Volume 2 of the 5-volume Quantum Nanochemistry presents in a balanced manner the fundamental and advanced concepts, principles, and models as well as their first and novel combinations and applications in quantum (physical) and chemical theory of atomic structure. It exposes the atom’s perspective of quantum structures, spanning its diverse analytical predictions by historical and in-depth quantum analysis of the atomic periodicities of the atomic radii, ionization potential, electron affinity, electronegativity, and chemical hardness, along with the recently consecrated electrophilicity and chemical action—as the main global reactivity indices are assessed when next judging the chemical reactivity through their associate principles.
"As varied as the interests of landmark entrepreneur and scientist Alfred Nobel, the present book, Quantum Atom and Periodicity by Mihai V. Putz, explores the story of periodicity of chemical elements by incorporating topics spanning from history to topics as complex as the Feynman-Kleinert variational theory, density functional theory, as well as quantum theory of periodicity. The author has very nicely established a connection between the classical views and quantum theory about periodicity of elements. Readers from both physics as well as chemistry can appreciate and comprehend the book, with its clear descriptions and explanations. I recommend the book highly to students of both physics and chemistry who wishes to understand the quantum theory of periodicity of elements."
