Winner of the PROSE Award for Chemistry & Physics 2010 Acknowledging the very best in professional and scholarlypublishing, the annual PROSE Awards recognise publishers' andauthors' commitment to pioneering works of research and forcontributing to the conception, production, and design of landmarkworks in their fields. Judged by peer publishers, librarians, andmedical professionals, Wiley are pleased to congratulate ProfessorIan Fleming, winner of the PROSE Award in Chemistry and Physics for Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions. Molecular orbital theory is used by chemists to describe thearrangement of electrons in chemical structures. It is also atheory capable of giving some insight into the forces involved inthe making and breaking of chemical bonds the chemicalreactions that are often the focus of an organic chemist'sinterest. Organic chemists with a serious interest in understandingand explaining their work usually express their ideas in molecularorbital terms, so much so that it is now an essential component ofevery organic chemist's skills to have some acquaintance withmolecular orbital theory.

Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions is botha simplified account of molecular orbital theory and a review ofits applications in organic chemistry; it provides a basicintroduction to the subject and a wealth of illustrative examples.In this book molecular orbital theory is presented in a muchsimplified, and entirely non-mathematical language, accessible toevery organic chemist, whether student or research worker, whethermathematically competent or not. Topics covered include: Molecular Orbital Theory Molecular Orbitals and the Structures of Organic Molecules Chemical Reactions How Far and How Fast Ionic Reactions Reactivity Ionic Reactions Stereochemistry Pericyclic Reactions Radical Reactions Photochemical Reactions This expanded Reference Edition of Molecular Orbitals andOrganic Chemical Reactions takes the content and the samenon-mathematical approach of the Student Edition, and addsextensive extra subject coverage, detail and over 1500 references.The additional material adds a deeper understanding of the modelsused, and includes a broader range of applications and casestudies.

Providing a complete in-depth reference for a moreadvanced audience, this edition will find a place on thebookshelves of researchers and advanced students of organic,physical organic and computational chemistry. The student edition of Molecular Orbitals and OrganicChemical Reactions presents molecular orbital theory in asimplified form, and offers an invaluable first textbook on thisimportant subject for students of organic, physical organic andcomputational chemistry. Further information can be viewed here. "These books are the result of years of work, which began as anattempt to write a second edition of my 1976 book Frontier Orbitalsand Organic Chemical Reactions. I wanted to give a rather morethorough introduction to molecular orbitals, while maintaining myfocus on the organic chemist who did not want a mathematicalaccount, but still wanted to understand organic chemistry at aphysical level. I'm delighted to win this prize, and hope a newgeneration of chemists will benefit from these books." - Professor Ian Fleming
