Summary

Over recent decades, the increase in computational resources, coupled with the popularity of competitive quantum mechanics alternatives (particularly DFT), has promoted the widespread penetration of quantum mechanics calculations into a variety of fields targeting the reactivity of molecules. This book presents a selection of original research papers and review articles illustrating diverse applications of quantum mechanics in the study of problems involving molecules and their reactivity.
