This up-to-date introduction to the most fundamental ideas of molecular orbital theory leads the reader through a clear and nonmathematical presentation of electronic structure, geometry, and reactivity of molecules. The authors are recognized authorities in this field and their qualitative approach makes this primary text very accessible to advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students. The many diagrams of molecular orbitals provide a great insight into the theoretical ideas more
