Written for students beginning a formal study of chemistry, this volume encompasses many different topics in and approaches to introductory chemistry. Chapters are devoted to topics such as the atom, elements and the periodic table, bonding, equilibrium and kinetics, solutions, acids and bases, and chemical reactions. Several chapters discuss broad areas of chemistry including organic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, and industrial chemistry. Illustrations and diagrams help the student understand chemical structures and reactions, and numerous tables present a wealth of reference information. The historical developments of chemical concepts are traced, and biographical information is provided on key individuals responsible for the development of modern chemistry. Appendices include an extensive bibliography, a glossary of over 400 chemical terms, an overview of Nobel laureates in chemistry, and an element reference table. This book will be of use not only to students, but also to anyone seeking an overview of the field. Teachers of all grades can use Basics of Chemistry as a practical general reference.
Chemistry For You has been written for a wide range of middle-ability students who will benefit from its motivational style, leading them to better achievement at GCSE. This edition offers comprehensive coverage of the new GCSE specifications.
Das kompakte, übersichtliche und vielseitige Wörterbuch der Chemie ist ein unentbehrlicher Begleiter für Wissenschaftler, Übersetzer, Dozenten und Studenten, Lehrer und Schüler zwischen Reagensglas, Bunsenbrenner und "Hightech-Synthesechemie" im Labor. Es behandelt alle Teilgebiete der Chemie von der Allgemeinen und Theoretischen Chemie über die Anorganik zur Organik und Physikalischen Chemie, Biochemie, Nuklearchemie und Polymerchemie wie auch Geräte, Methoden, Analytik und Nanotechnologie. Thematische Begriffsfelder ("clusters") ermöglichen die zusammenhängende Erschließung eines Themas; die Sammlung thematisch verwandter Begriffe unter den jeweiligen übergeordneten Hauptstichwörtern erhöht die "Trefferwahrscheinlichkeit" bei der Wortsuche und erleichtert die Arbeit beim Übersetzen. So erscheinen beispielsweise die diversen spektroskopischen Verfahren unter dem Haupteintrag Spektroskopie - zusätzlich zu den alphabetisch geordneten Einträgen. Dieses innovative Konzept hat sich gegenüber den einfachen Wortlisten anderer Wörterbücher hervorragend bewährt. Theodor C. H. Cole ist amerikanischer Staatsbürger und arbeitet als Dozent, Übersetzer und Autor in Heidelberg. Er studierte Biologie, Chemie und Physik an den Universitäten Heidelberg, Berkeley und Paris und forschte biochemisch-analytisch an Naturstoffen. Mehrere Jahre unterrichtete er an der University of Maryland, European Division, und ist derzeit am Institut für Pharmazie und Molekulare Biotechnologie der Universität Heidelberg tätig. Als Wörterbuchautor ist Theodor Cole bereits bekannt u. a. durch das "Wörterbuch der Tiernamen" (2000) sowie das "Wörterbuch der Biologie" (2. Aufl., 2005).
Making explicit the connections between physical organic chemistry and critical fields such as organometallic chemistry, materials chemistry, bioorganic chemistry and biochemistry, this book escorts the reader into an area that has been thoroughly updated in recent times.
H F W Taylor was for many years Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at he University of Aberdeen, Scotland. Since 1948, his main research interest has been the chemistry of cement. His early work laid the foundations of our understanding of the structure at the nanometre level of C-S-H, the principal product formed when cement is mixed with water, and the one mainly reponsible for its hardening. Subsequent studies took him into many additional aspects of the chemistry and materials science of cement and concrete. His work has been recognized by Fellowships and by other honours and awards from many scientific societies in the UK, USA and elsewhere. This second edition of Cement chemistry addresses the chemistry and materials science of the principal silicate and aluminate cements used in building and Civil engineering. Emphasis throughout is on the underlying science. The book deals more specifically with the chemistry of Portland cement manufacture and the nature of the resulting product, the processes that occur when this product is mixed with water, the nature of the hardened material, the chemistry of other types of hydraulic cement, and chemical and microstructural aspects of concrete, including processes that affect its durability. Since the first edition of this book was published in 1990, research throughout the world has greatly augmented our knowledge in all of hese areas. The present edition has been updated and revised to take account of these advances. The reader will acquire a solid understanding of the subject and will be better equipped to deal with the problems and pitfalls that can arise in engineering practice as a result of inadequate understanding of the relevant chemistry. It will serve both as an introduction to those entering the subject for the first time and as a guide to the latest developments for those already experienced in the field.
This is a completely revised and updated edition of the comprehensive and widely used survey of cereal technology. The first section describes the botany, classification, structure, composition, nutritional importantance and uses of wheat, corn, oats, rye, sorghum, rice and barley, as well as six other grains. The book also details the latest methods of producing, cleaning, and storing these grains. The second section of the book offers current information on the technological and engineering principles of feed milling, flour milling, baking, malting, brewing, manufacturing breakfast cereals, snack food production, wet milling (starch and oil production from grains), rice processing, and other upgrading procedures applied to cereal grains. This section also explains the value and utilization of by-products and examines many rarely discussed processing methods. In addition, the book provides reviews of current knowledge on the dietary importance of cereal proteins, lipids, fibre, vitamins, minerals, and anti-nutrient factors, as well as the effects of processing methods on these materials.
Analytical Chemistry Has Made Significant Progress In The Last Two Decades. Several Methods Have Come To The Forefront While Some Classical Methods Have Been Relegated. An Attempt Has Been Made In This Edition To Strike A Balance Between These Two Extremes, By Retaining Most Significant Methods And Incorporating Some Novel Techniques. Thus An Endeavour Has Been Made To Make This Book Up To Date With Recent Methods.The First Part Of This Book Covers The Classical Volumetric As Well As Gravimetric Methods Of Analysis. The Separation Methods Are Prerequisite For Dependable Quantitative Methods Of Analysis. Therefore Not Only Solvent Extraction Separations But Also Chromatographic Methods Such As Adsorption, Partition, Ion- Exchange, Exclusion Andelectro Chromatography Have Been Included. To Keep Pace With Modern Developments The Newly Discovered Techniques Such As Ion Chromatography, Super-Critical Fluid Chromatography And Capillary Electrophoresis Have Been Included.The Next Part Of The Book Encompases The Well Known Spectroscopic Methods Such As Uv, Visible, Ir, Nmr, And Esr Techniques And Also Atomic Absorption And Plasma Spectroscopy And Molecular Luminescences Methods. Novel Analytical Techniques Such As Auger, Esca And Photo Accoustic Spectroscopy Of Surfaces Are Also Included.The Final Part Of This Book Covers Thermal And Radioanalytical Methods Of Analysis. The Concluding Chapters On Electroanalytical Techniques Include Potientometry, Conductometry. Coulometry And Voltametry Inclusive Of All Kinds Of A Polarography. The Theme Of On Line Analysis Is Covered In Automated Methods Of Analysis.To Sustain The Interest Of The Reader Each Chapter Is Provided With Latest References To The Monographs In The Field. Further, To Test The Comprehension Of The Subject Each Chapter Is Provided With Large Number Of Solved And Unsolved Problems.This Book Should Be Useful To Those Reads Who Have Requisite Knowledge In Chemistry And Are Majoring In Analytical Chemistry. It Is Also Useful To Practising Chemists Whose Sole Aim Is To Keep Abreast With Modern Developments In The Field.
