About this book

Introduction

Computational chemistry is a rapidly developing discipline. This is due to the development of faster algorithms and the increasing power of computers. This book explores the novel applications of these computational tools by focusing on studies which feature chemical and biochemical reactions at various scales and environments. Kinetics and Dynamics: from Nano- to Bio-Scale presents numerous examples which range from simple reactions in the gas phase to polymerization to complex biochemical systems. The reader is shown how the complexity of these systems necessitates the use of different theoretical approaches and methodologies hence broadening our understanding of these fundamental phenomena.

Kinetics and Dynamics: from Nano- to Bio- Scale consists of a collection of chapters written by experts in the field. Their contributions have been selected to illustrate a variety of systems and techniques. Whilst it is impossible to be exhaustive on this subject within a single volume, an attempt has been made to describe different systems of interest in the life sciences.

This book provides contemporary and comprehensive reference material. It is useful for graduate students as well as independent scientists either entering the field of computational chemistry for the first time or those who are aiming to augment their expertise.
