By Errol G. Lewars
The objective of this e-book is to survey a couple of chemical substances that chemists, either theoretical and experimental, locate attention-grabbing. a few of these compounds, like planar carbon species or oxirene, provide no visible sensible purposes; nitrogen oligomers and polymers, against this, were touted as attainable high-energy-density fabrics. What unites this differently eclectic assortment is that those ingredients are unknown and provide a problem to concept and to synthesis. it really is estimated that this choice of idiosynchractic molecules will entice chemists who locate the learn of chemical oddities fascinating and, once in a while, even rewarding.
"A nice romp via imagined molecules, a problem to the skills of man-made chemists! Errol Lewars leads us expertly via a wonderland of the chemical mind's eye, interesting molecular buildings that don't (yet) exist!"

"This publication is a tutorial and stress-free learn, dedicated to species at the fringes of chemical, calculation and conceptual plausibility"
