The Chemical Bond III – 100 Years Old and Getting Stronger by D. Michael P. Mingos : These three volumes of Structure and Bonding celebrate the 100th anniversary of the seminal papers by Lewis and Kossel. These papers, which formed the basis of the current view of the chemical bond, were published independently in 1916 and have greatly influenced the development of theoretical chemistry during the last century. Their essential ideas, which were initially formulated within classical Newtonian framework, have withstood many experimental tests and proved to be sufficiently flexible to incorporate the newer quantum mechanical ideas, which emerged in the 1920s and 1930s. Most importantly, Lewis’ description of the covalent bond provided a graphical notation and a language for experimental chemists, which enabled generations of chemists to constructively discuss and predict the structures of molecules and graphically represent the course of chemical reactions. The Lewis and Kossel descriptions of chemical bonding are cornerstones of the undergraduate curriculum. They have achieved this pre-eminent distinction by evolving and incorporating a flexible view of chemical bonding, based on the symmetry characteristics and radial distribution functions of atomic orbitals. The development of a universally accepted notation for representing the bonds in inorganic and organic molecules has been particularly significant. Spectroscopic and structural results, which emerged as chemistry incorporated quantum mechanical concepts, provided detailed information concerning the structures of molecules not only in the solid state but also in the liquid and gas phases. These have provided increasingly rigorous tests of the bonding models, which emerged from the quantum mechanical description of the chemical bond.

Book Description:
The series Structure and Bonding publishes critical reviews on topics of research concerned with chemical structure and bonding. The scope of the series spans the entire Periodic Table and addresses structure and bonding issues associated with all of the elements. It also focuses attention on new and developing areas of modern structural and theoretical chemistry such as nanostructures, molecular electronics, designed molecular solids, surfaces, metal clusters and supramolecular structures. Physical and spectroscopic techniques used to determine, examine and model structures fall within the purview of Structure and Bonding to the extent that the focus is on the scientific results obtained and not on specialist information concerning the techniques themselves. Issues associated with the development of bonding models and generalizations that illuminate the reactivity pathways and rates of chemical processes are also relevant. The individual volumes in the series are thematic. The goal of each volume is to give the reader, whether at a university or in industry, a comprehensive overview of an area where new insights are emerging that are of interest to a larger scientific audience. Thus each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years should be presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. A description of the physical basis of the experimental techniques that have been used to provide the primary data may also be appropriate, if it has not been covered in detail elsewhere. The coverage need not be exhaustive in data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the new principles being developed that will allow the reader, who is not a specialist in the area covered, to understand the data presented. Discussion of possible future research directions in the area is welcomed.
Review articles for the individual volumes are invited by the volume editors.
