A novel proposal for teaching organic chemistry based on a broader and simplified use of quantum chemistry theories and notions of some statistical thermodynamic concepts aiming to enrich the learning process of the organic molecular properties and organic reactions. A detailed physical chemistry approach to teach organic chemistry for undergraduate students is the main aim of this book. A secondary objective is to familiarize undergraduate students with computational chemistry since most of illustrations of optimized geometries (plus some topological graphs) and information is from quantum chemistry outputs which will also enable students to obtain a deeper understanding of organic chemistry.
The author is a graduate of chemistry (UFRuralRJ), MSc in Polymer Science and PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). Since 2009, he is professor of organic chemistry at Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN). He has one patent, three books and 33 papers to his credit. His primary research is on theoretical chemistry to investigate chemical bonds, aromaticity, intermolecular interactions and mechanisms of organic chemistry reactions.
