winter is at University of Sheffield.
