Metals and chemical change by D. A Johnson( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questioning identity : gender, class, nation by Kath Woodward( )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is really happening when people either individually or in groups identify with particular definitions of themselves or strike out to take up new identities? Do gender, class and ethnicity offer some stability, or are they limiting?
Chemical kinetics and mechanism by Michael Mortimer( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,610 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

Mechanism synthesis by Lesley Smart( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Molecular World aims to develop an integrated approach, with major themes and concepts in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, set in the context of chemistry as a whole. The examples given illustrate both the application of chemistry in the natural world and its importance in industry. Case studies, written by acknowledged experts in the field, are used to show how chemistry impinges on topics of social and scientific interest, such as polymers, batteries, catalysis, liquid crystals and forensic science."
Molecular modelling and bonding by E. A Moore( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,518 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

Separation, purification and identification by Lesley Smart( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,443 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
Mechatronics : designing intelligent machines by J Johnson( )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mechatronics is the fusion of mechanics and electronics in the design of intelligent machines. This textbook is concerned with the concepts and techniques of artificial intelligence needed for the design of machines with advanced intelligent behaviour. It explores the topics of pattern recognition, neural networks, scheduling, reasoning, fuzzy logic, rule-based systems, machine learning, control and computer vision. This student guide shows how fifty years of research into artificial intelligence (AI) have borne fruit in the design of better and more intelligent machines. The twin objectives of the text are: to explain the theory of the mainstream ideas of AI and to show how these ideas can be applied in practical engineering situations
