Linus Pauling wrote a stellar series of over 800 scientific papers spanning an amazing range of fields, some of which he himself initiated. This book is a selection of the most important of his writings in the fields of quantum mechanics, chemical bonding (covalent, ionic, metallic, and hydrogen bonding), molecular rotation and entropy, protein structure, hemoglobin, molecular disease, molecular evolution, the antibody mechanism, the molecular basis of anesthesia, orthomolecular medicine, radiation chemistry/biology, and nuclear structure. Through these papers the reader gets a fresh, unfiltered view of the genius of Pauling's many contributions to chemistry, chemical physics, molecular biology, and molecular medicine. Contents.: The Chemical Bond: Metallic Bonding; Hydrogen Bonding; Crystal and Molecular Structure and Properties: Ionic Crystals and X-Ray Difraction; Molecules in the Gas Phase and Electron Diffraction; Entropy and Molecular Rotation in Crystals and Liquids; and other papers. Readership: Chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists and physicists.10, 254 The Crystal Structure of the Metallic Phase Mg32 (Al, Zn)49* BY GUNNAR BERGMAN, JOHN L. T. WAUGH AND ...
