Fuzzy Logic has gained increasing acceptance as a way to deal with complexity and uncertainty in many areas of science and engineering. This book is the first to address its practical applications to chemical systems. Ten distinguished authors discuss the role of fuzzy logic in the characterization of a variety of chemical concepts, including chirality, quantum systems, molecular engineering and design, and hierarchical classification methods. Fuzzy Logic in Chemistry will appeal to both students and professionals who are seeking to learn more about theory and applications in an area of growing importance to the physical sciences.

Key Features

  • The first book on the applications of fuzzy logic in chemistry
  • Covers a topic relevant to many disciplines, including molecular design
  • Discusses applications of fuzzy logic to the physical sciences, a rapidly growing area
  • Features chapters from highly distinguished authors in the physical sciences


Graduate students and academics in chemistry and chemical engineering; students of fuzzy systems
