The question sounds vague and non-specific because my background in chemistry is limited to undergrad college courses. However, I am interested in learning the correlations between the atom-by-atom structure of molecules (simple, complex...) and the resultant physical properties thereof.
So far, it seems most the material online directly referencing the phrases "molecular structure" and "physical properties" is in the form of highly specialized research publications. Surely, there is a Basics to the Relationships between Molecular Structure and Physical Properties 101 out there, somewhere.
Ultimately, my questions sum up to the following:
Where may I go to learn these things?
What material may I read?
Who might I ask?
Where do I begin?
Thank you very much.
