Today I launch this blog – a blog to accompany my new book Computational Organic Chemistry. The book is officially released today – so go out and buy a copy before you get all tied up with the new Harry Potter!

This blog serves mainly to update the book. I will post on new articles and web sites that relate to topics covered in the book. It also serves as a mechanism to get feedback from you the reader. I welcome all comments, corrections, and suggestions.

I will also try to utilize new technologies within the post. Structures of molecules are available as xyz-coordinates and also directly within the blog using the JMol utility. I have added InChIs for most compounds. Articles are referenced by DOIs. Other technologies, like RDFa will be introduced in the future.
