Chemistry(3) establishes the fundamental principles of all three strands of chemistry; organic, inorganic and physical. By building on what students have learned at school, using carefully-worded explanations, annotated diagrams and worked examples, it presents an approachable introduction to chemistry and its relevance to everyday life.
Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences provides a balanced presentation of the concepts of physical chemistry, and their applications to biology and biochemistry. Written to straddle the worlds of physical chemistry and the life sciences, it shows how the tools of physical chemistry can elucidate and illuminate biological questions.
Inspiring and motivating students from the moment it published, Organic Chemistry has established itself in just one edition as the students' choice of organic chemistry text. Its explanatory, mechanistic, evidence-based approach makes it perfect for fostering a true understanding of the subject.
The ability to design effective syntheses is an essential skill for organic chemists. This concise text uses a wide range of examples to teach students of chemistry how to adopt a logical and versatile approach to the design of synthetic routes.
X-ray crystallography, a powerful technique for structure determination, plays a major role in modern research. This primer gives a concise and accessible account of the technique, emphasising its wide-ranging practical application to engineering and the physical and biological sciences.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance offers an accessible introduction to the physical principles of liquid-state NMR, with examples, applications, and exercises provided throughout to enable beginning undergraduates to get to grips with this important analytical technique.
Intended for chemistry, physics and material science undergraduates, this work is an introduction to the science of surfaces. It incorporates both chemical thermodynamics and modern spectroscopic methods of analysing surfaces. It shows how the physico-chemical concepts may be applied in elucidating surface structure, reactivity and composition.
An understanding of spectroscopic techniques in the analysis of chemical structures is an essential to all chemistry degree courses. This book provides the essential material needed by undergraduates, in a compact form. The book is also likely to be of use to postgraduates in organic chemistry as reference material in their daily research.
This primer seeks to strip off some of the mystery that often surrounds carbohydrate chemistry, a subject taught in all undergraduate courses, by highlighting and summarising some of the central principles and ideas and by illustrating them with both classical and state-of-the-art examples.
This primer describes succinctly the range of NMR techniques commonly used in modern research, and explains how these experiments actually work, giving a unique perspective on this powerful experimental tool.
Atkins' Physical Chemistry is widely acknowledged by both students and lecturers around the globe to be the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. Now in its eleventh edition, the text has been enhanced with additional learning features and maths support, re-organised into discrete Topics, to make the text more flexible to teach from and more readable for students.
This brand new addition to the Oxford Chemistry Primers series provides the most accessible first introduction to electrochemistry, combining explanation of the fundamental concepts with practical examples of how they are applied in a range of real-world situations.
Thermodynamics of Chemical Processes is the only self-contained text to cover the thermodynamics of chemical processes at a level appropriate for undergraduates. Describing the basic principles which govern reactivity and phase equilibria in chemical systems, the text contains a number of worked examples and problems.
Essential reading for all undergraduate chemistry students, this engaging text has been carefully designed to help students successfully make the challenging transition from school through to university, get the most out of their education, and ultimately use their time at university to enhance their employability.
Environmental Chemistry: A global perspective describes the chemical principles which underpin the natural processes occurring within and between the air, water, and soil, and explores how human activities have impacted on these processes, giving rise to environmental issues of global concern.
Chemistry For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781119293460) was previously published as Chemistry For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781118007303). While this version features a new Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the prior release and should not be considered a new or updated product.
The Periodic Table: Its Story and Its Significance traces the evolution and development of the periodic table, from Mendeleev's 1869 first published table and onto the modern understanding provided by modern physics.
This title provides concise yet comprehensive coverage of analytical chemistry at an undergraduate level, providing easy access to the core information in the field. It covers all the important areas of analytical chemistry.
Why did Gandhi hate iodine (I, 53)? This title includes tales that follow carbon, neon, silicon, gold and every single element on the table as they play out their parts in human history, finance, mythology, conflict, the arts, medicine and the lives of the mad scientists who discovered them.
Provides an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context. This book introduces the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer. It includes chapters on the experimental approach to determining and predicting protein structure.
Traces the history and cultural impact of the elements on humankind, and examines why people have long sought to identify the substances around them. Looking beyond the Periodic Table, the author takes us on a tour: from the Greek philosophers who propounded a system with four elements to the modern-day scientists who are able to create their own.
Introducing the background theory and techniques of molecular modelling, this text also illustrates applications in studying physical, chemical and biological phenomena. It includes simple numerical examples and explanatory figures.
Intended for Key Stage 1 and 2 levels, this chart features a table of all the elements in their correct groups. Useful for whole-class teaching, it also contains information about the structure of an atom and the discovery of the Periodic Table. The groups are colour-coded for easy readability and differentiation.
