About Authors

Francis A. Carey is a native of Philadelphia, educated at Drexel University (B.S. in chemistry),and at Penn State (Ph.D.). Following postdoctoral work at Harvard and military service, he served on the faculty of the University of Virginia from 1966 until retiring as Professor Emeritus in 2000.
In addition to this text, Professor Carey is coauthor (with Robert C. Atkins) of Organic Chemistry: A Brief Course and (with Richard J. Sundberg) of Advanced Organic Chemistry , a two-volume treatment designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Frank and his wife Jill, who is a teacher/director of a preschool and a church organist, are the parents of Andy, Bob, and Bill and the grandparents of Riyad and Ava. Robert M. Giuliano was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania and attended Penn State (B.S. in chemistry) and the University of Virginia (Ph.D., under the direction of Francis Carey). Following postdoctoral studies with Bert Fraser-Reid at the University of Maryland, he joined the chemistry department faculty of Villanova University in 1982, where he is currently Professor. His research interests are in synthetic organic and carbohydrate chemistry, and in functionalized carbon nanomaterials. Bob and his wife Margot, an elementary and preschool teacher he met while attending UVa, are the parents of Michael, Ellen, and Christopher.


Molecular Conformations      

    Christopher Wood


The second edition of Molecular Conformations presents the latest science in the molecular biology of protein folding. A new section contains the latest developments in establishing the mechanisms that control protein folding and – when things go wrong – protein degradation. While the new section is more scientifically involved that the original sections, it has been written in a way that puts the emphasis on general concepts.

Chemistry: Quantum Mechanics and Spectroscopy II

Tutorial Questions and Solutions


The book covers the physical-chemistry aspects of quantum mechanics and spectroscopy in years 1-3 of a typical university degree in chemistry, chemical-physics, chemical engineering, biology or biochemistry. The lectures, tutorials and laboratory experiments I developed and gave on quantum mechanics and spectroscopy to our first, second and third year chemistry students over many years at the Chemistry Department, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland have formed the basis for book. The feedback from students was an important part of this process. The book is also a useful reference source for graduates in their later professional careers. The book has a companion text which has tutorial and workshop questions with full and complete solutions including considerable extra background material that clarifies the solutions.
