Chemical kinetics and mechanism by Michael Mortimer( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book and its accompanying CD introduces Chemistry at the first/second-year undergraduate level. Part Chemical Kinetics provides an introduction to chemical kinetics and the analysis of reaction mechanism. The coverage is wide-ranging from basic, well-established concepts to leading-edge research in femtochemistry. Part 2 and 3 are concerned with organic reaction mechanisms. Curly arrows are introduced and the key features of the two common mechanisms of nucleophilic substitution are reviewed, including kinetic features, stereochemical outcome and reaction coordinate diagrams. The book concludes with a Case Study on zeolites, examining their structure and internal dimensions in relation to their behaviour as molecular sieves and catalysts

Molecular modelling and bonding by Elaine Moore( )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do molecules adopt particular shapes? What determines the physical and chemical properties of a material? Molecular Modelling and Bonding answers these questions by introducing the ideas behind molecular and quantum mechanics, using a largely non-mathematical approach. Atomic and molecular orbitals, computational chemistry and bonding in solids are also discussed. A Case Study, Molecular Modelling in Drug Design, explores ways in which computer modelling, in conjunction with experimental techniques, is used to design new drugs. The accompanying CD-ROM illustrates applications of molecular and quantum mechanics, and includes many of the structures and orbitals illustrated in the text. It provides the programs necessary to view orbitals and 3D structures. The Molecular World series provides an integrated introduction to all branches of chemistry for both students wishing to specialise and those wishing to gain a broad understanding of chemistry and its relevance to the everyday world and to other areas of science

9 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at the common techniques used to prepare, purify and identify chemicals. Topics including distillation, recrystallisation, chromatography, elemental analysis, atomic absorption spectroscopy and mass spectrometry are discussed, and are illustrated on video on the accompanying CD-ROMs. Infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy are covered entirely through multi-media, with animations and virtual experiments. The reader is provided with examples for interpretation, and can draw in the structures using the software provided. There is also a set of interactive self-assess

Elements of the p block by Charlie Harding( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting a systematic approach to the chemistry of the p Block elements and hydrogen, this book also introduces some basic topics concerning chemical bonding, such as oxidation numbers, bond strengths, dipole moments and intermolecular forces. The chemistry is illustrated by coverage of the biological role of nitric oxide and of hydrogen bonding, and the new chemistry of carbon nanotubes. Applied aspects of the topic are developed in the two Case Studies, which examine the causes and prevention of acid rain and the inorganic chemical industry. The accompanying CD-ROMs cover silicate mineral structures, the inert pair effect and a database of chemical reactions of the p Block elements. The Molecular World series provides an integrated introduction to all branches of chemistry for both students wishing to specialise and those wishing to gain a broad understanding of chemistry and its relevance to the everyday world and to other areas of science. The books, with their Case Studies and accompanying multi-media interactive CD-ROMs, will also provide valuable resource material for teachers and lecturers. (The CD-ROMs are designed for use on a PC running Windows 95, 98, ME or 2000.)
Renewable energy : power for a sustainable future by Godfrey Boyle( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The provision of sustainable energy supplies for an expanding and increasingly productive world is one of the major issues facing civilization today. Renewable Energy examines both the practical and economic potential of the renewable energy sources to meet this challenge. The underlying physical and technological principles behind deriving power from direct solar (solar thermal and photovoltaics), indirect solar (biomass, hydro, wind and wave) and non-solar (tidal and geothermal) energy sources are explained, within the context of their environmental impacts, their economics and their future prospects. Together with its companion volume, Energy Systems and Sustainability, this book provides both perspective and detail on the relative merits and state of progress of technologies for utilizing the various 'renewables'. The analysis considers emissions, sustainability, cost implications and energy security, as political and economic pressures move society towards a low-carbon future. From an overview of basic energy conversion processes, through a discussion of the individual renewable sources, to a concluding examination of the prospects for their integration into national and international networks, this book provides a valuable insight into prospects for the renewables
