Overview

This volume contains most of the invited lectures of the 2nd Structural Chemistry Indaba on "Molecular Interactions," held at Skukuza, Kruger Park, South Africa, August 3- 8, 1997. While the 1995 conference concentrated more on the principles underlying molecular modeling, like the existence of a molecular shape, this conference centers on molecular interactions or, more generally, on molecules in environments. Unfortunately, it was impossible, for various reasons, to unite all invited lectures in this volume, but nevertheless this collection contains contributions ranging from the fundamental quantum mechanical theory to recent research on organometallic crystals. For a summary, I would like to refer the reader to the introductory chapter by S.O. Sommerer, based on his concluding remarks at the conference.

Contains most of the invited lectures of the 2nd Structural Chemistry Indaba held at Skukuza, Kruger Park, South Africa in August 1997. Focusing on molecules in environments, the 12 papers address experimental, theory/computational, and data mining research. Topics include chemical reactions in the framework of single quantum systems, atomic interactions and the charge density, cyclometallation of alkylphosphines, recent research on organometallic crystals, the adjustment of van der Waals constants, and reactivity in solid state and electron deformation density determinations.
