Notes on molecular orbital calculations by John D Roberts( Book )

For practicing organic chemists the simple, linear-combination-of-atomic-orbitals (LCAO), molecular-orbital method permits useful calculations of semi-empirical electronic energies of unsaturated molecules with no more than high school algebra. Anyone who can find the roots of x^4 - 5x^2 + 4x = 0 graphically, analytically, or by successive substitutions can obtain the energy levels and calculate the [Greek pi]-electron energy of bicyclo[1.1.0]butadiene. [figure of bicyclobutadiene] If in addition he can solve x^4 - 4x^2 = 0, then he can compare bicyclobutadiene with cyclobutadiene and predict what changes the 1, 3 bond would make in the a-electron energies. With no more advanced mathematics, one can compute the bond orders, charge distributions, and reactivity parameters for both free-radical and polar processes. The results may be crude, but they are often highly suggestive; there is no excuse for a modern organic chemist not to be able to use the LCAO method. The notes that make up this book have been used for many years at the California Institute of Technology to introduce seniors and graduate students to the elements of the simple LCAO method. A fairly large number of exercises are interspersed in the text to illustrate important points. It is recommended that these be solved as encountered. Some of the problems are hoped to be suggestive of possible research problems in the field. These Notes are not intended as a complete course of study and should be supplemented by the reference works listed in the Bibliography. No attempt has been made to survey the recent literature. The purpose has been to provide a practical introduction. As a result no appropriate acknowledgement to either the priority of ideas or to their development has been given

Organic chemistry : methane to macromolecules by John D Roberts( Book )

45 editions published between 1971 and 1978 in 4 languages and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the present work we have tried to paint an interesting, relevant, and up-to-date picture of organic chemistry while retaining the rigorous approach of the earlier books. Organic chemistry sometimes appears to be enormously complex to the beginning student, particularly if he must immediately grapple with the subjects of structural isomerism and nomenclature. We have attempted to avoid this difficulty in the following way. Chapter 1 briefly relates carbon to its neighbors in the Periodic Table and reviews some fundamental concepts. Chapter 2 deals with the four C1 and C2 hydrocarbons-methane, ethane, ethene, and ethyne-and discusses their conformational and configurational properties and some of their chemical reactions. The reader thus makes an acquaintance with the properties of some important organic compounds before dealing in an open-ended way with families of compounds-alkanes, alcohols, etc. A heavy emphasis on spectroscopy is retained but the subject is introduced somewhat later than in the earlier books. Important additions are chapters dealing with enzymic processes and metabolism and with cyclization reactions. Many of the exercises of the earlier books have been retained and have been supplemented with drill-type problems. It seems a shame to burden the mind of the beginning student with trivial names, some of them quite illogical, and throughout we have stressed IUPAC nomenclature, which is both logical and easy to learn. The instructor, who may well carry lightly the excess baggage of redundant names, may occasionally find this irritating but we ask him to consider the larger good. As a further aid to the student, each chapter concludes with a summary of important points. The simple introduction to the subject and the emphasis on relevance, particularly to living systems, should make the book appealing to the general student. At the same time we hope that the up-to-date and more advanced topics that are included-the effect of orbital symmetry on cyclization reactions, for example-will also appeal to the chemistry specialist

From Puritanism to Platonism in seventeenth century England by J. Deotis Roberts( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research of Professor J.D. Roberts has interested me for several years. It has interested me because he has been working in a really rich area of intellectual history. Even before Professor Whitehead taught us to speak of the seventeenth century as the "century of genius," many of us looked with wonder on the creativity of the men who produced religious and philosophical literature in that period of contro versy and of power. It was, in a most unusual way, a flowering time of the human spirit. The present volume is devoted to one fascinating chapter in the history of ideas. We know now, far better than we knew a generation ago, how incendiary Puritan ideas really were. They had tremendous consequences, many of which continue to this day, in spite of the absurd caricature of Puritanism, which is popularly accepted. The best of Milton's contemporaries were great thinkers as well as great doers
